It’s the middle of January, and by now, the initial energy to get back to taking care of yourself may have lost a bit of it’s initial luster as the realities of life sink back into rhythm. It’s time to remind yourself of the goals you set for yourself before the clock struck midnight on New Year’s Eve.
Your GYN Health Affects Every Part Of Your Life
For many women, regaining health and energy includes taking care of their GYN health, too. Long standing conditions like endometriosis, fibroids, ovarian cysts, pelvic adhesions and other conditions often take a back seat to everything else, that is until they can no longer be ignored. Get ahead of the problem this year.
At The Center for Innovative GYN Care, we know how important it is to stay active, maintain a career, family, friendships, and minimize stress. We also know that a GYN condition that causes abnormal bleeding or pelvic pain can disrupt all of that.
The usual excuses include, “I don’t have time to take off for 6 weeks to recover from surgery,” or “My doctor says I can wait to treat my fibroids,” or “heavy bleeding is normal, I’ve gotten used to carrying extra tampons and pads with me.”
Get Back to Your Life Faster With Minimally Invasive GYN Surgery
Advanced minimally invasive GYN surgical treatments can help women recover in days, not weeks. The minimally invasive GYN surgical specialists Dr. Paul MacKoul, MD and Dr. Natalya Danilyants, MD developed the two procedures, DualPortGYN and LAAM that are exclusive to CIGC, in an effort to make patient outcomes more positive. The idea of less pain and faster recovery came out of seeing patients needlessly having open procedures, or more incisions with robotic or standard laparoscopic procedures, when advanced surgical techniques could make it possible to treat all GYN conditions with just 2 small incisions. Women return to their normal activity in 2 weeks or less, and many women are back to work after a week.
Watching & Waiting Does More Harm Than Good
Waiting to treat GYN conditions like fibroids can create more severe symptoms, like heavy or prolonged bleeding, severe pelvic pain, painful sex, and infertility or troublesome pregnancies. Waiting and watching is an outdated approach to managing fibroids.
Faster recovery means getting back to the things in your life that you had to put on hold, including going back to school, exercising regularly or playing a sport, traveling and many other important parts of life that make life more fulfilling.
You Should Not Have To Adjust Your Life to Your Monthly Cycle
Heavy bleeding, or bleeding for more than seven days is abnormal. Even if you have always had a heavy period, additional problems can occur if it worsens or continues past 7 days. If you are concerned about a change in your monthly cycle, it’s important to know when to see a specialist.
SYMPTOMS OF ABNORMAL BLEEDING CAN INCLUDE ANY OF THE FOLLOWING:
- Bleeding in between periods
- Heavy blood flow
- Large clots
- Bleeding longer than seven days
- Post menopausal bleeding
- Bleeding after sex
- More than 35 days between periods
- Only having four to nine periods in a year
