Pap Smear services

Pap Smear

A Pap Smear is a test that is usually performed yearly after a woman turns 21 or becomes sexually active. The test is a simple, quick collection of cells. While a Pap Smear is not a diagnostic test for cervical cancer, it can detect any abnormalities which can then lead to further testing.

What to expect during a Pap Smear
At the start of the exam, you will be asked to remove your clothing from the waist down. You will be given a medical gown and a half sheet to cover your lap. At the medical center office, there is an examination chair with stirrups at the end for your feet. You will position yourself in the chair, with your feet in the stirrups, so that you can be examined. An instrument, called a speculum, is lubricated and inserted into the vagina. This tool allows the doctor to have a clear path to the cervix. It is important to remember to relax and breath. This will relax the muscles of the vagina and allow for an easier examination by the medical professional.

After the speculum is inserted, a tiny, thin bristle brush is used to collect some tissue from the back of the cervix. Most women do not feel anything besides a light sensation when this is performed while some experience a feeling similar to menstrual cramps. From here, the medical professional places the sample in a small tube to be sent off to a laboratory for testing. The speculum is removed and the Pap Smear is over. A Pap Smear procedure only takes a few minutes to complete. After the Pap Smear is completed you can get dressed and conclude your medical examination.

Colposcopy services

Colposcopy

At Life’s Cycle, we care about preventive healthcare and one of the services we offer is a colposcopy as part of screening for cervical cancer. A typical cervical cancer screening, known as Pap test or Pap smear, can sometimes come back with abnormal results.

It is important to note that abnormal results are common and do not necessarily mean you have cancer or precancerous cells. Sometimes your outside factors such as your menstrual cycle can interfere, so often follow-up tests are required. We may recommend a colposcopy if your recent Pap smear has come back abnormal.

IUD Placement services

IUD Placement

At Life’s Cycle, we understand that your choice of birth control is a personal one. We offer a wide range of contraception options and will help find one that is right for you and your lifestyle. While some people prefer the familiarity of pills, the convenience of an IUD or implant may be more appealing to others.

IUD placement is performed within our office and is a simple procedure that only takes a few minutes of your time. Using a speculum, we can spread your vaginal walls for better access to your cervix, the opening of the uterus. The IUD is then inserted through the cervix and embedded into the uterus.

You may feel a slight pinch during the placement but otherwise should not experience any discomfort or pain. A plastic tail is attached to the IUD and extends into the vagina. We recommend ensuring the tail is in place before having sex for maximum protection. The IUD works by making the uterus inhospitable to host sperm and increasing your body’s production of cervical mucus to make it difficult for sperm to reach the egg.

VBAC

Preventative Care

Preventative Care

Here at Life’s Cycle we believe in the importance of preventative care and having routine screenings to maintain your overall good health. Early detection can be the key to treating women’s cancers and increasing the chances of a full recovery. Our practice offers various cancer screening options so that you can ensure your optimal health.

Breast Cancer Screenings
Clinical breast exams are conducted during each exam to search for any changes in your breasts or unusual lumps. We will ask about your family history and if any members have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Annual mammograms begin at the recommended age of 40.

It is important that you conduct self-breast exams at home so that you can notice any changes in your breast between visits.

Cervical Cancer Screenings
Pap smears are important for finding any changes in your cervical cells. These tests begin at the age of 21. The HPV test can also be conducted at this time since the HPV virus can lead to cervical cancer. Even if you have been vaccinated against HPV, it is still important that you follow the screening recommendations for your age group.

Colorectal Cancer Screenings
The screening for colon cancer typically begins at the age of 45, unless otherwise recommended by your doctor. This is accomplished by analyzing a stool sample or by examining the colon and rectum (colonoscopy).

Endometrial Cancer Screenings
During menopause, women should report any unexpected vaginal changes such as bleeding or spotting. There are many causes of postmenopausal bleeding that can be benign such as uterine polyps or fibroids. However, uterine cancer, or endometrial cancer, can also cause abnormal changes during menopause. If you notice any changes, please report them to your doctor so that a biopsy can be conducted to determine whether there is a concern for cancer.

