Pelvic Prolapse is when an organ becomes displaced, or slips down in the body. Women affected by pelvic prolapse sometimes refer to it as “dropped bladder”, “fallen uterus”, or "rectal bulge". These conditions are referred to by the medical profession as “cystocele”, “uterine prolapse” or “rectocele”.

For more information regarding this procedureplease call our office.

Intrauterine Device (IUD) is a small object that is inserted through the cervix and placed in the uterus to prevent pregnancy. A small string hangs down from the IUD into the upper part of the vagina. The IUD is not noticeable during intercourse. IUDs can last 1-10 years. They work by changing the lining of the uterus and fallopian tubes affecting the movements of eggs and sperm and so that fertilization does not occur. IUDs are 99.2-99.9% effective as birth control. They do not protect against sexually transmitted infections, including HIV/AIDS.

For more information regarding IUDs please visit www.mirena.com, www.paragard.com, and/or www.liletta.com and consult your physician.

Please call our office for more information about these procedures or to schedule an appointment.
