Women's Inclusive Sexual Health Clinic (WISH) at UPMC Magee Women's Hospital

Sexual health is a vital part of a woman's overall well-being.

During and after cancer treatment, women can have sexual health changes such as:

  • Vaginal pain.
  • Pelvic pain.
  • Itching or burning.
  • Decreased interest in sex.
  • Decreased pleasure with sex.
  • Changes in body image.

WISH is part of the Magee-Womens Gynecologic Cancer Program. We help women talk about and resolve these changes.

Our experts offer you confidential, caring, and compassionate support.

What To Expect at Your WISH Appointment

Before your first visit with WISH, we'll send you a detailed questionnaire to complete and bring with you.

Our experts will take a full medical history and do a focused medical exam.

We then work with you to form a treatment plan.

Your first visit will take about one hour.