Vaginal Rejuvenation

Vaginal Rejuvenation

Women who are uncomfortable about the appearance, feel, or function of their vagina should seek vaginal revitalization treatments. Vaginal revitalization treatments may be for you if you experience:

  • Vaginal dryness
  • Itching
  • Burning
  • Pain during sex
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Endure excess labial tissue that may interfere with the fit of clothing, sexual sensation, or physical activity
Your doctor will work with you to customize a treatment plan that will help you to regain your confidence both in and out of the bedroom with several options. After a consultation and examination, we will be able to recommend the best form of treatment depending on your condition and goals.

MonaLisa Touch®
MonaLisa Touch® is a form of laser therapy that stimulates blood circulation and the production of collagen to restore your vaginal tissue. After a series of treatments, you will experience an improvement in vaginal strength, resiliency, and sensation.

It is a quick and painless treatment with no scheduled downtime. However, you should avoid sexual intercourse and the use of tampons for several days while you recover.

Labiaplasty
Labiaplasty can be a great option if you have excess labial tissue that may make you feel self-conscious about your body.

There are several techniques that your doctor may use during this procedure to alter the size and shape of your labia. The trim technique involves trimming away the excess tissue and then stitching up the area. The wedge technique means a piece of the labia in the shape of a pie piece or wedge will be removed before the area is stitched together.

Following the procedure, you will need a week of downtime and rest. We recommend elevating your hips and using ice to help keep swelling to a minimum. Minor swelling may linger for up to six months as the body fully heals. Sexual intercourse and the use of tampons should be avoided for six weeks following the procedure.

Endometriosis

Endometriosis

1 in every 10 women of child-bearing age has endometriosis, which is the overgrowth of uterine lining beyond the uterus. Our practice offers treatment options for those who struggle with this condition.

What is Endometriosis?
It is a common gynecological condition, in which the tissue that lines your uterus, known as the endometrium, grows outside of your uterine cavity. It can grow on other parts of the reproductive system such as the ovaries or spread to the bowels and tissues lining your pelvis. It is unusual for the tissue to spread beyond the pelvic region, but it is not impossible. Endometrial tissue outside of the uterus is known as an endometrial implant.

The hormonal changes brought on by your menstrual cycle will also affect any misplaced tissue outside of the uterus. This will cause the areas to become inflamed and painful as the tissue grows, thickens, and sheds as it does in your uterus. Depending on the location this can cause internal bleeding, pain, and reduce your chances of pregnancy.

Symptoms
Symptoms of endometriosis vary. Some women may experience mild symptoms while others may have more moderate to severe experiences. The severity of your pain does not indicate the degree or stage of your condition. Some women with severe cases only experience minimal symptoms.

The most common symptom of endometriosis is pelvic pain, but you may also experience:

  • Painful periods
  • Pain in the lower abdomen before and during menstruation
  • Cramps one or two weeks around menstruation
  • Heavy menstrual bleeding
  • Bleeding between periods
  • Pain following intercourse
  • Infertility
  • Discomfort with bowel movements
  • Lower back pain at any time during your menstrual cycle

You may also experience no symptoms, which is why it is important to attend routine gynecological exams. This will allow your doctor to note any changes. If suspected, your doctor may recommend laparoscopy as it is the only certain method of identifying endometriosis by viewing it directly. A tissue sample will be sent and analyzed by the lab to confirm the diagnosis.

Treatment
There is no cure, so treatment focuses on the management of symptoms and improving your quality of life. Everyone reacts differently, so we will work with you to design the right treatment plan for your condition.

Pain medication can be used to help manage some symptoms of pain and inflammation. Hormonal therapies can also relieve pain and stop the progression of endometriosis in some cases. By blocking the natural production of estrogen, endometriosis can be slowed but may also bring on early symptoms of menopause.

Laparoscopy, a minimally invasive surgery, may also be used to remove endometrial tissue from various sites. In severe cases and if your condition does not respond to other forms of treatment, your doctor may suggest undergoing a hysterectomy. A hysterectomy removes the uterus, cervix, and ovaries as well as any visible implant lesions. Undergoing this surgery means you will be unable to become pregnant.

Cancer Screenings

Cancer Screenings

Cancer screening is an important part of maintaining your overall good health. Like all cancers, early detection can be the key to treating women’s cancers and increasing the chances of a full recovery.

