The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology recommends that average risk women begin mammograms at age 40. Your care team at MyMenopauseRx will review your family history and determine if your breast cancer screening should begin earlier. If there’s a strong family history of breast cancer, the recommendation is to start mammograms roughly 10 years prior to the age the immediate relative had breast cancer.

Cervical cancer screening begins at age 21 with a PAP smear. A PAP smear looks for pre-cancer cells on the cervix. A HPV (human papillomavirus) test looks for the HPV virus that can cause cell changes on the cervix. Your care team follows the pap smear guidelines published by the American Society for Colposcopy and cervical Pathology (ASCCP).

conditions we treat

When your doctor tells you that your PAP test was abnormal, that means the test found some cells on your cervix that do not look normal. Remember, a pap smear is just a screening test. You will need additional testing to determine any follow up care needed.

Acne comes in many forms that occurs when your pores/hair follicles in your skin become clogged. Many women suffer from acne due to hormonal changes in their body. Acne even can reappear in perimenopause and menopause. Prescription medications help treat and prevent acne at all ages.

Feeling down, worried, nervous or uneasy can be related to hormonal changes in some women. Prescription medications are often recommended to help improve the way you feel.

Heavy menstrual bleeding, irregular periods or painful periods are treatable! If you need to change a tampon or pad after less than 2 hours or pass clots the size of a quarter, you have heavy bleeding. We believe no woman should have to live with the misery that accompanies untreated heavy, prolonged or irregular periods. Life is just too short.

Most women at any age are well intune with their bodies and know when they feel “off”. Hormones affect our sleep, energy, emotions, libido overall health and so much more. Assessing your hormonal state can help you reclaim your health.

Lichen sclerosus is a chronic immunological skin disorder that can occur at any age but is more common in postmenopausal women. It can cause irritated skin around the vulva (lips) where the skin becomes thin, wrinkled and sensitive. You might experience itching, painful intercourse, chaffing and small tears in the skin. Diagnosis is usually made with an in-office biopsy. If left untreated, 4% of women can develop vulvar cancer.

Menopause is the time of a woman’s life that marks the end of your menstrual cycle. It is diagnosed after you have gone 12 months without a period. The time leading up to menopause is called perimenopause and symptoms can begin in your late 30’s. The average age of menopause is 51. Menopause is a natural biologic process but you do not need to suffer from symtpoms. We have great natural FDA approved bioidentical treatments to improve your quality of life.

Many women have painful sex at some point in their lives. The pain can be present just prior, during and after sexual intercourse. There is a variety of causes of painful sex - both physical and psychological. Painful sex is common in menopause. Getting to the root of your underlying cause is the best way to treat painful sex.

Pelvic pain can arise from your digestive, reproductive or urinary system. Some chronic pelvic pain is even muscular in origin, arising from the muscles of the pelvic floor. If you are suffering from pelvic pain that disrupts your quality of life or seems to be worsening over time, you should seek evaluation. Any sudden and severe pain can be a medical emergency and you should seek prompt medical attention.

PMS is a common condition that affects a woman’s emotional, physical and behavioral health before or during her period. Common symptoms include mood swings, irritability, depression, breast tenderness, food cravings, and feeling tired. PMS is treatable so don’t suffer from your symptoms.

Once a woman is menopausal, any vaginal bleeding ( even just a tiny bit of spotting) is considered post menopause bleeding and needs to be evaluated. Post menopause bleeding can be due to many different causes but it is most important to make sure that is no pre-cancer or cancer cells in the uterus.

Most vaginal discharge is normal. It is our body’s way of self cleaning the vagina. If your vaginal discharge has an odor, seems excessive, or changed it’s color or consistency, you may have an infection. Seeking medical treatment is advised.

Vulvar itching is an uncomfort symptom that can often be casued by irrinating substances, infections, or menopause. Not all vulvar itching is “due to a yeast infection”. While over the counter treatments work great if you know what you are treating, we recommend a physical exam to get treatment right the first time.

