A woman’s choice of contraception is one of the most personal decisions she makes. Manhattan gynecologists offer a wide range of contraceptive methods, including:
- Birth control pills
- Contraceptive patches
- Contraceptive injections
- Vaginal ring
Skilled doctors will discuss the pros and cons of each contraceptive method with each patient to help her determine the best type of birth control based on her personal situation.
Minimally Invasive Surgeries
Minimally invasive or laser surgeries for female gynecological conditions allow women to recover more quickly and with less discomfort and less risk of complications. Conditions often treated with minimally invasive laparoscopic or laser surgery include:
- Intra-uterine operations
- Uterine ablation
Some women or conditions are not candidates for minimally invasive surgery, and for those patients traditional surgery is necessary.
As women age, the vagina becomes looser and less elastic, especially after childbearing. Vaginal rejuvenation surgery can restore the vagina to its pre-pregnancy condition. Also known as vaginal tightening, the procedure helps increase lubrication, combatting the dryness that has such a negative effect on sex life.
Some women decide to have cosmetic labiaplasty done at the same time as vaginal rejuvenation, making their genital appear more attractive. If a woman feels uncomfortable about the size and looks of her labia, this procedure can increase her self-confidence.
After childbirth, the difference in size between the labia might become exaggerated. Enlarged labia can also cause clothing irritation – or fall out of bathing suits.
Certain athletic activities, such as bicycling or horseback riding, become uncomfortable or downright painful. Labiaplasty reduces the labia’s size, relieving discomfort.
If a woman must deal with a large clitoral hood, it can seriously impact her sexual pleasure. Such a woman may benefit from a clitoral hood reduction, which removes excess tissue. The result is a more pleasing appearance and more clitoral stimulation during sex.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
There is a reason menopause has long been known as “the change of life.” Not only does menopause signal the end of the reproductive years, but it can affect a woman physically, mentally and emotionally.
For women struggling with menopausal side effects – such as hot flashes, night sweats, loss of libido, vaginal dryness, insomnia and brain fog – help is available in the form of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
Bioidentical hormones are the same on the molecular level as the hormones formerly produced by the ovaries. They can quell menopausal symptoms and allow women to feel like themselves again. Bioidentical hormone therapy is custom-tailored for each patient.
Unlike standard hormone replacement therapy, derived from pregnant mare’s urine, bioidentical hormone therapy does not increase the risk of breast cancer or cardiovascular disease. In fact, it protects against these issues, as well as macular degeneration, osteoporosis and diabetes.
