WOMEN'S HEALTH

Women’s Health is more than just a yearly exam. Guidelines on women’s health are continually changing. Women’s health involves pap smears, breast exams, mammography, vaccinations, and counseling on hormonal issues both pre-menopausal and post-menopausal. We gladly will perform wellness exams and PAP smears, though we do not provide prenatal care nor do we perform operations.

IUD insertion (Available at our Keller location only)
An IUD (intrauterine device) is a form of birth control is available in hormonal and non-hormonal variations. It is a small piece of flexible plastic (or copper) shaped like a “T” that’s put into your uterus to prevent pregnancy. It’s long-term, reversible, and one of the most effective birth control methods out there.

The 2 types of IUDs are divided into hormonal and non-hormonal versions:

  • The non-hormonal version is available as a copper IUD (ParaGard)
  • The hormonal IUDs are available as the Mirena, Kyleena, Liletta, and Skyla
