A yearly health exam conducted by Dr. Emma will typically include an(n):
At a "Well Woman" exam, patients will also have the opportunity to discuss health concerns with Dr. Emma and inquire about birth control if desired.
Some problems are found following a pap smear, and if this is the case, Dr. Emma can suggest an array of treatments and options. More intensive treatments will typically begin that same day and treatments could be a continuous process. However, this is not always true; treatment could be as simple as a prescription. If the results reveal a concern, Dr. Emma will go over them thoroughly and discuss any treatments required with each patient. It is important to remember that abnormal results do not always mean there is a serious problem, so patients should not overly worry.
Oral contraceptives, or birth control pills, are used by women to stop a pregnancy from occurring. Progestin and estrogen, hormones produced in the body, are the primary ingredients in oral contraceptives. These hormones prevent the ovulation and alter the uterine lining, called the endometrium. They also change the mucus at the cervix to stop the entrance of sperm. Birth control pills can also be utilized by Dr. Emma to help patients who are dealing with abnormal or painful menstrual periods, a condition referred to as premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). They have even been shown to improve hormone-related acne.
An intrauterine device (IUD) is a soft, plastic tool inserted into the uterus to prevent pregnancy. IUDs usually work by either releasing a small amount of progestin levonorgestrel into the bloodstream or a copper coil has been placed around the stem which acts as a spermicide.
