Women’s Healthcare Center for GYN Conditions

Diagnosing a gynecological problem is the first step toward helping you find relief from your symptoms. We use the latest technology and diagnostic methods to accurately identify the cause of your symptoms, so we can find the right treatment for conditions like:

  • Pelvic Pain
  • Heavy Menstruation
  • Irregular Periods
  • PCOS
  • Endometriosis
  • Infertility
  • Vaginal Infections
  • Urinary Incontinence
  • Pelvic Prolapse

We utilize Endosee, a state-of-the-art imaging technology, and Minerva(opens in a new tab) to help us accurately evaluate abnormal uterine bleeding. It’s non-invasive and does not use radiation, making it much less risky than other imaging techniques such as CT scans or MRIs. 

Here's how an endometrial biopsy at Advanced Women's Care works:

  • You lie on an exam table with your knees bent, like a Pap test.
  • A speculum is inserted into your vagina to hold it open as it is during a pelvic exam.
  • A small tube is passed through your cervix into your uterus (it is normal to feel cramping).
  • Your doctor takes a tiny sample of the uterine lining, removes the tube and speculum, and the sample is sent to the lab.

After the procedure, you may still feel some mild cramping. This can often be relieved with over-the-counter pain medications. You may have some bleeding for a few days. You can wear a pad, but don't use a tampon unless your doctor says it's okay. You may also be told not to have sex for one to two days.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is minimally-invasive surgery? Why is it better?

Minimally invasive surgery is a type of procedure that uses smaller incisions and specialized instruments to reduce recovery time and post-operative pain. Compared to traditional open surgery, minimally invasive surgery can result in less scarring and faster healing. Additionally, the smaller incisions used with minimally invasive surgery help reduce the risk of infection.

Do I need to see a women’s health specialist? What are the reasons to see a gynecologist?

It’s important to make an appointment with your gynecologist if you experience any concerning symptoms such as pain in the lower abdomen, abnormal vaginal bleeding, or other unusual discharge. It’s best to be proactive and get checked out by a doctor if you are unsure about whether or not your symptoms are cause for concern.
