Abnormal bleeding can occur at any point during a woman’s life from the time she starts menstruating. Whether it happens during, before, or after your menstrual period, getting it examined by a professional is important.
Abnormal PAP Smears and HPV
Abnormal result from a PAP smear or a diagnosis of HPV are something that many women experience. Annual visits can help detect and address problems early and lower your risk of developing other more serious conditions.
Cramps and Pelvic Pain
If you begin to have cramps or pelvic pain that is abnormally severe during period, intercourse, or any other part of your menstruation cycle, call your gynecologist. These are not part of a normal cycle, contrary to popular belief.
Cycle irregularities can be an indicator that a more serious condition is present, such as endometriosis and polycystic ovarian syndrome. With proper testing, we can determine the underlying cause of your cycle irregularity and develop a personalized treatment plan for you.
Endometriosis is where tissue grows outside of the uterus or on other harmful areas of the body. While there is no cure for endometriosis, it is easily diagnosable. The condition can be treated with medication, hormone therapy, surgery, and alternative medicine.
A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection that occurs in any part of your urinary tract system. UTIs can be uncomfortable, painful, and, if left untreated, can result in a kidney infection. If you are experiencing pain or burning while urinating, frequent urination, or bloody urine, call your doctor today.
Vaginal infections are often the result of bacteria buildup in the vaginal area. There are several types of infections women can experience, all of which can be treated with medication.
Vaginal rejuvenation is an umbrella term for procedures that help to tighten loose skin, strengthen muscles, and improve the function of the vaginal area. While not everyone is a candidate for this, it can help women who have experienced changes from childbirth or menopause.
