Here at Greenville Ob/Gyn, we want to help make this transition into womanhood as easy and seamlessly as possible. The best way to do this is to open the door to those difficult conversations and address any concerns head on.

Long before a woman becomes pregnant, she has a vision of what motherhood will look like. It is a thought that is filled with love, baby coos, cuddles, and enjoyment. Sure, they know it will be exhausting and sometimes even frustrating to be a new parent, but the warm fuzzy feelings they imagine always outweigh the bad. For some moms, this euphoric experience is very real and they fall right into their mother goose mode without a hiccup along the way. For others...

Osteoporosis is a condition which affects primarily women over the age of 60. The disease can affect men and younger individuals, but when women experience menopause, the lack of estrogen dramatically affects our bone growth and women typically lose 20% of their bone mass 5-7 years after menopause. This is why it is important for women to understand the disease, how they can prevent it and how they can avoid painful fractures if they do suffer from osteoporosis.

Today marks the beginning of Infertility Awareness Week. Here at Greenville OB/GYN, a division of Physician’s East, we feel that infertility is an important topic of discussion. About 1 in 8 women will have trouble conceiving or carrying a pregnancy to full term. For women or couples trying to get pregnant, the process may take and sadly some will never get to experience it at all. It’s a tough course to navigate and that’s why we think talking about it is important.

If your child is between the ages of 9 and 14 and you are like most parents, you have probably noticed some increased tension in the house. If there is one thing adults can all agree on, it’s that adolescence can be a stressful and confusing time for everyone. As our children reach puberty, constant growth and change are inevitable both physically and mentally. They are experiencing hormonal changes, increased social pressures and body image struggles, and they are loaded with questions they might feel too embarrassed to address.

Your colorectal health isn’t usually the topic of conversation at dinner parties and probably for good reason, but that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t be talking about it. The entire month of March is dedicated to just that – a conversation about colon cancer and how you can prevent it. Colon Cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States for cancers that affect both men and women. Colon cancer screenings are unique in that they not only screen for polyps and cancerous cells, but they actually prevent colon cancer.

March is dedicated to Endometriosis Awareness and since this disease goes undiagnosed for many women, awareness is needed. The average woman with endometriosis suffers for 10 years before a diagnosis is ever made. 1 out of 10 women suffer from this incurable disease and despite countless studies, scientists have found no known cause for endometriosis.
