Well Women Visits & Annual Exams
The annual well woman exam serves as a time for you and your healthcare provider to review your comprehensive medical history, identify new and ongoing issues, and screen for preventable illnesses. Annual well woman visits are recommended even if individual components of the exam are not performed every year, such as pap testing.
Contraception allows women to prevent unintended pregnancy and plan the timing of their families. It is important to find a birth control that complements your lifestyle and specific health needs.
Common GYN Infections
Vaginal and urinary tract infections are common gynecologic infections. Women may also experience a wide range of vaginal discharge. There are many symptoms, diagnoses, and options for treatment.
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, or PCOS, is one of the most common endocrine disorders in the U.S. Symptoms of PCOS can include irregular periods, excess body hair & oil production, weight gain, inability to lose weight, and acne. Treatment is tailored to each woman’s individual life and reproductive status.
Uterine fibroids—also known as uterine myomas and formally called leiomyomas—are the most common types of pelvic tumors in females. Fibroids are benign uterine tumors arising from the smooth muscle cells in the wall of the uterus. They are most often clinically relevant in reproductive age and perimenopausal women.
Endometriosis occurs when the endometrial tissue, or the inner lining of the uterus, implants outside of the uterus. The most common sites of endometriosis in the pelvis include the ovaries, fallopian tubes, ligaments supporting the uterus, and the bowel. However, endometrial tissue can spread to remote sites including the cervix, bladder, and beyond.
Menopause presents with a variety of symptoms, including hot flashes, night sweats, and vaginal dryness. The treatment varies by individual. A provider may recommend lifestyle changes, over-the-counter remedies, prescription therapies, hormone therapy, or non-hormonal therapy.
