At Dragonfly Primary Care, we offer comprehensive gynecological services for women of all ages. Our goal is to promote gynecological health and well-being through preventive care, education, early detection, and treatment of gynecological conditions.
We provide a wide range of gynecological services, including:
Breast exams are a crucial part of preventive healthcare for women. During a breast exam, a healthcare professional will palpate the breast tissue to feel for any unusual lumps or masses. Breast exams can be performed in a clinical setting, or they can be self-performed at home. Breast exams are an important way to detect breast cancer early, when it is most treatable. Although breast cancer is typically more common in older women, all women should be performing breast exams on a regular basis. Breast exams are quick, easy, and can be done in the comfort of your own home.
Gynecological exams are an important part of women's healthcare and are designed to help identify any potential issues or conditions affecting the female reproductive system. These exams typically involve a healthcare provider physically examining a woman's external genitals, as well as performing an internal exam to visualize the internal anatomy.
This allows for the collection of important diagnostic information about a woman's health, including changes in vaginal discharge or cervical mucus, cervical abnormalities, menstrual irregularities, and pelvic pain.
Thanks to these exams and the valuable information they provide, women can take steps to protect their reproductive health and ensure that all aspects of their gynecological systems are functioning properly.
Hormone levels in the blood can provide important information about a person's health. By testing for hormone levels, imbalances can be detected early and corrective measures can be taken. Hormone levels can also be monitored over time to evaluate the effectiveness of treatments. Blood tests for hormone levels are generally safe and reliable.
Hormone levels can vary depending on a variety of factors, including age, weight, stress levels, and medications. Therefore, it is important to work with a healthcare provider to interpret the results of blood tests for hormone levels.
STI testing is an incredibly important part of women's healthcare as it enables the detection of infections before they have a chance to cause serious health problems. For this reason, all women should make STI testing a regular part of their routine check-ups with their providers.
At these appointments, your provider will perform a pelvic exam to look for any obvious signs of infection in the reproductive organs. They will also typically test your blood or urine for STIs that may not be visible during an exam.
If STI testing does come back positive for an infection, don't panic – many STIs are easily treatable with antibiotics or other medications. It's important to remember that having an STI doesn't necessarily mean your sexual health is compromised or that you are at a higher risk of contracting additional infections in the future.
By regularly getting tested, you can rest assured that any potential STI is caught early and taken care of quickly.
Sexual dysfunction refers to a problem that arises during any phase of the sexual response cycle, preventing a woman from experiencing sexual satisfaction. In women, the most common types of sexual dysfunction are low libido, difficulty becoming aroused, and difficulty reaching orgasm. Many factors can contribute to sexual dysfunction, including:
- Hormonal Imbalances
Although it can be a difficult topic to discuss, seeking treatment for sexual dysfunction is important. With the help of our qualified healthcare providers, many women are able to find relief from their symptoms and enjoy a healthy and fulfilling sex life.
