To visit the Center for Sexual Wellness, call 816.452.3300

At the Center for Sexual Wellness, our goal is to help you attain the wonderful feeling about yourself and your relationship that comes with having a satisfying sex life. There is a good chance your problem is fairly common and an equally good chance that it can be treated or alleviated.

Sexual Health

Issues involving intimacy or sexuality are something women rarely discuss with each other or their physicians, yet more than 40% of women will experience some form of interruption to their sexual health at some point in their life.

Any number of factors can result in an interruption in your life and the enjoyment of your relationships. Some include:

  • medication
  • a medical condition or surgery
  • a birth or other life event
  • depression or fatigue

Unfortunately there is a misconception that these problems are only imagined, that they are an inevitable process of aging or they are just an excuse to no longer participate in sexual activity. However, they are real and so are the treatments and therapies that are available to address these issues.

The Center for Sexual Wellness

The Center was a concept developed by Dr. Morgan to meet the growing needs of patients who have sexual health issues. Until now patients have not had an easily accessible option where they can seek help and openly discuss their sexual concerns with a provider that is trained and comfortable with this health concern. The Center for Sexual Wellness is the first and only center in the area to provide an integrated medical and consultative approach to female sexual dysfunction.

Symptoms We Treat

At the Center we see women with a wide variety of sexual concerns. We treat women who are experiencing:

  • lack of desire, either as a recent development or a lifelong problem
  • women who cannot become aroused or “turned on”
  • women who have pain in the labia and vagina
  • difficulty associated with intercourse, or who cannot have intercourse at all
  • women who are having orgasmic problems

Most women’s sexual problems fall into one of these categories although, occasionally one does not. In some cases it is difficult for the woman to define for herself what the problem is, although she knows something is wrong. We can help define the problem so that treatment may get started.

Treatment Options

We treat women using a wide variety of modalities including:

  • testosterone, progesterone and bioidentical estrogen
  • transdermal, vaginal and oral medications
  • dilators, self-stimulation devices and biofeedback
  • consultative services of a vaginal/pelvic physical therapist and a certified sex therapist along with several cognitive therapists are available when needed
  • medications and invasive surgery may become necessary

Your First Visit

Your first visit to the Center for Sexual Wellness will be 45 to 60 minutes. You will complete a thorough medical history and pertinent questionnaires pertaining to your specific needs.

Blood work, or additional testing, will be ordered if necessary. Often we will not be able to provide a treatment plan at the first visit. A follow up appointment may be scheduled to allow time for the testing results to arrive and be reviewed.

James Morgan, DO, Director

James H. Morgan, DO, FACOOG, serves as director of the Center and will be conducting your evaluation and coordinating your treatment plan. He is a board certified gynecologist who has practiced in the Northland since 1991.

Dr. Morgan realized several years ago that issues involving sexual health were often not being addressed by health care providers. After completing a sexual medicine preceptorship as well as attending numerous courses, lectures and conferences regarding female sexual health care, Dr. Morgan is uniquely qualified to thoroughly evaluate, treat and arrange consultative services, when necessary for his patients.

Dr. Morgan realizes that sexual problems can be complicated, confusing and difficult to discuss. Therefore, we make every effort to make your experience as comfortable as possible.
