Gynecology Services

Regular visits with a gynecologist can help you lead a long and healthy life. Gynecology is an area of medicine devoted to the special healthcare needs of women, caring for the parts of your body responsible for your sexual and reproductive health.

Healthcare for Women

Women are often so busy taking care of others that they don’t make time to care for themselves. At PIH Health, your health and wellness is our top priority. Your gynecologist will provide supportive and sensitive care at every stage of your life, from teenage years through pregnancy, menopause and beyond.

Turn to our team for preventative care and diagnostic services, including:

  • Pelvic exams and PAP tests
  • Gardasil® immunizations to protect against HPV (a virus that can cause cervical and other cancers)
  • Mammograms, backed by the full range of services at the Breast Health Center
  • Bone health screenings for osteoporosis

Family Planning Services

Our experts offer family planning and birth control—from guidance about natural methods to birth control pills and other hormonal methods, IUDs and tubal ligation. When you’re ready to have a baby, our pregnancy and birth services will care for your every need.

If you’re trying to become pregnant without success, we can help diagnose the cause and, if needed, provide infertility treatment. Genetic counseling is also available.

Conditions We Treat

You can expect skilled and compassionate care for a variety of conditions, including:

  • Abnormal periods and heavy bleeding
  • Endometriosis
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Pelvic or vaginal pain
  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • Incontinence (trouble controlling your bladder or bowels)
  • Pelvic floor disorders/prolapse
  • Fibroids of the uterus
  • Breast cancer and other cancers of the reproductive system

Whenever possible, we offer tests and treatments that are least invasive to the body, meaning they access the organs through natural body openings or very small incisions. Examples include laser treatments, hysteroscopy and laparoscopy for removal of fibroids and laparoscopic hysterectomy.

Having Menopause Symptoms?

Menopause—often called “the change of life”—can be both liberating and challenging. Our gynecologists can help you manage the symptoms of menopause and provide guidance about hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and alternative therapies. You’ll also find support through classes, programs and community lectures that address midlife changes.

Check our online calendar for classes and events of special interest to women.

Turn to our online Health Library for insights and information on your sexual and reproductive organ health.
