As Certified Nurse-Midwives, we are also trained in well-woman care. We have prescriptive authority and can prescribe medications such as birth control pills, antibiotics, or antidepressants as needed. We offer routine well-woman exams including Pap smears, routine lab work and screening for sexually transmitted diseases if desired. We can also arrange for mammograms, digital mammography or breast ultrasound as clinically indicated.
Something new in the world of gynecology is that of bio-identical hormone replacement. As the years leading up to menopause creep by, our menstrual cycles may start to change. Bleeding may become erratic and sometimes we start to experience symptoms such as forgetfulness, foggy thinking, mood swings, tearfulness, hot flashes and night sweats. These are the hallmarks of perimenopause. Our midwives can do special saliva testing to identify the degree to which the specific hormones are out of balance. Once the problem has been diagnosed, we can offer various medication options as well as good counseling to help alleviate your symptoms.
If your gynecological symptoms are more severe, we will gladly refer you to one of the physicians at Caring for Women for a more thorough evaluation.
