Women’s Wellness Q & A
What is a well-woman exam?
Your annual well-woman exam is your opportunity to receive the essential health screenings you need, as well as to discuss any changes or concerns you have about your reproductive health. A pelvic exam is part of the process, and a Pap smear is also a common part of these exams.
This is also your opportunity to discuss anything that concerns you about your health and wellness. If you’re experiencing troubling side effects from your birth control, concerned about fertility, or wondering if you’re entering the menopause process, Dr. Levine can help you find answers and solutions.
DIscussing your sexual health is also an important part of your annual exam. If there are aspects of your sex life that aren’t bringing you joy or fulfillment, share your concerns with Dr. Levine. There are treatments that can help.
What is vaginal revitalization?
Vaginal revitalization involves using energy-based treatments to enhance vaginal function. Many women find that childbirth, age, or various gynecologic conditions alter their vaginal tissue, making sex less enjoyable.
Not only do the tissues that make up your vaginal walls thin over time, but childbirth can also stretch and tear those tissues. The end result can be decreased friction and lubrication, both of which can make sex uncomfortable.
Vaginal revitalization works by delivering carefully controlled heat to the deeper tissue layers of your vaginal walls. That prompts your body to create new collagen and other cells, thickening vaginal walls and restoring proper vaginal lubrication.
What are some other women’s wellness concerns?
Many women experience shifts and changes in their sexual health over time. Having the guidance of a trusted women’s health specialist can go a long way toward relieving stress and finding solutions.
Some of the issues Dr. Levine can help you address include:
- Low sex drive
- Hormonal shifts during and after pregnancy
- Menopause symptoms
- Fertility concerns
- Screening and prevention of sexually transmitted disease
- Birth control options
The best thing you can do to enhance wellness is to share your concerns with a trusted gynecologist and explore available treatment paths. If you ever require additional services like counseling or weight management, Dr. Levine can help you find a good match for those needs.
If you’re overdue for a well-woman exam, or have questions or concerns about wellness, schedule a visit with Dr. Levine today, online or by phone.
