The VFemina doctors, all of whom are board certified OB/GYNS offer a variety of other services for their patients including:
There is finally help available for premenopausal women who suffer from low libido or a persistent lack of sexual desire. After more than 16 years of hearing about the life-improving benefits of Viagra, the number one prescribed pill for male sexual dysfunction, women now have an FDA approved option of their own. Known as the little pink pill, and often called “female Viagra”, the women-only libido drug Addyi, was recently approved by the FDA, and has hit the market as the first prescription medication that targets female sexual dysfunction. Ask your VFemina doctor if Addyi is right for you.
Labiaplasty also referred to as labioplasty, or aesthetic vaginal surgery, is a surgical procedure that will reduce and/or reshape the labia minora - the skin that covers the female clitoris and vaginal opening. In some instances, women with large labia can experience pain during intercourse, or feel discomfort during everyday activities or when wearing tight-fitting clothing. Others may feel unattractive, or wish to enhance their sexual experiences by removing some of the skin that covers the clitoris. The purpose of a labiaplasty is to better define the inner labia. During this procedure the urethral opening can be redefined, and if necessary improvements to the vagina may be made. The problem can be caused by genetics, sexual intercourse or difficulties in childbirth. For more detailed information, please speak to one of our VFemina doctors.
The Essure Birth Control System is a prescription only, non-hormonal form of permanent birth control for women sold by Bayer. Insertion of Essure is intended to be nonreversible and is an alternative to female sterilization procedures such as tying tubes (tubal ligation). The system consists of two flexible coils made of stainless steel, Nickel titanium and polyethylene fibers that doctors insert into the fallopian tubes. About 750,000 women have used Essure to prevent pregnancy. If you would like to learn more about Essure, please speak with one of our VFemina board certified OB/GYNs.
The VFemina team offers well woman exams including routine pap smears, which screen for cervical cancer. A Pap test checks the cervix for abnormal cell changes. The cervix is the lower part of the uterus (womb), which opens into the vagina. Cell changes can develop on the cervix that, if not found and treated, can lead to cervical cancer. Cervical cancer can almost always be prevented, and having regular Pap tests is the key. To learn more, please speak with one of our VFemina doctors.
The Novasure Ablation is a proven treatment for a heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding, also known as menorrhagia. Menorrhagia affects 10 million women in the U.S. physically, socially, and emotionally. If you are suffering from heavy periods, a Novasure endometrial ablation is a great, non-hormonal solution. With a one-time in-office procedure, an ablation can lighten or even eliminate your period. NO pills and NO hormonal side effects. In just 90-seconds, your endometrial lining is permanently altered and your life is more carefree. Although an endometrial ablation will alter the endometrial lining of the uterus, it leaves the ovaries and fallopian tubes unchanged. Your VFemina doctor will help determine if endometrial ablation is the right treatment option for you.
