Irregular & Heavy Menstrual Bleeding
Almost all women experience some degree of pain during their periods, but if you are suffering such bad side effects that you are having trouble completing daily tasks and responsibilities, you may want to seek treatment. Here at Capital Women’s Care, we’ll work with you to diagnose your menstrual pain and find the treatment option that works best for your body and lifestyle – whether that be the right birth control pill, or simply a better diet.
Generally, pain associated with menstruation is called dysmenorrhea and over 50% of women who menstruate report dysmenorrhea for at least 1-2 days each month.
This pain typically occurs during the first couple days of a woman’s period and is caused by natural chemicals made in the uterine lining – this is called primary dysmenorrhea.
However, some women suffer from secondary dysmenorrhea, which is caused by a disorder in the reproductive system and typically surfaces later in a woman’s life, increasing with age.
To find the cause of your dysmenorrhea, the providers at CWC Ashburn will likely review your medical history, perform a pelvic exam, and potentially request an ultrasound exam or laparoscopy. Your provider may also suggest you start taking birth control medication to regulate your hormones.
There are a multitude of contraception options for every woman and every lifestyle, we’ll work with you to find what’s best for you and your needs.
Contraceptive does not come without side effects, and we’ll take our time going through the multitude of options with you (be it the pill, the patch, an IUD, or the shot), to ensure that you’re happy with your choice of birth control. We currently provide all forms of birth control and are happy to put them into place during your appointment.
If you’re not happy with your first choice, we’ll go through the process again to find you a better solution. If hormonal birth control isn’t for you and you prefer a more natural method like fertility awareness (NFP), we’ll give you our best advice for that too.
Menopause can be a stressful and emotional time for many women, but it doesn’t have to be! We’re here to ensure that your journey through menopause is a seamless and pain-free experience that allows you to find joy in the end of your pesky period – even if it comes with hot flashes. We’ll also work together to decide if hormone therapy or certain medications like SERMS are right for you during menopause.
One in seven women between the ages of 18 and 50 suffer chronic pelvic pain. If you’re one of these women and you don’t want chronic pelvic pain to control your life, we’re here to help.
Unfortunately, chronic pelvic pain can be poorly understood by many practitioners, so we’ll be patient and take all proper steps to see what could be the cause of yours – including, but not limited to: a pelvic exam, an ultrasound, a laparoscopy, a cystoscopy, and a colonoscopy referring you to specialists. In some cases, something as simple as better posture can eradicate your pelvic pain – let’s work together to kick that pain for good!
