Are You Experiencing Heavy Uterine Bleeding?
Are you experiencing heavy bleeding but are unsure of what is causing the issue? In some cases, the cause of the issue may be uterine cancer, uterine polyps, or a condition known as endometrial hyperplasia.
In order to diagnose the issue, obstetrician and gynecologist Dr. Mary Geldernick can perform a dilation and curettage (D&C). This diagnostic test involves inserting a speculum into the vagina so that Dr. Geldernick has a clear view of the area. A series of rods that increase in diameter will be placed used to dilate the cervix. Once the area is properly dilated, a special instrument will be used to remove a sample of the uterine tissue for testing.
Once the sample has been analyzed, Dr. Geldernick will be able to provide you with a diagnosis for what is causing your heavy bleeding and will figure out an appropriate treatment plan for managing the issue. If you are in need of a C&D, contact our office today to schedule an appointment.
