Sexual Medicine supports women with such sexual health concerns as low desire, difficulty with orgasm, and pelvic pain, with the goal of optimizing their sexual health. We take women’s sexual concerns seriously and believe that women deserve to be heard and treated with respect.

Functional Medicine is an approach to healthcare that focuses on examining core imbalances that underlie a disease and illness. Rather than just treating symptoms, it uses a systems-oriented approach that engages both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. This approach recognizes that each person’s path to disease or health is unique. We try to understand individual factors in order to modify them and shifty the momentum from disease to health.
Your breasts change as you go through different stages of your life. It’s important to learn what is normal for your breasts. This is called breast self-awareness. The key to breast self-awareness is knowing how your breasts normally look and feel. This helps you to notice any changes.
Breast self-awareness isn’t about following a certain method and schedule. Breast self-awareness is knowing what’s normal for your breasts. That way you can notice even small changes right away. If you see any changes, report them to your healthcare provider right away.
Breast Health Assessment
Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women other than skin cancer. The American Cancer Society says the breast cancer death rate is declining. This is probably because of earlier detection through routine screening and better treatment. Early detection is the main way to find breast cancer when it’s small and easier to treat.
This short assessment will help you learn if you have risk factors that may raise your breast cancer risk. It is not a complete review of all breast cancer risks. For a complete evaluation of your risks, schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Women’s Health of CMA. Knowing your breast cancer risk is helpful when making a breast cancer screening plan.