Birth Control

Birth Control

For women who are sexually active but do not wish to become pregnant, there are several birth control options, or contraceptives, available that are safe and effective. We will work with you to find a form of birth control that is right for you and your lifestyle.

Types
As mentioned above there are various kinds of birth control:

  • Barrier
    These methods of birth control include male and female condoms as well as diaphragms, or cups, that work to prevent sperm from entering the uterus.
  • Hormonal
    Hormonal birth controls may come in the form of pills, patches, shots, or implants. These methods alter your hormone production to either prevent your body from releasing eggs or to thicken cervical mucus so that fertilization does not occur.
  • Procedural
    These birth control methods involve undergoing minor procedures to prevent pregnancy. An IUD, or intrauterine contraception device, is a device placed within the uterus and works to decrease ovulation, thicken cervical mucus, or block sperm from entering the uterus.
    Another form of procedural birth control is tubal ligation. This form is permanent as the Fallopian tubes are cut, clamped, or burned off. This prevents eggs from traveling to the uterus or sperm from reaching the eggs.

Effectiveness
Abstinence, or refraining from sexual intercourse, is the only means of birth control that is proven to prevent pregnancy 100%. However, many of the birth control options listed above have excellent rates with less than 1% of women becoming pregnant when using birth control correctly.

Risks and Benefits
Every contraceptive has its own risk and benefits. It is important that you make this decision together with your doctor so that you are aware of all your options and choose the one that is right for you.

Fibroids

Fibroids

Fibroids are noncancerous growths that develop either in or on your uterus. These growths can cause pain, heavy periods, and difficulty becoming pregnant. If you know or suspect you may have fibroids, we will help you achieve relief with the latest treatment options for fibroids.

What are fibroids?
Fibroids are abnormal growths that develop in or on a woman’s uterus. These are typically benign or noncancerous tumors. However, they can become quite large and cause severe pain in addition to other symptoms that may affect your quality of life.

There are different types of fibroids and are described by the location of where the growth develops.

  • Intramural
    This is the most common type of fibroid and appears within the muscular wall of the uterus. These growths may become large and stretch your womb.
  • Subserosal
    Subserosal fibroids form on the outside of the uterus which is called the serosa. These growths can become large and make your womb appear bigger on one side.
  • Pedunculated
    This type of tumor grows from a subserosal fibroid that develops a slender base or stem to support the tumor.
  • Submucosal
    These fibroids develop in the middle muscle layer of the uterus and are the least common type.

Symptoms
Symptoms will depend on the number of tumors present as well as their size and location. Often smaller fibroids do not cause symptoms, but common signs and symptoms of fibroids include:

  • Heavy bleeding between and during your period
  • Pain in the pelvis or lower back
  • Increased menstrual cramping
  • Increased urge to urinate
  • Pain during sexual intercourse
  • Menstruation that lasts longer than a week
  • Pressure or fullness felt in the lower abdomen
  • Difficulty becoming pregnant

Your doctor can diagnose fibroids by feeling for any signs of abnormal growths in your uterus during a routine exam. An ultrasound or MRI can help to confirm the diagnosis and show the size and location of the fibroids.

Treatment
If the fibroids are small, do not cause health concerns, or do not affect your quality of life, treatment may not be necessary. Medications, lifestyle changes, and home remedies can help to relieve some discomfort. Other recommendations include:

  • Yoga
  • Massage
  • Dietary Changes
  • Regular exercise
  • Stress management

Birth control may also help to control any excessive bleeding during your periods. In severe cases, surgery may be recommended to remove fibroids from your uterus.

STD Screenings

STD Screenings

A sexually transmitted disease, or STD, is an infection passed from one person to another through sexual contact. These diseases can become serious and require immediate medical treatment to prevent further spread of infection. Symptoms will vary depending on the disease contracted but may include bumps or sores, rashes, or pain felt during urination or intercourse.

Men’s Health

At Life’s Cycle, we provide comprehensive men’s health services while making you feel at ease and comfortable with your body and any health concerns you may have.

What are the biggest concerns regarding men’s health?
As a group, men tend to avoid discussing their health or any concerns they have with anyone, including their doctors. However, putting off physical exams and preventive screens can allow underlying conditions to progress if left untreated. As men age, there are several common conditions that men are at higher risk of developing and they include:

  • Colon cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Liver disease
  • Low testosterone disorders
  • Prostate cancer
  • Stroke
Though some conditions increase risk with age, it is important to receive regular medical care regardless of how old you are.

