What is women’s health?

Women’s health is a medical specialty that exclusively focuses on conditions that primarily affect women, such as menopause, thyroid problems, and reproductive. Dr. Gelderman-Moffett offers complete women’s health care that focuses on your individual needs as you age.

What is included in women’s health?

Dr. Gelderman-Moffett provides personalized women’s health care based on your age, medical history, and individual health concerns. Some of the most common women’s health services she offers include:

Menopause care

As a NCMP-certified physician, Dr. Gelderman-Moffett understands the unique needs of menopausal women. She offers comprehensive consultations for women interested in treating their menopause symptoms, as well as follow-up visits. To treat many symptoms of menopause, Dr. Gelderman-Moffett offers hormone therapy with FDA approved bioidentical hormones. She is also well versed with non-hormonal medications and supplements.

Reproductive counseling

Dr. Gelderman-Moffett provides thoughtful counseling services for birth control options.

Preventive screenings

Prevention is key when caring for women’s health. That’s why Dr. Gelderman-Moffett offers comprehensive well-woman exams that include a breast and pelvic exam, as well as a Pap smear, which tests for signs of cervical cancer. These annual screenings help you stay in tune with your body and make any necessary adjustments to optimize your overall health. We will do evaluation of breast cancer risk and recommend best screening options.

Vaginal rejuvenation

If you frequently experience vaginal dryness, pain during sex, or urinary incontinence, Dr. Gelderman-Moffett offers vaginal rejuvenation treatments with the Alma® FemiLift laser. This nonsurgical treatment can enhance lubrication, tighten the pelvic floor muscles, and increase circulation to your vaginal tissues for improved sensitivity. There is the option to treat with hormonal and non homormal medications.

What are the most common women’s health issues?

Certain health issues disproportionately affect women more than men, while others exclusively impact women. Common health concerns that women face as they age include:

  • Menopause
  • Vaginal health issues
  • Insomnia and sleep disorders
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Osteoporosis

Another common health concern in aging women is osteoporosis. This degenerative condition causes porous bones vulnerable to fractures. One of the main risk factors for osteoporosis is menopause. The sudden drop in estrogen levels can lead to bone loss. Fortunately, preventive treatments and hormone therapy can help minimize the effects of osteoporosis.
