Sharing/Openness is no longer taboo.
Sexual Wellness is defined as the state of physical, emotional, mental and social well-being related to sexuality that can be assessed and improved through sensitive and proper medical care. When sex hurts because of dryness or the changes from delivering your child occurs, this can change a woman’s perception, reception, and desire for intimacy and sexual function. The providers of CFWS help women to define the problem and develop a solution in a safe, caring, judgment-free environment.

Seven Categories of Urinary Incontinence
Urge Incontinence (Overactive Bladder) – Inability to hold urine long enough to reach restroom. Women often describe a sudden urge to urinate followed immediately by leaking. Some leak on the way to the bathroom or while they are taking off their clothes.
Functional Incontinence – Leakage (usually resulting from one or more causes) due to factors impairing your ability to reach the restroom in time because of physical conditions (e.g., arthritis or using a walker). This may or may not represent a problem of the pelvic floor, but your health care provider can offer potential solutions.
Fistula – This is an abnormal connection between the vagina and the urinary tract, which results in urinary incontinence. This usually happens after some types of surgery, trauma, or radiation to the area. Urinary incontinence due to fistulas is relatively uncommon.
Overflow Incontinence – Leakage or “spill-over” of urine when the quantity of urine exceeds the bladder’s capacity to hold it. Usually due to some blockage or obstruction preventing the bladder from emptying. This stops the bladder from emptying well and so, small amounts of leakage happen frequently. Overflow incontinence is less common among women, unless they have had bladder surgery, vaginal prolapse, or a neurologic problem.
Diverticulum – Urine collects in a pouch within the urethra and tends to dribble out.
