Have a question or concern? MIT Health can help! We are committed to providing comprehensive, supportive, individualized healthcare and health information to individuals with diverse expressions of gender and sexuality.

Communicating with your primary care provider about your sexual health is an essential part of patient care. After all, sexual health is an important part of overall health.
