Lawrence OB-GYN Specialists offers complete gynecological care for women of all ages. Our gynecology services include:
We typically recommend a first OB-GYN visit around age 13-15. A pelvic exam may or may not be included depending on the individual's circumstances. We recognize that a teenager's first visit is the beginning of a life-long relationship with OB-GYN care, so we strive to make these first encounters very positive for our young patients.
Menstrual Irregularities Management and Care
Not all women have regular periods, and not all irregularities are cause for concern. At Lawrence OB-GYN Specialists, we can help determine the source of your menstrual irregularities and provide appropriate treatment options.
Endometriosis Diagnosis and Care
A condition faced by some women during their childbearing years, endometriosis can cause pain, abnormal bleeding and fertility problems. We offer a variety of treatment options to help. Diagnostic and treatment procedures can include sonography, hysteroscopy, endometrial resection and possibly hysterectomy (via minimally invasive laparoscopic or robotically assisted surgery).
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) can have serious effects on a woman's health and fertility. Because they are contagious and often present no noticeable symptoms, they are also a public health concern. For that reason, we can offer testing for common STDs as part of the routine pelvic exam.
You have many choices when it comes to birth control, and each type of contraception has its own pros and cons. We encourage you to ask questions and discuss your options with your OB-GYN provider.
If you are seeking a permanent birth control solution, we can help. In addition to sterilization-tubal ligation, we also offer Essure® and Adiana®, two minimally-invasive options. Both are non-surgical, hormone-free permanent birth control procedures in which soft, flexible inserts are placed in each fallopian tube (no incisions) to stimulate safe tissue growth that forms a natural barrier and prevents sperm from reaching your eggs.
Basic Infertility Testing
Getting pregnant is not always easy. If you have been unable to conceive, ask your OB-GYN provider for more information and guidance. This may include basic infertility testing to see if there is a treatable condition causing your inability to get pregnant.
Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding Diagnosis and Care
For women who have problems related to their menstrual cycles, we offer treatment options ranging from hormone therapy to surgery.
For women dealing with menopause, we provide a range of prescription and non-prescription treatment options to relieve symptoms and help with other common issues at this stage in life. One option is hormone replacement therapy (HRT), which has been shown to reduce symptoms and alleviate challenges for some women. There are other options for hormone replacement, such as bioidentical hormones. There are certain risks associated with HRT, however, so it's important to ask your OB-GYN provider if HRT is right for you.
While most symptoms and problems subside after menopause, some women continue to face certain effects and risks from reduced estrogen levels. These can include emotional changes, decreased bone density and more. Our OB-GYN care team is here to help guide you through the challenges this stage of your life can bring.
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Treatment
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a common women's health issue with unpleasant symptoms that can lead to more serious conditions if left untreated. Our providers offer a range of options to help women with PCOS.
Urinary Incontinence Diagnosis and Management
We also offer a range of treatment options for women experiencing incontinence (bladder control problems). If surgery is needed, your skilled OB-GYN physician may perform the procedure in the state-of-the-art surgical suites at Lawrence Memorial Hospital.
Pelvic Pain Diagnosis and Care
Chronic pelvic pain in women can be caused by a variety of conditions. If you are experiencing mild to severe pelvic pain lasting more than six months, there are many options to find the source and alleviate your pain.
