Women who have sex with women WSW are women who engage in sexual activities with other women, whether or not they identify themselves as lesbian , bisexual , heterosexual , or dispense with sexual identification altogether. In terms of medical issues with regard to lesbian sexual practices , the sexual identification of women who consult a medical professional is usually not sought nor volunteered, due to the misconceptions and assumptions about sexuality and the hesitancy of some women in disclosing their accurate sexual histories even to a physician. Many women who do not participate in heterosexual activity do not go to see a physician because they do not require birth control , which is the initiating factor for most women to seek consultation with a gynecologist when they become sexually active. Lesbians are less likely than their heterosexual and bisexual counterparts to get screened for cervical cancer , with some being refused screenings by medical professionals.
