Fed up of Heavy Bleeding?

Each month during a woman’s period (menses), the inner lining (endometrium) of the uterus is shed.  This varies from light and occasional to extremely heavy with significant cramping and discomfort.   There are many options to deal with controlling heavy bleeding.

For women who have completed their childbearing, one effective approach is to perform an endometrial ablation.  This is an incision-less, quick, outpatient procedure whereby the inner lining (endometrium) of the uterus is destroyed.   One of the most popular methods of accomplishing this is the Novasure endometrial ablation.  All of our physicians currently perform this popular service in our office.   Call today to discuss whether you are a candidate for this procedure.

Done with having kids?

After having completed childbearing, many women wonder what their options are regarding birth control. Not everyone remembers to take the Pill everyday. The good news is, Women’s Health of Augusta has several options that could be a great fit for you. If you desire permanent sterilization, consider the Adiana procedure. This is an incisionless in-office procedure to block your fallopian tubes. With the help of intravenous medications, the procedure takes only about twenty minutes and is virtually painless. Keep in mind, this procedure is permanent and irreversible. Call our office today to find out more information. If you have questions regarding insurance coverage for this procedure, our helpful staff will be more than happy to assist you.

Urinary Incontinence concerns?

The loss of bladder control is a very common problem.  It tends to worsen after child birth or as we get older.  The severity can range from occasional loss of urine during activity (such as coughing or running) to incontinence while at rest.  Other bladder symptoms such as urgency and frequency can further complicate the treatment of bladder control.

If urinary symptoms affect your daily activities or prevent you from engaging in certain activities, then contact your doctor.  In some cases, simple lifestyle changes and pelvic floor exercises can make a difference.  Other patients may be candidates for surgery such as a Vaginal Sling, which is performed by all our providers.   These are minimally invasive outpatient procedures that typically last less than half an hour and provide a supportive hammock under the urethra, preventing it from opening prematurely when you cough or sneeze etc.

If you or someone you know is having bothersome incontinence, schedule an appointment to discuss options with your doctor.
