Gynecology Q & A
Why should I see a gynecologist?
Women should see a gynecologist if they’re sexually active, have irregular periods, or experience other issues involving the reproductive system.
The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology recommends that girls begin seeing a gynecologist between the ages of 13 and 15 so they can learn about their bodies and prepare for the changes they will experience during puberty.
Gynecologists perform many routine procedures to make sure you are healthy. Some of these procedures include well-woman exams, adolescent gynecologic exams, family planning, Pap smears, and breast exams.
Regular check-ups at Cross Roads Hormonal Health & Wellness can help you, and the doctors identify any potential health concerns before they become a significant problem. The doctors can also help if a problem does develop and you require treatment.
What does a gynecologist treat?
The doctors at Cross Roads have over 15 years of experience treating simple and more complex gynecologic issues, including:
- Infertility consultation and treatment
- Pelvic pain
- Vaginal infections
- Cervical dysplasia/abnormal Pap smear
- Sexual dysfunction
- Pelvic organ prolapse
To best diagnose and treat your health concerns, the doctors perform complete gynecologic testing. This may include a physical exam, a biopsy, blood work, an ultrasound, or a body composition analysis.
Based on their findings, the doctors will diagnose your condition and offer appropriate treatment options that meet your needs.
What types of gynecology services are available?
The doctors at Cross Roads Hormonal Health & Wellness offer many birth control options, including natural family planning, oral contraceptives, non-hormonal and hormonal implants, and Essure®, a non-surgical form of permanent pregnancy prevention.
Non-surgical treatments at Cross Roads involve specific medications and therapies to alleviate your symptoms and allow your body to function normally.
These treatments include bio-identical hormone replacement to relieve menopause symptoms, osteoporosis management, and treatment of urinary incontinence to avoid embarrassing accidents.
For more complex conditions — like heavy periods, endometriosis, and pelvic organ prolapse — the doctors at Cross Roads Hormonal Health & Wellness perform several in-office procedures.
The doctors have training in advanced laparoscopic surgery, so you can receive treatment and go home the same day. Laparoscopic surgery is less invasive and will allow you to recover in less time than an open surgery.
If you suffer from heavy periods, the team offers NovaSure® ablation; this treatment reduces heavy periods in premenopausal women. Other ablation options can spare your fertility if you wish to have a baby in the future.
Gynecologic care is crucial for all women, and treatment options are available at Cross Roads Hormonal Health & Wellness. Call or schedule a consultation online today to learn your options.