How does your lifestyle affect your health?
Certain factors such as genetics and family history can impact your health, but your lifestyle can be the most significant factor in your health. If you smoke, don’t exercise regularly, and eat an unbalanced diet you can increase your risk of developing serious health conditions.

Fortunately, we are here to help lower your risk by offering lifestyle recommendations based on your health. We will work with you to develop a wellness program that fits your lifestyle while addressing your health concerns and needs. Some of our recommendations may include:

  • Beginning a well-rounded exercise routine
  • Eating a more balanced diet rich in leafy vegetables and lean proteins
  • Practicing better stress management
  • Reducing alcohol intake and the usage of tobacco products

How often should you have a physical?
Men between the ages of 18-40 should have yearly physicals or medical examinations. These physicals will include preventive screenings for high blood pressure, cholesterol issues, and diabetes. If you are sexually active, you will also be screened for sexually transmitted diseases.

Men over the age of 40 should continue to get annual examinations, though these may be more frequent as they age. In addition to standard screenings, you may undergo a colonoscopy or other additional screenings to check for age-related conditions.

How can you lower your risk?
With annual physicals, routine screenings, and following our recommendations on lifestyle changes, you can successfully manage your health. Regular care also enables us to detect any developing conditions early on, increasing the effectiveness of treatment.

If you are at risk or currently have a health condition that needs attention, we will work with you to find the right treatment plan. Depending on the condition, your treatment may include therapies, medication, surgery, or referrals for a more specialized approach.

For more information on men’s health and our services, contact our office today at (580) 221-7500.

Laser Hair Removal IPL

Unwanted or excessive hair growth can leave you feeling down and less-confident about your appearance, while ingrown hairs can cause a lot of pain and unsightly bumps. In the past, treatment for these issues was only effective for lighter skinned individuals with dark hair, but fortunately laser hair removal has become more accessible and advanced in recent years. At our practice, we are able to safely treat people with virtually all skin types and hair colors.

How does it work?
Lasers emit a specialized, pulsed light, which is absorbed by the pigment in your hair and then transmitted down the hair shaft to the root. The hair follicle is damaged by the heat of the laser, which prohibits future growth.

Before your procedure, we will evaluate your skin and hair type in order for us to select the best laser to suit your needs. We will also thoroughly discuss the possible risks, your expectations, and the best ways to prepare for treatment.

The duration of each session varies depending on what area of the body you are having treatment. A small area such as the upper lip may take only five minutes, while a larger area like the back or legs may take up to one hour. The area should be shaved or cut short prior to treatment. For best results, we recommend that you do not wax or pluck hairs for three weeks prior to treatment.

Laser hair removal is safe and effective when performed by a physician or other licensed professional specializing in laser technology. At our practice, you can expect the highest level of treatment from our qualified professionals.

FAQs:

What areas can be treated by laser hair removal?
Lasers can safely remove hair from almost any part of the body. The most popular areas to have laser hair removal include legs, armpits, face, bikini line, neck, upper arms, shoulders, and back.

However, virtually all areas that grow hair can be treated.

What should I expect during the treatment?
Laser hair removal is performed as an outpatient procedure in our office. A topical numbing cream will be applied before using the laser for your comfort. Most patients tolerate the procedure with ease and describe the sensation as “light prickling.”

Are the results permanent?
Results of laser hair removal will vary depending on the person and the area(s) treated. In most cases, hair removal will be long-lasting. Otherwise, hair growth may be significantly reduced, with new hair showing up finer, lighter, and more sparse.

How many treatments do I need?
Laser hair removal is performed over a series of treatments to ensure that hair is targeted at different stages of the growth cycle. The number of sessions required will also depend on the area(s) treated. For most people, six to eight treatments spaced approximately one month apart is sufficient. Any re-growths can be addressed with touch-up treatments.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our office today. We will be happy to assist you!

Botox and Fillers

Life’s Cycle is proud to assist our patients with Botox.

For years Botox has helped so many men and women successfully treat wrinkles and facial creases. As people age, they long for a more youthful appearance. Botox is able to give them this.

Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle is then not able to contract. This causes the wrinkles to relax and soften. Botox is typically used on the forehead lines, around the eyes, and frown lines. Typically wrinkles are caused as we age, but they are also brought on by sun damage and gravity.

Receiving Botox actually only takes a few short minutes, and anesthesia is not required. You will simply get injected with a fine needle into the specific muscle and feel only mild discomfort.

Our entire staff is dedicated to helping you. We want to ensure that you are happy with your results and that you never feel like you have any unanswered questions. We are here for you before and after your treatment.

If you have any questions regarding Botox, contact us today at (580) 221-7500.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are safe, gel-like injectable substances that smooth creases, fine lines, and wrinkles to rejuvenate your skin and add volume and fullness to your face. Dermal fillers can be used to enhance your lips, fill your cheeks, straighten out your jawline, soften grooves underneath your eyes, and many other cosmetic alterations to reduce the visible effects of aging. Dermal fillers do not fill in wrinkles but rather add volume to the desired area in order to reduce the appearance of wrinkles in your skin.

FDA-approved dermal fillers can last between six to 12 months before fading and requiring another injection. The lifespan and overall effectiveness of your dermal filler treatment depend on your physiological makeup which is why we recommend consulting your doctor before beginning treatment.

Most dermal fillers last between six and 12 months before they are absorbed back into the skin and the results start to fade. Typically, most FDA-approved dermal fillers are also infused with lidocaine to help minimize discomfort during and after treatment. Injecting cosmetic dermal fillers only takes a short amount of time to complete, and most patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately after treatment.

For more information on dermal fillers or to request an appointment, please don’t hesitate to contact us today at (580) 221-7500.

Coolsculpting

Here at Life’s Cycle, we are proud to specialize in CoolSculpting. We serve and the surrounding communities.

CoolSculpting will target fat cells and not damage the skin or surrounding tissues. This treatment is FDA cleared, and we are so happy to help patients get the body they have always wanted. The procedure is non-surgical and is a fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all the efforts, such as diet and exercise, that you have made to get rid of them.

We understand that there are areas on your body that seem to retain fat no matter what you try. CoolSculpting results are proven, noticeable, and even lasting. No matter at what angle people see you, you will look amazing.

The results are not immediate. It will take a few weeks for your body to naturally process the fat and eliminate the dead cells. However, the results are long term. Unlike many creams and short-term solutions people try, CoolSculpting is long term. This is because when fat cells are treated, they are gone for good.

We want to assist you with getting the body you want and deserve. If you ever have any questions regarding CoolSculpting before you come into our office or even after you receive the treatment, we are always happy to answer them. Our plastic surgeons will assist you with this treatment and will also ensure that you are in good health first.

We want you to feel completely comfortable while you are in our office at all times. Receiving treatment, big or small, can be stressful. We understand this and promise to be there for you every step of the way.

BHRT

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is used to treat both men and women experiencing imbalances or drops in their naturally-occurring hormones. Hormones are responsible for most of your essential bodily functions, so when they are disrupted in any way, cascade effects across all your systems can ensue.

Most commonly, BHRT is utilized to ease symptoms of perimenopause and menopause, although we can use them to treat a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Mental clarity
  • Low sex drive or libido
  • Incontinence
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Andropause
  • Fatigue
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Insulin resistance
  • Adrenal and thyroid disorders
  • Osteoporosis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Cancer

Symptoms that are common with menopause such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood changes, memory loss, weight gain, sleep issues, and low libido can be dramatically improved with BHRT. For many other conditions, BHRT can improve vitality, energy, mental clarity, mood, weight loss, and even muscle strength!

BHRT comes in several different forms, and at Life’s Cycle, we carefully take into consideration your symptoms, medical conditions, and history before making a recommendation for a specific treatment. Options may include:

  • BioTE® pellet therapy
  • Compounded natural hormones
  • Nutraceutical supplementation

Delivery of BHRT depends largely on the specific therapy option, but include:

  • Implanted pellets
  • Creams
  • Patches
  • Gels
  • Injections

Hormones are a vital part of maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle. No one needs to suffer the symptoms of hormone imbalance, and at Life’s Cycle, we are confident we can find the right solution for your unique needs.

If you have questions about how BHRT can help you or would like to request an appointment, call our friendly office today at (580) 221-7500!
