Sexual Health

Sexual health is an essential part of overall health, but the topic doesn’t always get the attention it deserves. At Memorial Health Urgent Care and Infusions in Katy, Texas, you have access to the full scope of sexual health services. Book a visit online or over the phone today to get started. You can also walk in to receive prompt support for your sexual health questions and concerns.

What is sexual health?

Sexual health is far more than the absence of disease. It encompasses your physical, emotional, social, and mental well-being as they relate to sexuality. Sex is an essential part of human life, not something to be hidden or ignored. 

All adults deserve to have healthy, fulfilling, and respectful relationships. Fortunately, sexual health is more fully embraced by the medical community than it was in previous generations. 

When you rely on a team of highly skilled professionals for your sexual health needs, you can be rest assured that you will receive top-quality care from compassionate providers. This can bring significant peace of mind as you navigate your intimate relationships. 


What are some examples of sexual health issues?

Sexual health encompasses many different topics. Not everyone shares the same needs when it comes to this area of health and wellness. Some of the needs that fall under the umbrella of sexual health include:

  • Yeast infections
  • Mastitis treatment
  • Bacterial vaginal infection
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Minor breast abscess treatment
  • Pelvic pain
  • Bartholin’s abscess
  • Pregnancy testing
  • Vaginal discharge and/or bleeding
  • Tampon removal

These are just some of the sexual health issues that can be addressed at Memorial Health Urgent Care and Infusions. 

Sexual violence continues to be a serious issue among many populations. Anyone can fall victim to this type of violence, and the best way to prevent a negative outcome is through counseling about how to identify and address sexual violence. 


Are sexually transmitted diseases still a public health problem?

Ask most people about sexual health issues and they are likely to discuss sexually transmitted disease. Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are a serious personal and public health issue. If you’re sexually active, sexually transmitted disease prevention, screening, and treatment is a critical part of overall health and wellness. 

Some of the sexually transmitted diseases that continue to circulate include:

  • Bacterial vaginosis
  • Syphilis
  • Gonorrhea
  • Genital herpes
  • Hepatitis
  • Human papillomavirus
  • Tricomoniasis

Not all STDs create clear symptoms, so it isn’t always clear that an infection is present. Testing is the only way to know your status and prevent spreading an infection to others.
