HPV Vaccine (GARDASIL®)
Boulder Women’s Clinic is proud to offer the GARDASIL-9® HPV vaccine. GARDASIL-9® is a vaccine that helps protect against several diseases caused by Human Papillomavirus (HPV), including cervical cancer, abnormal and precancerous cervical, vaginal and vulvar lesions and genital warts. Like many immunizations, it is not possible to get these diseases from the vaccine since it does not contain any of the genetic material from the HPV virus.
Stress Urinary Incontinence
Millions of women suffer from stress urinary incontinence (SUI). This condition results in accidental loss of urine when coughing, laughing, sneezing or simply getting up from a chair. SUI is caused by weakened or damaged pelvic muscles caused by pregnancy, childbirth, obesity, trauma, radiation, prior surgeries, muscle damage or prior surgeries which can cause the bladder and urethra to relax from their normal positions. SUI is frustrating and embarrassing and causes some women to severely limit their activities.
Abnormal Uterine Bleeding
Abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) is one of the most common complaints encountered by primary care physicians and gynecologists. The condition severely impacts quality of life. The traditional primary treatment for AUB caused by submucosal myomas or endometrial polyps involved major surgery, with AUB responsible for almost 20 percent of U.S. hysterectomies. Hysteroscopic fibroid removal is at the forefront of what will become a new, less-invasive standard of care for treating AUB caused by myomas or polyps.
The NovaSure™ procedure is a non-hormonal one-time endometrial ablation treatment. This minimally invasive procedure controls heavy bleeding by using radio-frequency energy to remove the lining of the uterus.
Bone Density Screening Recommendations
The National Osteoporosis Foundation recommends routine bone density testing (DEXA) at age 65 unless you are at an increased risk of a fracture. Risk factors include height less than 5’4”, weight less than 124 pounds, a bone fracture after age 50, a parent with a hip fracture, tobacco use, more than 3 servings of alcohol a day, onset of menopause at less than 45 years old, or a chronic illness that increases your risk of fracture.
If you are under the age of 65 and have one of the risk factors listed or have other concerns about your bone density, please schedule an appointment. We are happy to review your particular risks and to discuss the appropriate timing for your bone density testing.
