Gynecology

Dr. Reddy and her staff provide the full range of gynecologic services, from annual check-ups and routine Pap smears to surgeries performed in our office or in the hospital spanning women of all ages.

Dr. Reddy offers the latest advances in both preventative and problem-oriented women’s health care. Dr. Reddy offers the following gynecological services:

Menstrual Issues

Heavy and irregular menstrual bleeding evaluation and treatment.

Do heavy periods interfere with your life?

Dedicated

If so, you’re not alone. One in four women suffers from heavy periods caused by Abnormal Uterine Bleeding (AUB). AUB can be emotionally and physically devastating, causing many women to limit their activities and lifestyle

Many treatments are available, but one choice many women are making today is HER OPTION. Most women choose this because it is a minimally invasive alternative to a hysterectomy. HER OPTION cryoablation reduces or eliminates menstrual periods in most women. This treatment can free you from the limitations and pain associated with heavy bleeding without the need to remove your uterus or disrupt your natural hormones.

There are many reasons that women choose HER OPTION:
  • High success rate in reducing bleeding
  • No need to remove the uterus or to disrupt the natural hormones
  • The treatment can be performed in the comfort of Dr. Reddy’s office with a return to normal activities the next day.
  • Cryoablation acts as a natural anesthetic, increasing patient comfort during the procedure.
Helpful Links:

If you answer yes to any one of the following questions, you may be suffering from heavy bleeding.

  • Do you become fatigue due to your heavy bleeding?
  • Does your heavy bleeding affect your social, athletic or sexual activities?
  • Do you miss work because of your periods?
  • Do you pass clots during your periods?
  • Do you avoid leaving your home for fear of accidents?
  • Do you avoid wearing light colors during your period?
  • Has medication (birth control pills) failed to help your heavy bleeding?

If you are interested in learning more about a one time treatment for heavy bleeding that is safe, non-surgical and may be provided in the comfort of Dr. Reddy’s office please give us a call.

Contraception Counseling

Dr. Reddy offers the following contraception services:

Permanent
  • In office Surgical Sterilization (no incision)
Tubal Ligation with implants - we provide this procedure in the office with the ”Essure device“. It is a procedure that is done through the vagina with light sedation anesthesia. No incisions are involved.
Reversible
  • Oral contraceptives (birth control pills)
  • Depo-Provera - Injection given in the arm/buttocks every 12 weeks to prevent pregnancy.
  • Intrauterine Device (IUD) - Device that releases small amounts of hormones locally into the uterus. Placement is performed in the office by Dr. Reddy with little to no discomfort.
  • Mirena - Mirena is a hormone-releasing IUD placed in your uterus for up to 5 years and is recommended for use in women who have had a child. Mirena also treats heavy periods in women who choose intrauterine contraception. For more information about Mirena visit www.Mirena.com.
  • Skyla - Skyla is also a hormone-releasing IUD but it continuously offers protection from pregnancy for up to 3 years and can be used whether or not you have had a child. For more information about Skyla visit www.skyla-us.com.
  • Nuva Ring - works similarly to the pill but has much lower side effects because of lower dose of hormones. The ring is inserted vaginally by you and lasts for one month. Website www.nuvaring.com

Infertility

The majority of couples (85%) will achieve pregnancy within one year. Dr. Reddy will evaluate your needs by talking with you first and then ordering indicated tests which may include blood work, a semen analysis, ultrasound and/or HSG (Hysterosalpingogram). Referral to a Fertility Specialist may also be considered on a case by case basis.

Menopause Evaluation and Treatment

Menopause can be a very challenging time for women. This marks the end of your ”reproductive“ years and the beginning of a new phase in life. There are many changes in hormone levels and changes in your body. This is a time of life when it is good to have a doctor with whom you are comfortable discussing these changes. Dr. Reddy can devise a treatment plan that is right for you and your body. We treat each patient individually basing treatment on your symptoms, medical issues and family history.

Preconception Counseling

This is the time when couples begin to seriously think about conceiving. Let Dr. Reddy and her team help you provide the best environment for your growing baby. If you are thinking about becoming pregnant next month or next year call Dr. Reddy and her staff to help prepare for your needs.

Here are a few topics we discuss during a preconception counseling appointment:

  • Annual exam: When was the last one? We need to assess your baseline health status to establish where you are regarding your health.
  • Nutrition: Prenatal vitamin with folic acid that helps prevent birth defects before you become pregnant is highly recommended. We will assess your nutritional status and make dietary recommendations to ensure your body is getting what it needs from the foods you eat.
  • Genetic screening: An optional test Dr. Reddy offers as part of her prenatal counseling is the Cystic Fibrosis Carrier Screening. This precise genetic carrier screening can identify with pinpoint accuracy the likelihood of your child inheriting Cystic Fibrosis. For more information about this screening test please visit www.nxgenmdx.com.

Well Woman Exams

Women's Health

An annual exam or well woman exam is a yearly visit for a general health check, including a breast exam and Pap smear. You may expect the following:

  • General physical exam
  • Pelvic exam
  • Complete health history
  • Complete review of current medications
  • Evaluation for additional health screening tests
    (i.e. mammograms, DEXA, cancer screening etc.)

We will happily assist you in checking your insurance policy to maximize your benefits for a yearly preventative health visit or a women’s health pap/pelvic/breast exam. Different insurance policies have different rules for preventative care coverage. Most insurance companies will only pay for one annual exam per year. Your appointment must be at least one year from your previous annual exam.

BRCA testing

The purpose of BRCA testing is to see if you are carrying a BRCA mutation and could therefore be at increased risk for developing certain cancers, including breast or ovarian cancer. Having this information can allow your physician to provide the appropriate additional screening and/or prevention options that could help reduce your risk of developing cancer. The BRCAssure test requires a sample of blood and filling out a family history questionnaire.
