A woman requires gynecological care in all phases of her life, from adolescence to menopause, in order to maintain good health. A Greenwich gynecologist offers various specialties in addition to routine gynecological care and contraception counseling. A variety of medical and cosmetic services that our gynecologists offer will help anyone who is experiencing any gynecological issues.
The inability to conceive or maintain a pregnancy can be a confusing experience. Getting to the root of the problem may eventually result in a successful pregnancy and a healthy baby. Someone should consider infertility evaluation if any of these factors apply:
Infertility evaluations consist of urine, thyroid, prolactin, and progesterone tests, along with tracking of the basal body temperature to determine whether ovulation is occurring. Other procedures may include ultrasounds, laparoscopy, or hysteroscopy to view the reproductive organs and ascertain their health. Male partners may have a semen analysis to establish the sperm count. In many cases, minimally invasive surgery done by an experienced gynecologist in Greenwich may resolve the issue of infertility and allow women to achieve pregnancy.
Many women do not realize when they have a sexually transmitted disease (STD), as such diseases do not produce obvious symptoms in females. For that reason, it is wise for sexually active women to schedule regular testing. If an STD is not discovered and treated, the consequences may be permanent and irreversible.
Besides infertility, untreated STDs can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease. A woman can unknowingly spread these diseases to her partners. Someone should visit a gynecologist in Greenwich if they experience any of the following symptoms:
The most common STDs found in women include Chlamydia, genital herpes, gonorrhea, human papillomavirus (HPV), HIV/AIDS, and syphilis. A vaccine for HPV is available. However, it does not treat existing HPV infections.
Some STDs respond to antibiotic therapy, while others are incurable but manageable. Depending on the type of STD, both the woman and her partner could require treatment.
Along with gynecological services, Greenwich gynecologists also provide urinary incontinence evaluation and treatment. In women, urinary and bladder issues are often related to other conditions in the pelvic area. For example, they perform vaginal repairs in the case of fallen bladders.
Pregnancy and childbirth can cause issues with urinary incontinence, and the problem also arises as women age. For many women, urinary problems become the bane of their existence. There are different types of urinary incontinence, including:
Based on the diagnosis, treatment may include nutritional supplements and herbal therapies – part of our integrative health care program – medication or surgical solutions.
