Your annual gynecologic exam serves to prevent disease from developing while providing for your current health needs.
Dr. Schuster reviews your medical history, takes vitals like your weight and blood pressure, and orders blood tests as needed. The services commonly included in a well-woman exam are:
As a gynecologist, Dr. Schuster specializes in women’s urinary issues, and the two most common urinary problems he treats are urinary tract infections (UTIs) and incontinence.
A simple urinalysis lets Dr. Schuster know if you have a urinary tract infection. As far as treatments are concerned, antibiotics and over-the-counter pain medication clear up infections and minimize discomfort.
Incontinence is associated with urinary urgency, frequency, and leakage. Dr. Schuster can help women with incontinence can regain control of their bladder with bladder retraining, Kegel exercises, and bladder support devices.
However, if bladder prolapse or muscle spasms contribute to your incontinence, Dr. Schuster may recommend surgery or medication to correct your bladder symptoms.
Don’t hesitate to consult Dr. Schuster if you experience the following symptoms:
These symptoms often occur from health issues that are easy to treat, but they can also indicate a more serious underlying problem. For example, pelvic pain may be a symptom of uterine fibroids or endometriosis.
