Gynecology Q & A

What conditions does gynecology treat?

Abnormal bleeding and ovarian cysts are among the most common gynecologic problems women face in their childbearing years. The experienced board-certified gynecologists at OBGYN CARE provide minimally invasive treatments to correct gynecologic conditions of all kinds. 

They may recommend da VinciⓇ robotic surgery to treat:

  • Uterine fibroids
  • Endometriosis
  • Chronic pelvic pain
  • Pelvic prolapse
  • Incontinence

Robotic surgery also can help diagnose the cause of abnormal bleeding and provide treatment.

What are fibroids?

Uterine fibroids are growths in or on your uterus, which in most cases aren't cancerous. Fibroids come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Although many fibroids cause no symptoms, when they do produce symptoms, you may experience:

  • Bleeding between periods
  • Painful, heavy periods
  • Pelvic pain or pressure
  • Backache
  • Frequent urination
  • Painful sex

If you're experiencing any of these symptoms, see an OBGYN CARE doctor for appropriate diagnosis and gynecologic care.

What is endometriosis?

Your endometrium tissue lines your uterus. Endometriosis occurs when your endometrium grows outside of your uterus. 

Endometriosis is often painful and causes heavy bleeding and cramping. It's also a common reason for infertility. If you suspect you have endometriosis, OBGYN CARE provides treatment for your condition.

What are ovarian cysts?

Cysts are fluid-filled growths on your ovaries that may come and go without causing issues or become problematic. These growths are very common during your reproductive years, and you typically don’t know you have an ovarian cyst until it becomes large and painful. Depending on your situation, the doctors at OBGYN CARE may suggest monitoring your cyst for a few months or recommend minimally invasive treatment to remove it.

What is pelvic organ prolapse?

Pelvic organ prolapse is a gynecologic condition that occurs when the support structure for your pelvic organs — your uterus, rectum, and bladder — becomes loose or weak. As a result, your organ drops out of its proper position. 

You may have pelvic organ prolapse if you experience feelings of pressure in your pelvis, you notice a bulge in your vagina, or you're incontinent. If you're experiencing any of these symptoms, contact OBGYN CARE for appropriate gynecologic care for pelvic organ prolapse.
