Our offices are all equipped with ultrasound to facilitate diagnosis of reproductive system problems. We offer and educate you about a wide range of contraceptive options to suit your life, so that you can choose which is best for you.
Annual Exam – Yearly exam consisting of a breast exam, internal and external exam of the vagina, and an examination of the other reproductive organs. This is normally given in conjunction with a Pap Smear. A birth control consultation and prescription can also be included.
Pelvic Exam – An examination of your internal organs: uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries.
Breast Exam – An examination of the breast tissue to check for any abnormalities or lumps. You will also be taught how to perform a breast self-exam.
Pap Smear – A safe, simple, quick internal procedure, consisting of collecting a sample of cells from the cervix and examining for any abnormalities. You should have a pap smear at least once a year as early-detection screening for cervical cancer.

Diaphragm – A diaphragm is a latex barrier that is a soft, shallow dome that covers the cervix. It is used in conjunction with spermicidal jelly, foam, or cream. A physician or nurse practitioner will fit you for the right sized diaphragm.
Mirena® Intrauterine System (IUS) – The IUS is a long-term form of contraception consisting of a small device that is inserted in the uterus. It releases hormones directly onto the endometrium to prevent pregnancy and reduce menstrual bleeding for up to five years.
