How Can We Help You?
We look forward to seeing you for your annual exam!
Choose which office you would like to visit and call to schedule an appointment. Please try to schedule you appointment when you will not be having your anticipated menstrual period.
Before you are examined, we will go over your past medical history. During this time, please feel free to discuss any issues or concerns you may be having. Depending on your age, past medical conditions or present concerns, we may also discuss mammograms, bone density screenings, birth control, HPV vaccinations and sexually transmitted infections.
Your gynecologic exam will most often include breast and pelvic exams, a pap smear collection and a STI test.
Many of our patients experience non-emergent symptoms. Some of the most common symptoms we see include:
Long, heavy, painful periods
Spotting and/or bleeding in between periods
If you have been off birth control and trying to conceive within one year of having regular unprotected sex, you may have infertility problems and it is recommended that you and your partner are evaluated.
Change in sexual interest
Pain during/after sex
Pain in your abdomen
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please call your doctor and schedule an appointment!
For many women and couples, deciding to have a baby is a very important decision!
If you are planning to become pregnant:
We encourage you to make a pre-pregnancy checkup. During a pre-pregnancy checkup, a physical exam will take place, as well as a review of your medical, family and obstetrical history. We will also discuss any medications you are currently taking and we would plan a healthy diet and lifestyle.
If you are trying to become pregnant:
For many couples who have been off birth control, will conceive within one year of having regular unprotected sex. However, many couples have trouble conceiving and may need help. In that case, a fertility evaluation will be recommended for you and your partner.
If you are having difficulty conceiving, please do not hesitate to call. We look forward to helping you!
If you found out you are pregnant:
Please call your doctor as soon as you find out you are pregnant. The first few weeks of pregnancy are very important in healthy child development. Your doctor would like you to come in 6-10 weeks into your pregnancy for your initial prenatal visit. During this visit, any questions you may have will be answered and detailed information will be discussed to having a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby!
Any further questions or concerns, please call your doctor!
For many women, menopause happens around 50 years of age. Menopause marks the end of a woman's reproductive years, and is diagnosed after not receiving a menstrual period for one year. The time leading up to menopause is called perimenopause, which can begin many years before menopause. For most women, the last one to two years of perimenopause is when they experience the most symptoms.
Some very common symptoms of menopause include:
Increased Vaginal Dryness, Itching, Infections and Pain
Loss in Sexual Interest
Every woman will experience symptoms differently. If you are having any questions, concerns or are experiencing symptoms, we encourage you to call your doctor to make an appointment!
