Reproductive Health Care
Getting a pap can be sterile and uncomfortable but I try to make it feel more like a warm hug. During a visit, we have time to talk about things that matter to you and hopefully you’ll leave feeling like you hung out with a friend rather than a doctor. I can provide any combination of the following: PAPs, breast exams, self breast exam instruction, blood work, STD testing, and hormone testing as well as herbal, homeopathic and supplement counseling.
-$60 for a 1/2 hour visit, $120 for an hour visit. Lab fees charged separately or billed to insurance.
Happy Periods Hormonal Balancing
Your period is your 5th vital sign, meaning if it’s off, then the symptoms you’re experiencing are messages from your body telling you it needs some attention! Massive cramps and heavy bleeding? Those mean something! You don’t have to dread your period, even if you’ve always had difficulties with it. If you’re struggling with your cycle: maybe you experience a lot of pain, sore breasts or PMS, heavy periods, irregular, short or missing periods, there is a lot we can do to get to the bottom of it and turn it around. I usually start with testing your sex hormones and stress hormones but there is a lot we can do even without labs. Whether you want to test or not, I can make diet, lifestyle and supplement recommendations to get your hormones back to a happy balance. A quick fix for some of those issues is vaginal steaming and I love to incorporate that with clients who are interested. This service can be done remotely, the hormone test is a spit test that I order to be sent to your home.
This service only works for those not on hormonal birth control.
This is not hormone replacement therapy.
