Gynecology Q & A

What happens during a gynecology check-up?

During an annual gynecology check-up, Dr. Lori evaluates your overall female health and wellness. This visit usually includes a pelvic exam and clinical breast exam and may include other tests like a Pap smear.

Dr. Lori needs your input to give you the best care, so she asks questions about a variety of topics including:

  • Menstrual period frequency and duration
  • Symptoms before and during your period
  • Sexual partners
  • Birth control
  • Symptoms during sex
  • Pregnancy plans
  • Hormone changes

How often do you need a Pap smear?

Pap smears are critical for monitoring female health because they identify early signs of cervical cancer.

Starting at age 21, you should have a Pap smear every three years until age 65. After that, you may be able to discontinue Pap smears if your last few tests were clear. Dr. Lori lets you know when it's safe to stop having Pap smears.

What are the most common gynecology problems?

Dr. Lori provides compassionate, expert care for women diagnosed with a wide range of female health issues.

Fibroids

Fibroids occur in most women and often resolve on their own. If you require treatment, fibroids respond to either medication or minimally invasive surgery.

PCOS

PCOS affects mainly young women and can cause problems like irregular periods and weight gain. Treatments vary from lifestyle changes to hormone therapy.

Endometriosis

The pain from endometriosis can range from extreme to unnoticeable, and treatment varies from medication to minimally invasive surgery. In some cases, hysterectomy is the best solution for endometriosis, but only if you’re finished having children.

Vaginal dryness

Vaginal dryness is a common symptom of menopause. Dr. Lori treats this condition with noninvasive TempSure™ laser therapy.

Vaginal atrophy

Vaginal atrophy can be embarrassing, frustrating, and occur at any age. Dr. Lori often resolves this condition with TempSure Vitalia laser therapy.

Urinary incontinence

Urinary incontinence is most common in women and can be especially common after pregnancy and with age. TempSure Vitalia laser therapy can resolve urinary incontinence without surgery.

Do I need a hysterectomy?

A hysterectomy means surgical removal of your uterus and the end of fertility. When you’ve decided you’re finished having children, Dr. Lori might recommend a hysterectomy if other treatments for health problems like endometriosis haven’t worked for you.
