If you are having pain or issues with menstruation and any part of your reproductive system, Dr. Broad will examine your personal history and review your overall health and well-being. We don’t just treat symptoms, we look for the underlying causes for these symptoms. Chronic inflammation inside the body can result in symptoms that present gynecological problems, such as menstrual cramps, PMS and period-related issues.
If you experience menstrual cycles that are not regular and are bothersome please schedule an appointment to discuss, evaluate and treat.
We treat these diseases
Cervicitis may be caused by a non-sexually transmitted infection of the cervix, or by one of several sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
Fibrocystic Breast Disease is not really a disease, but a common condition in which breast pain, cysts, and noncancerous lumps occur together.
The most serious and common complication of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) among women is pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), an infection of the upper genital tract.
Abnormal uterine bleeding is a common condition that is defined as heavy menstrual flow, or unexpected or prolonged bleeding. The incidence of abnormal uterine bleeding increases as women grow older.
Adenomyosis, a form of endometriosis, is a condition whereby endometrial tissue implants itself within the uterine musculature.

Asherman’s syndrome is characterized by intrauterine adhesions that typically occur as a result of scar formation after uterine surgery, especially after a dilatation and curettage.
Non-cancerous ovarian cysts are common among women of reproductive age. Doctors often rule out cancer before diagnosing a condition such as benign ovarian cysts.

We are utilizing the following methods
If you’re experiencing gynecological symptoms such as pelvic pain, unusual vaginal bleeding, skin changes, abnormal vaginal discharge or urinary problems a pelvic exam can help your doctor diagnose the causes of these symptoms.
During a pelvic exam, the doctor checks your vulva and your inside reproductive organs — your vagina, cervix, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and uterus. Using a speculum is one part of a pelvic exam — it’s an instrument that gently opens your vagina so the doctor can see inside. Aside from visual exam, cultures may be taken to detect Sexually transmitted disease (STD) or a pap test may be collected. Pap tests are used to screen for cancerous changes on your cervix.
Lastly the bimanual exam, your doctor will put 1 or 2 gloved and lubricated fingers into your vagina while gently pressing on your lower abdomen with their other hand. This is a way to check for pain or masses in your reproductive organs.
An OB-GYN ultrasound is an imaging method that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce an internal image of a woman’s bladder, uterus, fallopian tubes, cervix and ovaries.
The purpose of an OB-GYN ultrasound is twofold: In obstetric medicine to confirm and monitor pregnancy, and in gynecologic care to evaluate conditions such as ovarian cysts, abnormal uterine bleeding and uterine fibroids.
