Understanding Gynecological Conditions
From puberty to menopause, a woman’s reproductive system is constantly changing. As a result, there are some women who face certain issues along the way. These problems may range from minor and temporary issues such as ovarian cysts or more chronic conditions such as endometriosis that require long-term care.
Our gynecological team here at Serenity Gynecology & Functional Medicine can provide you with the quality, comprehensive and understanding gynecological care you are looking for to address any issues you are dealing with.
Types of Gynecological Conditions
To understand how we can help it’s important to recognize the most common types of gynecological conditions and symptoms we treat,
- Pelvic pain
- Ovarian cysts
- Uterine fibroids
- Menstrual disorders
- Urinary tract infection
- Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
- Vaginal skin disorders
- Post-menopausal issues
- Pelvic floor disorders
- Pre-cancerous lesions
- Sexually transmitted diseases
While every woman should visit a gynecologist once a year for their annual checkup it’s also important to visit a gynecologist if you are experiencing symptoms such as vaginal bleeding, discharge, sores or lumps, pelvic pain, pain with urination or discomfort with intercourse. Recognizing these symptoms early on will increase the chances of successful treatment.
Treating Gynecological Problems
The treatment plan that we create for you will depend on the condition we are treating. Some problems such as ovarian cysts may go away on their own without intervention while other conditions such as endometriosis or polycystic ovarian syndrome may require certain therapies or medications such as hormonal contraceptives. During your appointment, we will walk you through the entire treatment process so you understand all therapies and medications that are recommended to you.
Just as our name suggests, we also focus on functional medicine, which specializes in treating the patient as a whole system rather than just targeting the reproductive system or other systems that are affected. We will address the underlying cause of disease and based on certain factors such as your genetics, biochemistry, overall health and lifestyle we can create a treatment plan that will target the cause of your condition. After all, there are many gynecological conditions that are the result of other diseases or dysfunctions within the body. It is our job to pinpoint the cause and then help you manage the symptoms.
