• Abnormal Uterine Bleeding
    This is abnormal, unpredictable bleeding from your vagina. It isn't caused by things like infection, disease or pregnancy. It can happen between your menstrual periods, and the bleeding may be light or heavy.
  • Cervical Cancer
    Cervical cancer happens here, in the cervix. It's the lower part of a woman's womb (or uterus). If this cancer is found early, it can be cured. If left untreated, it can spread to other parts of your body.
  • Cervical Dysplasia
    This is a change in the cells of your cervix. That's the lower part of your uterus. If you have cervical dysplasia, cells of the cervix begin to show signs that are not normal. They aren't cancer cells, but they may become cancerous over time.
  • Constipation (in Adults)
    This condition is a problem with the function of your bowels. It can be an issue for you as you age. Constipation can be related to your diet or your daily routine. But for some people, it can be a sign of a more serious disorder.
  • Diabetes (Gestational)
    This form of diabetes develops during pregnancy. With it, the hormone insulin has problems helping the body turn blood glucose (commonly called blood sugar) into energy. In most cases, gestational diabetes can be controlled with no complications. It often goes away after pregnancy.
  • Endometrial Cancer
    This cancer begins in a woman's uterus. That's the hollow organ we call the "womb," where a fetus grows during pregnancy. The cancer forms in the endometrial tissue. That's a layer of cells lining the inside of the womb.
  • Endometrial Polyps
    An endometrial polyp is a soft, fleshy growth that develops on the inner wall of the uterus. A polyp may have a thick base, or it may be attached to the uterus by a thin stalk. A woman may develop a single polyp or multiple polyps, and they may be large or small.
  • Endometriosis
    This involves your endometrial tissue. It lines the inside of your uterus. That's the tissue that breaks down and sheds when you have your period. With this condition, your endometrial tissue begins to grow outside of your uterus.
  • Female Sexual Dysfunction
    This common condition, which affects many women at some point in their lives, is a persistent lack of sexual desire, arousal, climax or a sensation of pain that can cause personal distress and may greatly strain a woman's intimate relationships. Although female sexual dysfunction can be a lifelong problem for many women, this condition is very treatable.
    This is a disease of your immune system. It begins as an infection by the human immunodeficiency virus, which we call "HIV." Over time, this virus can lead to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. That's the syndrome we call "AIDS."
  • Menopause
    This natural biological process is the permanent end of fertility. Menopause is the time when the ovaries stop producing hormones at the levels needed to allow sexual reproduction. It typically occurs around age 51.
  • Menstrual Cramps (Dysmenorrhea)
    Menstrual cramps are abdominal cramps that can occur monthly just before and during a womans menstrual period. Usually they do not indicate a problem. However, sometimes cramps can be a symptom of a disorder.
  • Metastatic Cancer of the Spine
    This form of cancer develops in or near the spinal cord or within the vertebrae. It can spread through multiple levels of the spine. It can lead to a wide range of serious complications.
  • Morning Sickness
    During pregnancy, especially during the first three or four months, you may often feel nausea. You may have vomiting. It's called "morning sickness." But it can happen at any time during the day or night.
  • Ovarian Cancer
    This is a growth of cancer cells in one or both of your ovaries. These organs are part of a woman's reproductive system. They make your egg cells. They also make hormones.
  • Ovarian Cysts
    These are sacs filled with fluid. They can form on or in the ovaries (the reproductive organs that produce a woman's egg cells). Ovarian cysts are common. Most women have them at some time during their lives. In most cases they are not cancerous and aren't harmful.
  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
    This is a hormonal disorder. We call it "PCOS." It affects some women and girls of reproductive age. Often, it begins around the time a girl gets her first period. But for some women, it develops later.
  • Polypectomy (Hysteroscopic Morcellator)
    This outpatient procedure is used to remove one or more polyps growths that commonly develop along the walls of the uterus. The procedure is performed with the aid of a specialized device called a hysteroscope, which is inserted through the cervix and into the uterus. The hysteroscope contains a light, camera and a cutting instrument called a morcellator.
  • Posterior Vaginal Wall Prolapse (Rectocele)
    This is a bulge in the back wall of the vagina. It happens when the thin wall of tissue between the vagina and the rectum isn't strong enough to hold back the rectum. It lets the rectum push into the vagina.
  • Preeclampsia
    This is a complication you can have during pregnancy. It causes high blood pressure and other issues. It can happen early or late in your pregnancy. In rare cases, it can develop after you give birth.
  • Urge Incontinence (Overactive Bladder)
    This is when you need to urinate often and suddenly. It happens when the muscles that control your bladder have spasms. These spasms can force out urine even when your bladder isn't full. When you feel the need to go, you may have only a few seconds to get to the toilet.
  • Urinary Incontinence (Stress Incontinence)
    This condition is an inability to hold back urine when pressure or physical stress is placed on the bladder. Stress incontinence can cause embarrassing incidents of wet clothing.
  • Uterine Fibroids
    These growths, also called "myomas," form in the wall of your uterus. They are made from muscle cells and other tissues. They can be small or large, and you can have one or many. Fibroids are tumors, but they are benign. That means they aren't cancerous.
  • Vaginal Prolapse
    This is a bulge in your vagina. It happens when the muscles of your vaginal walls weaken. This lets organs and structures move out of position and push into your vagina.
