When to be concerned about irregular periods
Most women of childbearing age will experience an irregular period at some point along the way. For the most part, occasionally starting a few days early or a few days late is more of a stressful annoyance than a cause for concern.

- Birth control information and counseling
- Colposcopy, an examination of your cervix, vagina and vulva
- Cryosurgery to freeze abnormal cervical tissue
- Dilation and curettage

- Hysterectomies, including a minimally invasive procedure that minimizes pain and recovery time
- Loop electrosurgical excision procedure – or LEEP, removal of abnormal cervical tissue

- Pelvic exams to check for abnormalities or determine the source of pelvic pain

Getting preventive women’s care at Tidelands Health is easy and convenient. When you visit us for your regularly scheduled gynecological exam, you can receive a mammogram, bone density test and other health screenings in just a single appointment.
Three to six months before you try to conceive, talk to your gynecologist at Tidelands Health to learn how to achieve your best possible health before pregnancy. Your pre-conception visit may include a medical history review, body mass index – or BMI – calculation, blood work, urine sample, blood pressure check and other screenings. If you need medical treatment or guidance in making lifestyle changes to promote a safe, healthy pregnancy, your doctor will recommend options to help you get appropriate care.
If you and your partner have trouble conceiving, Tidelands Health can help you find out why. You’ll meet with caring fertility specialists who offer comprehensive diagnostic tests and advanced fertility treatments.

Turn to the caring gynecologists at Tidelands Health for guidance in navigating this life change. You’ll learn about hormone replacement therapy and other treatments that could help you, and you’ll discover steps to take on your own to ease your symptoms.
