Women’s Behavioral Health Services

Women’s Intimacy and Sexual Health

This service was developed to address women’s unmet sexual health needs and support a healthy sexual life for women of all ages. We offer expertise to help women cope with sexual changes that follow gynecologic and breast cancer treatments, menopause, pregnancy and childbearing, as well as sexual difficulties that are long-standing. We provide evidence-based treatment for sexual difficulties, as well as the stress that can accompany them.

Maternal-Fetal Psychiatry

We specialize in identifying and treating mental illness during pregnancy and the postpartum period. Women’s Behavioral Health at the Wexner Medical Center is one of few university centers providing clinical care AND conducting research in these areas. Our comprehensive treatment planning, often including a combination of medication and psychotherapy, is tailored to the individual, always striving for the best outcomes for mother and baby.

Well-Being Across the Reproductive Lifecycle 

In addition to pregnancy-related concerns, WBH offers expertise in emotional, reproductive and sexual health needs throughout the lifetime. Common concerns include:

  • Premenstrual dysphoric disorder
  • Mental health aspects of menopause
  • Interactions between psychiatric medications and birth control
  • Psychiatric medication impact on sexual functioning