Urinary frequency is the need to urinate more frequently during the day and night. If frequency is accompanied by painful urination, you may be suffering from an UTI (urinary tract infection). Urinary frequency can also be a sign of weak pelvic floor muscles, diabetes and a host of other conditions/diseases. We recommend you check with your doctor for additional testing.

Unwanted weight gain is frustrating at any age. Diet and decreased physician activity definitely play a role but there are other causes to consider. Common medical conditions associated with weight gain include underactive thyroid (hypothyroid), depression and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Poor sleep and stress also play a role. If you are perimenopausal/menopausal, symptoms due to your hormonal changes can also be to blame.

Perimenopause / Menopause

Hormonal changes often begin in your early 40s and can go unrecognized, making the menopause transition a confusing time in a woman’s life. Perimenopause/menopause symptoms vary from mild to severe. Just as each woman is unique, no woman’s menopause journey is the same. Here at MyMenopauseRx we believe no woman should have to suffer from menopause symptoms. Safe and effective treatments are available. Our doctors will create a treatment plan unique for you.

Menopause Care

Menopause increases our risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, anxiety, depression, and elevated cholesterol. A hormone health evaluation will provide you valuable education on your metabolic health to help you prevent chronic disease.

Hormone therapy is the most effective treatment for perimenopause/menopause vasomotor symptoms - hot flashes and night sweats, according to the North American Menopause Society. Hormone therapy is safe and effective for most women, prescribed only after a review of your personal medical history and family history. We offer FDA approved natural bioidentical hormone treatment options whenever possible.

Many women prefer to try herbal treatments to improve their menopause symptoms instead of taking prescription medications. Herbal products are not regulated in the United States as they are considered a dietary supplement. If you are interested in learning more about the herbal treatments we recommend based on the medical literature, let your provider know at your menopause visit.

Not all menopause treatment consists of writing a prescription. Making changes to your daily habits can often be effective to manage menopause symptoms. We will guide you on lifestyle recommendations that fit your personal routine and improve your quality of life.

GSM is a term that describes the genital, sexual and urianry symptoms that are associated with the physical changes of the vulva, vagina, and lower urinary tract due to a lack of estrogen in menopause.

We have excellent safe and effective treatment to offer you!

In Office Procedures

MyMenopauseRx strives to make your gynecologic experience as pleasant as possible. We respect your time and offer a host of procedures in the comfort of our office.

Procedures

Colposcopy is an office procedure used in the evaluation of an abnormal pap smear or cervical lesion. A speculum is placed in the vagina, and the physician uses a special microscope to examine the cervix and upper vagina. Tissue biopsy samples may be obtained at this time to guide further management.

Endometrial biopsy is a procedure used to obtain cells that line the cavity of the uterus (the endometrium). This test may be recommended in the evaluation of abnormal bleeding. A thin tube is inserted through the cervix into the uterus during a pelvic exam. A small amount of tissue is removed and sent to the pathologist for analysis. Some women experience mild cramping during the procedure.

Hysteroscopy is when a small telescope is inserted through the dilated cervix to allow the interior of the uterus to be directly visualized. This procedure is often recommended to determine the cause of abnormal uterine bleeding such as polyps, fibroids and other intrauterine masses. Hysteroscopy is recommended in the comfort of our office, avoiding the inconvenience and high costs associated with the operating room.

Ultrasound is an imaging technique performed in our office to examine the uterus, ovaries and surrounding tissues. A thin ultrasound probe is placed in the vagina and rotated in order to examine the pelvic structures. Our female ultrasound technician has over 15 years gynecologic imaging experience.

A vulvar biopsy is performed in the office to sample a tiny piece of tissue from the outside of the vagina. This procedure is recommended to determine the cause of a growth, rash or discoloration. The tissue sample is then sent to the pathologist who looks at the tissue under the microscope and reports a diagnosis. This procedure is also performed if you desire removal of a mole or wart that is bothersome or has not responded to other treatment.
