Gynecology

At Women Partners we offer comprehensive gynecological care for females from the age of adolescence through post-menopause.

Annual Exams

The American College of OB/GYN recommends that sexually active females and all females over the age of 18 have a well woman exam each year. Yearly pelvic exams are important in monitoring your gynecologic health and screening for infection, inflammation or other abnormal cells that may indicate disease.

During the exam, the doctor will examine your breasts and pelvic organs for any abnormalities or changes. The Pap smear consists of removing some tissue from the cervix for the pathologist to examine. An annual exam is one of the most important steps you can take in preventing disorders of the pelvic organs including cervical and ovarian cancer.

Contraception Counseling and Management

Deciding on the best form of contraception is an individual decision between the patient and her health care provider.

Our providers are happy to discuss the following forms of birth control:
  • Diaphragm
  • Depo-provera - Injectable progesterone hormone injection given every three months
  • Implantable device
  • Permanent birth contral through minimally invasive in-office surgery
  • Oral contraceptives
  • Intrauterine device (IUD) - Provides birth control for 5 to 10 years following placement
  • Nuva Ring - Vaginal contraceptive
  • Tubaligation
