When should I schedule an appointment for uterine care?
Your uterus is a reproductive structure that sits behind your bladder. The uterine lining, or endometrium, is what thickens and breaks down each month during your period.
Conditions that affect either the endometrium or the structure of your uterus can lead to chronic, painful symptoms that interfere with your quality of life. Some of the most common issues that women seek uterine care services for include:
- Uterine prolapse
- Pelvic inflammatory disease
You should schedule a diagnostic uterine evaluation at Women’s Health Care Center of Houston if you experience unexplained pelvic pain, irregular bleeding, or difficulties achieving a pregnancy.
How are uterine conditions diagnosed and treated?
The physicians at Women’s Health Care Center of Houston offer several diagnostic tests to determine the root cause of pain, heavy bleeding, and other unexplained symptoms, including pelvic exams, Pap tests, and ultrasounds.
Once they determine your diagnosis, your Women’s Health Care Center of Houston provider tailors a treatment plan to your needs.
For instance, if you have heavy bleeding due to endometriosis, your provider may suggest endometrial ablation. This procedure uses heat energy to destroy excess endometrial tissue that grows outside of your uterus.
The team at Women’s Health Care Center of Houston also offers uterine balloon therapy, a minimally invasive, in-office procedure that uses a special balloon filled with heated fluids to destroy the endometrial lining of the uterus and stop heavy bleeding.
Your provider works closely with you to determine which treatment is best for your condition, based on your medical history, your family plans, and the severity of your symptoms.
