Yearly Pelvic Exam
A yearly pelvic exam and Pap smear is one of the greatest gifts you can give to yourself. Regular Pap smears and pelvic exams can detect pre-cancerous conditions early, increasing the likelihood of successful treatment.
Today, there are many contraception or birth control methods to choose from. Your physician will discuss the different options with you and your partner, if desired, to determine which method is right for you. Options include oral birth control, IUDs, tubal ligation, Essure, Nexaplon, and more.
A breast exam is an integral part of your yearly exam. If required, you can take advantage of mammography services at Schneck’s Women’s Diagnostic Center, just minutes away from our office.

Endometrial ablation is used to treat many causes of heavy bleeding. In most cases, women with heavy bleeding are treated first with medication. If medication can’t control bleeding, endometrial ablation may be used.
Intrauterine Devices IUDs
An Intrauterine Device, or IUD, is a small t-shaped plastic device inserted and left inside the uterus to prevent pregnancy. The IUD is an alternative birth control method and, unlike sterilization, can be removed after five to ten years of use, depending upon the device. An IUD can be inserted or removed during an office visit.
Abnormal Pap Evaluation and Treatment
Getting a yearly pelvic exam and Pap smear is the most important thing you can do for your health and well being. Pap smears are early detectors of cervical cancer. If your Pap smear results indicate an abnormality, your physician may first order a repeat Pap smear to ensure the accuracy of the results. If further abnormalities are detected, the physician may perform a colposcopy, LEEP procedure, or HPV testing.
Pelvic Pain Management
Your physician at Schneck OB/GYN can help you alleviate or manage pelvic pain by identifying the causes and developing a personalized treatment plan. Some pelvic pain is normal and is related to monthly ovulation or related to pre-menstrual conditions. However, if pelvic pain has become a chronic, annoying disruption in your life, this could indicate a more serious condition. Laparoscopic medical management

Schneck OB/GYN offers comprehensive care to help women in menopause and in the pre- or peri-menopausal stages stay healthy and feel their best.
Many women leak small amounts of urine at times. When leakage of urine becomes frequent or severe enough to become a problem, it is called urinary incontinence. In most cases, urinary incontinence can be treated with success without surgery. If you have symptoms of urinary incontinence, tell your physician at Schneck OB/GYN.
Pelvic Organ Prolapse
Pelvic Organ Prolapse is a disorder in which one or more of the pelvic organs drop from their normal position. Prolapse can be caused by injury, pregnancy and childbirth, pelvic surgery, menopause, and is a natural part of aging. There are many non-surgical ways to treat prolapse, including pessaries. Should non-surgical treatments fail, there are many surgical options offered by Schneck OB/GYN.
