We understand that the prospect of undergoing a gynecological procedure can be a source of anxiety for some women. Even procedures that are relatively minor in nature should be carefully thought through and considered. After all, a woman’s reproductive health is nothing to take lightly. We prioritize communication and education here at Gynecology Associates of Gwinnett. Knowledge and understanding can go a long way towards making a woman feel more comfortable and confident leading up to her appointment. Our board-certified gynecologists wanted to take some time to explain how some of our most common gynecological procedures are performed.
Endometrial ablation is a gynecological procedure that we perform to help women who are experiencing abnormally heavy menstrual bleeding. In some cases, women may turn to this procedure as an alternative to a hysterectomy. An endometrial ablation endometrial ablation is an office-based procedure where the uterine lining is burned, or ablated, to decrease and likely halt vaginal bleeding.
Female sterilization is a long-term method of contraception for women who have never wanted to become pregnant or for those who have completed having children. We perform female sterilization with a procedure known as tubal ligation. Sometimes referred to as tubal sterilization (or having your “tubes tied”), tubal ligation involves using surgery to either block or seal the fallopian tubes. Once completed, eggs will no longer be able to move freely to the uterus and sperm will not be able to enter the blocked or sealed tubes.
FemTouch™ Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation
FemTouch™ can be an outstanding non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation solution for women who experience common vaginal health issues like vaginal laxity, vaginal dryness, and painful or unsatisfying sex. It can also help women who experience stress urinary incontinence. During the procedure, we use advanced fractional CO2 laser technology to gently ablate damaged vaginal tissue. We insert a sterilized device into the vagina and carefully move it in a 360-degree pattern to ensure that the entire vaginal canal is treated. The result is a healthier, restored vaginal wall.
