Midlothian, VA’s Highest Quality Gynecological Treatments
Whether you are experiencing discomfort or other adverse symptoms, or you want to discuss your contraceptive options, we will give you the information you need to make healthy decisions. At West Gynecology, we provide individualized treatment for patients from teen to postmenopausal ages.
At West Gynecology, we recommend women begin receiving annual exams at 21 years of age, or after you become sexually active. During your exam, you will have the privacy you deserve as we keep track of your development, administer breast cancer screenings and pap smears, and address any concerns you may have regarding your reproductive health, menstrual cycle, and more. Our knowledgeable, caring staff will work to make you feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible, so you can freely share any questions you may have and receive the information you need to best take control of your health.
There are many options available when it comes to contraception. Our doctors will work with you to determine which is best for your individual needs. We can provide prescriptions for pill, patch, injection, implant, and IUD (including Mirena) birth control options. We welcome you to ask any questions you may have about your contraceptive options, and we will instruct you on how to properly use contraceptives so you have minimal side effects and maximum protection.
Screening & Treatment for Sexually Transmitted Diseases
If you believe you may have contracted a sexually transmitted disease, visit us immediately. We will provide screenings so you can get an accurate diagnosis, and then we will prescribe the treatment you need to either eliminate the disease if it is curable, or to keep symptoms manageable and under control if it is incurable.
If you suffer from severe premenstrual syndrome (PMS) or premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), you may experience extreme mood swings, intense emotions including anger and depression, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, physical pain, or appetite changes. These symptoms can impact your life every month. However, there are many options for treatment that we can discuss with you, so we can find the right choice to put you back in control.
If you are struggling with hot flashes, fatigue, night sweats, depression, difficulties in your sexual life, or other symptoms due to menopause, we can provide treatment to control your hormones and make this transitional period in your life smoother and more comfortable.
Vaginal infections, such as yeast infections, can cause intense discomfort that interferes with your quality of life. At West Gynecology, we have the diagnostic tools, including pap smears, to determine the source of the infection and then provide the treatment you need to help you feel like yourself again.
Menstrual Abnormality Evaluations
Endometriosis is a condition in which the lining inside the uterus begins to grow outside of the uterus, producing lesions. This can cause excessive bleeding and severe pain during your menstrual cycle. If you are experiencing these conditions, we can prescribe several different treatment options.
LUPRON DEPOT® is a prescription medication taken for one or three months to control pain and bleeding and reduce lesions. NovaSure is a procedure performed in-office for women who will not be having more children in the future, to control the symptoms of endometriosis. Our experienced gynecologists will work with you to determine the best course of action for your needs and lifestyle.
Gynecologic Procedures & Surgeries
At West Gynecology, we provide a wide range of procedures in-office, so you can experience comfortable care in our state-of-the-art facility. These procedures include Colposcopy, LEEP, D&C, Sonohysterogram and Hysterosalpingogram.
We also perform gynecologic surgeries at the Surgery Center at Johnston-Willis, including Diagnostic/Operative Laparoscopy, Robotic Laparoscopic Surgery, and Hysterectomy by da Vinci Robot®. Dr. Lisa West is certified in using the da Vinci Robot®, which allows for minimally invasive surgeries.
Vaginal Rejuvenation with the MonaLisa Touch
MonaLisa Touch® is a treatment provided at Club West Med Spa, the day spa and medical spa also owned by Dr. Lisa West and located just upstairs. It is a minimally invasive laser procedure used to treat vaginal atrophy, which causes vaginal discomfort. This procedure is highly effective and painless. It can correct vaginal pH balance as well as provide toning and elasticity.
