These yearly visits are very important for women. We offer breast cancer screenings, gynecological exams, cervical cancer screening, pap smears, pregnancy testing, and birth control maintenance
The pap smear is a test that detects any subtle changes in the cells of your cervix that may indicate cervical cancer. This test is a screening to detect changes or cervical lesions that may indicate or lead to cancer. We also screen for human papilloma virus (HPV). HPV is a virus that can lead to changes in the tissue and cause uterine and ovarian cancer.
Approximately 1 in 8 women in the United States will have breast cancer in their lifetime. We offer breast cancer screening and mammogram scheduling that will help detect any abnormalities in your breast tissue at the very earliest possible. The key to beating breast cancer is to stop it early in its tracks.
The average age for menopause in the United States is 51. Along with the cessation of your menstrual period, menopause brings health concerns such as the loss of calcium that can lead to brittle bones. To keep your bones strong, we offer bone density testing to detect bone changes before it becomes a problem.
Along with menopause can come many uninvited symptoms such as irregular periods, vaginal dryness, hot flashes, chills, night sweats, sleep problems, mood changes, weight gain and slowed metabolism, thinning hair, dry skin, and loss of breast fullness. Hormone replacement therapy can help relieve some of the untoward effects of menopause. Call us today for a consultation to see if HRT is right for you.
Tissue changes secondary to low estrogen levels after menopause can leave you with increased risk of urinary tract infections, urinary incontinence, and pain or burning with intercourse. We utilize a special technique that involves the use of your own blood to rejuvenate your genital tissue, leaving you feeling like your old self again.
