When you think of a sex counselor some interesting Images may come to mind; indeed, sex is a loaded, sensitive and often uncomfortable topic to discuss with a healthcare professional. Statistics show that physicians spend very little if any, time discussing sexual health in a routine visit with patients. This may be due to their personal discomfort with a conversation about sex or they don’t believe they have adequate knowledge or resources to help.
Pelvic physical therapy is the perfect setting for a conversation about sexual health. Questions about sexual health are routine at least at the first pelvic PT visit. It’s not a surprise to be asked, “Are you sexually active?” “Do you have any concerns/questions about your sexual health?” When you begin to understand the pelvis and the interrelationship of the urinary, bowel and sexual systems it is natural that sex is an important part of our health and wellness (and I beg to add, Vitality).
In my pursuit to provide complete, current and thorough counseling at Pelvic Wellness Center, I have completed the 195 hours of rigorous postgraduate education in sexuality counseling and sexuality education at the University of Michigan Sexual Health Certificate Program.
Our belief at Pelvic Wellness Center is that sex is an integral part of health and wellness throughout life. Many of my patients report some of the best sex of their lives has been after menopause!
We invite you to bring your questions and concerns to us at Pelvic Wellness Center. We are happy to engage in a conversation about how sexual health can be a satisfying part of your life.
