Women have amazing, wonderful, yet complicated bodies. So much can “go right” when we take the time to know as much as possible about our bodies and how they work. It’s important for all women of all ages to develop an open relationship with their gynecologist, guaranteeing that any health issues can be comfortably discussed. Let’s face it, sometimes things can go a bit wrong and having a strong relationship with your gynecologist means you’ll get the best state-of-the-art solution to any issue you may be experiencing. You owe it to yourself to be pro-active with your health.
Being a Well Woman
Well women make a point to visit their gynecologist annually. This annual checkup covers a gamut of services to ensure that your health is at its best. Tests such as STD, bone density, and pap smears are common. In addition, this may be the time to discuss birth control options or dependent upon your age, perhaps a discussion about menopause.
Gynecologic services range from annual pap smears and cancer screenings, to endometriosis and
hormone therapy, and much more. Dr. Vahora is also one of the few doctors in the area offering
pre-cancer screenings, also known as genetic testing. The list of services goes on to include periand
premenopausal issues as well as investigative services to determine if any alternatives to
surgery or hormones are the solution.
There are a multitude of services your gynecologist can offer. Including:
- Hormone Therapy – Bioidentical hormones, systemic, local therapy and non-hormonal options
- Prolapse – a condition when structures (uterus, rectum, bladder, etc.) fall out of position.
- Pelvic Pain
- Fibroids – Growths (benign tumors) that develop on the reproductive organs and tissues.
- Dyspareunia (pain with intimacy)
- Sexual Health
- Genetic Testing
Knowledge of your own body should be every woman’s goal. And an important part of your body knowledge is the result of an open honest relationship with a compassionate gynecologist. Dr. Parveen S. Vahora fits that bill to a tee. She is a board-certified, fellowship-trained gynecologist offering general gynecologic specialist services. Dr. Vahora takes the time to get to know her patients on a personal level. This ensures a comfortable atmosphere between doctor and patient.
