Tonya suffered for years with fibroids and adenomyosis, and progressively got worse until she had a DualPortGYN minimally invasive hysterectomy with Dr. Paul MacKoul, MD at The Center for Innovative GYN Care.
“I knew I had fibroids. In 2009, I had to started taking iron pills. The results of my physical then showed that I was extremely anemic. For over 2 years, my cycle was getting heavier and heavier. I started passing clots, and those were starting to get larger and larger, to the point I thought I was having a baby. My cycles were always long, they were always 7 days, but then they would linger for an additional 3-4 days.”
Tonya’s menstrual cycle started taking over her life. After a DualPortGYN hysterectomy, everything changed.
“I got my life back. I don’t have to plan my life around my cycle anymore.”Learn More
In July 2015, Marlivia discovered she had fibroids.
“It was totally vanity. I was eating right, I was exercising, I was really doing all the right things. At the time I was 35, and I worked out pretty consistently. I still wasn’t losing my stomach which didn’t make any sense. I would have these heavy periods and I just thought that was normal. I would be nauseous sometimes, right around my cycle. I just attributed it to regular PMS.”Learn More
The overall confusion about how the human body works, medical advancements for treatment of gynecological conditions, and lifestyle factors that have many women delaying having children can all lead to complications that can throw a wrench in a woman’s reproductive health. In the August story on WTOP, we review the gaps in women’s knowledge about their GYN health, and shine a spotlight on our advanced surgical methods that make delaying treatment unnecessary.
DELAYING TREATMENT FOR COMMON GYN CONDITIONS PUTS WOMEN’S REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH AT RISK
In the United States, more than half of women are unclear about GYN conditions and the surgical procedures to treat them, leaving many women at the mercy of misinformation, and out-of-date practices that can actually worsen conditions.Learn More
Adrienne is an extremely active woman who is up early every day to work with her clients starting at 5 or 5:30 AM, and her last client may be 8:00 PM. She also teaches her children in homeschool. Her active lifestyle was compromised by fibroids and a hernia.
“You start to live your life around your symptoms,” said Adrienne. “Three other doctors told me to just accept them. I knew that the quality of my life had changed for the worst, based on my lifestyle and the things I wanted to do.”
Selecting the right treatment for fibroids can be overwhelming. Like Adrienne, many women in their 20s and 30s who want to maintain fertility are often told that hysterectomy is their only option. It is often the case that the limitation is with the surgeon performing the procedure.
“One night I was up late, and was searching and found The Center for Innovative GYN Care. I was so happy, and teared up. This was a miracle. This was everything I had been looking for. I read about their philosophy, the procedures, and the patient stories.”
Adrienne booked a consultation right away.Learn More
