Women’s Gynecology Services
We offer complete gynecologic and obstetric care. Services include:
Well Woman Exams. This free annual exam typically involves a discussion of your overall health and medical history, a pelvic exam, breast exam, and routine screenings. You will have weight and height measured and blood pressure checked. Your doctor will also ask about your lifestyle. This exam is a great opportunity to get tested for STIs and pregnancy. If you are between ages 21 and 65, it is recommended that you get a pap smear every 3 years, which can also be done at your annual women’s gynecology exam.
Diagnosis and Treatment of Gynecologic Problems. If you are experiencing unusual or uncomfortable gynecologic symptoms, make an appointment with a gynecologist. You can have your symptoms evaluated and diagnosed, and receive a prescription for treatment. Symptoms of problems can include swelling, burning, itching, redness, or soreness in the vaginal area; genital lumps or sores; significant changes in vaginal discharge; and more. Read this article to learn about more symptoms, and find relief at our women’s gynecology practice.
STD Testing. An appointment for an STD test is a simple, safe and effective way to stay on top of your sexual health. Certain STDs cause symptoms, including some of the symptoms listed above. Many, however, can be asymptomatic — which means you should regularly get tested for STDs if you are sexually active, even if you feel normal. A doctor at our women’s gynecology practice can test you for STDs. If you test positive, you can begin treatment right away and take steps to protect partners from exposure.
Birth Control and Family Planning. If you are not ready to get pregnant, talk to a doctor at our practice about the many different types of birth control available. Many forms are hormonal; some are not. Some forms of birth control are inserted for long-term protection from pregnancy, while others need to be taken daily. Discuss your lifestyle and preferences with a doctor at our women’s gynecology practice. You will receive valuable information about the different forms of birth control and which one might be best for you and your needs.
