Contraceptive care is part of your overall healthcare. There are several different birth control methods, including hormonal methods, IUDs (intrauterine devices to prevent pregnancy), Depo-Provera® (a quarterly injection that suppresses ovulation), Nexplanon (implantable contraceptive rod), NuvaRing® (a small flexible ring that you wear inside your vagina to stop ovulation), the Pill, and others.
We are experts in all areas of contraception. We always take the time to answer your questions, provide reliable information, and work with you to determine which method is right for you.
Gardasil 9 is an FDA-approved vaccine that can help protect you from future cervical cancer. This vaccine induces immunity to the nine most common strains of the HPV virus that cause cervical cancer and genital warts. We are always happy to sit down with you and answer all of your questions about HPV or any other health-related matter.
Menstrual disorders affect a large percentage of women during their lifetime. This can include issues such as painful periods (dysmenorrhea), PMS symptoms, heavy bleeding, bleeding between periods, and irregular or missed periods.
Fibroids are a very common condition. In many cases, they do not cause any symptoms. Some studies have shown that as many as 70-80% of women will develop a fibroid by the age of 50. A fibroid, usually benign, is an abnormal growth of the muscles of the uterine walls. In others, they can lead to abnormal bleeding or become so large they need to be removed.
STIs are diseases that are spread during sexual contact. In women, many sexually transmitted infections do not cause symptoms.
Depending on the specific STI, symptoms in women can include burning with urination, unusual or increased vaginal discharge, pain in the lower back or abdomen, nausea, fever, bleeding between periods, discomfort during sexual activity, genital sores, and others.
Common STIs include HPV, genital warts, genital herpes, gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomonas, and the Zika virus.
Menopause is a complex transition that occurs when a woman’s ovaries no longer produce hormones the way they once did. The process is gradual, usually taking several years. The average age is 51.
Symptoms can include hot flashes, emotional changes, insomnia, night sweats, vaginal dryness, urinary disorders, and others.
Urinary tract infections are common in adolescent and adult women. Symptoms of a UTI can include burning during urination, frequent urges to urinate, pain or pressure in the lower back or abdomen, fatigue, fever, chills, and foul-smelling urine. Most UTIs can be easily treated with antibiotics.
There are many conditions for which pelvic floor physical therapy is appropriate. Such conditions can include urinary incontinence, constipation, pelvic pain, painful intercourse, uterine prolapse, and normal postpartum recovery.
We are happy to provide pelvic and obstetric ultrasounds for both routine obstetrical care and various gynecological conditions.
Depending on a patient's personal or family history, she may be at increased risk of developing cancer. For women who qualify, we offer blood or saliva testing to determine a patient's risk of breast, ovarian, uterine, and several other cancers.
Surgical Procedures We Perform
The endometrium is the tissue that lines the inside of the uterus. An endometrial biopsy is the removal of a small sample of the lining tissue performed to help diagnose abnormalities of the uterus. It is usually performed in the office and does not require anesthesia.
An IUD, or intrauterine device, is considered to be very safe and one of the most effective methods of pregnancy prevention. IUDs can be either hormonal or non-hormonal and can even be placed in women who have never had a baby. It can be removed after several years or sooner if desired. The procedure for insertion and removal of an IUD is generally performed in the office and is well-tolerated by most women.
Colposcopy is a procedure whereby the cervix (and/or the vagina and vulva) are examined by using a standing microscope, called a colposcope. It is usually used to examine the cervix for abnormalities when a Pap smear indicates abnormal cells. Biopsies are often done of the abnormal area during the Colposcopy exam.
Hysteroscopy is a procedure that utilizes a Hysteroscope, a small camera that is introduced through the cervix into the uterus to diagnose and treat certain conditions such as polyps, fibroids and other abnormalities of the lining of the uterus. It can be performed on an outpatient basis and is well tolerated.
Laparoscopy is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure that allows your doctor to see within the abdomen using a thin, telescope-like instrument inserted through a small surgical opening (roughly the size of a dime).
Once placed, the device allows your doctor to view internal structures and organs such as your ovaries, fallopian tubes and uterus. This procedure may be utilized for several indications including ovarian cyst removal, tubal ligation and hysterectomy.
An ovarian cyst is a fluid-filled sac that develops within an ovary, often during ovulation, when an egg is released each month. Many women have ovarian cysts that do not cause symptoms, however in some cases they may need to be removed if they are large, persistent, or cause pain. They usually can be removed by laparoscopy, an outpatient surgical procedure.
A tubal ligation is a procedure in which the fallopian tubes, which are necessary for pregnancy, are cut or blocked to permanently prevent conception. The procedure is performed either within a day or so of a vaginal delivery, at the time of a cesarean section, or laparoscopically on an outpatient basis.
If you are certain that you do not wish to become pregnant, your doctor can advise you about the risks and specifics of a tubal ligation.
A hysterectomy is a surgical procedure that removes part or all of the uterus and cervix. There are many reasons for which you might require a hysterectomy, including cancer, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, and others. Depending on the reason for the hysterectomy, you may be able to keep your ovaries, which is preferable whenever possible.
