A full evaluation, including vital signs (pulse, Blood Pressure, etc.), pelvic exam, Pap Smear, breast exam, and laboratory testing, is done. This is the time for a full baseline exam. The object is to prevent future disease before it becomes a problem.
For example, on your pap smear or with Colposcopy we can pick up abnormal cells (dysplasia) that are easy to treat with cryosurgery before they develop into cervical dysplasia or cancer.
We can screen for a host of other medical problems with our Physical exam and our laboratory testing so that we can catch irregularities before they present a problem. We can make sure that your vaccinations are up to date.
In sum, we can catch disease or potential disease before it becomes a problem.
At this exam, we will also address any present concerns that you might have like, for example, Birth control, itching, pain etc. and treat them appropriately. We can also begin treatment on any of the other gynecologic, urinary or cosmetic issues that you would like us to deal with.
There are numerous methods of Birth Control including BCP (Birth Control Pills), IUD’s, Diaphragms, foams, and permanent sterility (tubal ligation etc.)

What an inconvenience!! This is a common issue in women because, as opposed to men, they have a very short urethra. Just a little weakness in the pelvic floor (muscular support) can cause the problem. Symptoms can be treated with medication, exercises and surgery.
Uncomfortable moments can be mitigated with pads of various ability to absorb. But Urinary Incontinence usually requires surgical intervention to be fixed or at least improved.
