Comprehensive Gynecology Services for Hixson Patients
Gynecology is the practice of performing reproductive health services for women beginning during their teenage years and lasting through adulthood. Patients who see their doctor regularly learn how to care for their bodies, know how to recognize symptoms of illness and can protect themselves when they are sexually active. North Park OB-GYN is a gynecology practice in Hixson that has provided a wide range of services since 1974, from the basic gynecological exam to bioidentical hormone therapy.
You should see your gynecologist annually for a wellness exam. During the appointment, your doctor will perform a breast exam and pelvic exam such as a Pap smear as well as STD tests if you are sexually active. We understand that this type of appointment may feel awkward, especially for young women, but we are always professional, friendly and patient to ensure your comfort. In addition to lab services, we diagnose pelvic pain and menstrual problems such as PMS, cramping, heavy bleeding or irregular cycles. We also provide treatments for osteoporosis, menopause management and cervical biopsy or endometrial biopsy services.
Fertility is a large part of your reproductive health. If you are not yet ready to be a parent, we provide contraceptives/contraception services, including:
- Birth control pills
- Intrauterine devices (IUDs) including Mirena, Skyla, Paragard and Nexplanon
- Tubal Ligation
If you are ready to begin family planning, we provide preconception care and pelvic ultrasounds as well as teach you the best method of stopping birth control. Unfortunately, conception is not easy for all families. If you suffer from endometriosis, ask us about Lupron injections.
