Good health begins with regular exams, health screening and smart lifestyle choices. At LowCountry Women's Specialists, our specialty is ensuring good gynecologic health throughout your life - from adolescence through post-menopause.
Well-woman exams are an essential part of maintaining long-term health and preventing illness before it occurs. Routine exams and screenings are typically once a year, depending on your age, health history, lifestyle, and other important issues. You and your health care provider can determine how often you need to be examined and screened for certain diseases and conditions. Each visit includes a full medical history, physical exam (general, breast and pelvic), and discussion of health maintenance strategies.
In the past, common options were to wait until menopause or have a hysterectomy. Now we can offer a non-surgical option for pre-menopausal women who no longer want to get pregnant. During ablation, all or most of the tissue responsible for menstrual bleeding is destroyed. After the procedure, patients may never bleed again, or if they do, their bleeding is generally reduced.
