It is recommended that you see an obstetrician early. At the first visit pregnancy is confirmed, a prenatal vitamin is prescribed, and a plan for prenatal care initiated. Also information about pregnancy and office/hospital services are provided.

Most women have an ultrasound between 10-13 weeks to confirm due date and provide first trimester genetic testing called sequential screening. A second ultrasound is performed between 16-20 weeks for fetal anatomy and further genetic screening.

Laboratory tests combined with ultrasound can provide genetic testing for spine defects, down’s syndrome (trisomy 21), and trisomy 18. This screening can be performed both in the first and second trimester (before 20 weeks gestation). All women are offered genetic screening. Women over age 35 are also offered amniocentesis for other genetic disorders if desired.

The changes of pregnancy are numerous and every woman has different experiences. It is recommended that any concerns or questions are discussed at your prenatal visits. It is helpful to make a list before each visit. Also many resources are available. An excellent source is a website for pregnancy called

Most women recognize movement between 18-22 weeks. It is recommended that fetal movement should be felt daily after about 26-28 weeks. If movement is decreased it is best to eat something with sugar and lie down. This increases fetal movement and can be reassuring. If movement is not present or does not improve with those measures it is recommended to call your obstetrician.

It is recommended to time your contraction pains. After 36 weeks it is recommended to notify your obstetrician if contractions are regular for one hour or if there is any bleeding or possible leakage of fluid. Before 36 weeks it is best to contact your obstetrician to rule out preterm labor.

The indications for cesarean delivery (c/s) are numerous; however the most common reasons include previous cesarean delivery, abnormal presentation of fetus (breech), or fetal intolerance of labor. It is recommended to discuss indications for c/s during your prenatal visits so that questions can be answered before labor ensues.

Multiple gestations are considered to be at increased risk for growth problems, early delivery (prematurity), and certain maternal conditions. Additional resources and literature are usually provided and more frequent prenatal visits can be expected. It is recommended that you increase your calorie intake approximately 300 kcal/day and follow guidelines provided by your obstetrician.

Any bleeding in pregnancy should be evaluated by your obstetrician. Usually an ultrasound will rule out miscarriage if bleeding occurs before 20 weeks. Abnormalities of the placenta can result in bleeding and should be evaluated after 20 weeks. If you experience bleeding, call your obstetrician, avoid intercourse, and limit physical exertion until the cause can be determined.

Yes. Heartburn results from the many changes that occur in pregnancy. Antacids and over the counter medications such as Pepcid or Prilosec are safe to take in pregnancy. Prescription medications are also available.

You should have been provided a list of safe medications during pregnancy. It is recommended to avoid aspirin products and nonsteroidals (Ibuprofen and Naproxen). Tylenol products are allowed but it is recommended to discuss any medications with your obstetrician.

Yes. Your obstetrician should provide a letter to your dentist. X-rays, anesthesia, pain medications, and certain antibiotics are of little risk to your pregnancy.

One of the many laboratory tests in pregnancy includes blood group and typing. Women who have rh negative blood are at risk to develop antibodies to future fetuses resulting in severe complications. Rhogam is a blood product that is administered at 26-28 weeks and repeated after delivery if newborn is rh positive. This prevents the production of antibodies.

Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis (Tdap); & Tetanus and Diphtheria (Td)

Health-care personnel should administer a dose of Tdap during each pregnancy irrespective of the patient’s prior history of receiving Tdap. To maximize the maternal antibody response and passive antibody transfer to the infant, optimal timing for Tdap administration is between 27 and 36 weeks of gestation although Tdap may be given at any time during pregnancy. For women not previously vaccinated with Tdap, if Tdap is not administered during pregnancy, Tdap should be administered immediately postpartum. Tdap vaccination will reduce Pertussis infection in newborns and young children.

This is an early genetic screening ultrasound performed between 11-13 weeks of pregnancy. This test identifies a potential increased risk of genetic abnormalities known as Trisomy-13 or Trisomy-18 or Down’s. Follow-up maternal blood tests are also available to further screen for these abnormalities. Nuchal Translucency is recommended for all pregnant women who desire testing and should only be performed by a certified Ultrasonographer. Baldwin OBGYN proudly provides this screening test.

Most women ages 18 to 50 need 1000mg of calcium daily. Menopausal women need 1200mg of calcium plus vitamin d daily. Those who are not on hormone therapy should increase to 15oomg daily. Calcium is necessary for healthy bone development and fracture prevention. It also maintains healthy nerve, teeth, and heart tissue.

Osteoporosis is a disease that weakens the bone structure making the bone fragile and at risk for fracture. Tips for maintaining healthy bones include adequate intake of calcium, regular exercise, avoiding smoking, and early screening for menopausal women.

All women over the age of 65 or who have risk factors need to be screened for osteoporosis. Risk factors include estrogen deficiency, smoking, family history, personal history of fracture, conditions that affect absorption of calcium, and history of steroid use. It is best to discuss your individual risks with your health care provider. Please call 251-424-1100 for more information.

The most important screening tool for breast disease includes three steps: annual mammogram screening, annual breast exam, and self breast exams monthly. It is also recommended that women avoid smoking, maintain a healthy weight, exercise regularly, and discuss individual risk factors with their healthcare provider.

It is recommended that women have a baseline mammogram around the age of 35 followed by yearly mammograms at age 40. There is really no age limit to mammogram screening.

First of all it is quite common for women to have changes in the breast tissue especially related to menstruation. Women who are not menopausal are encouraged to repeat an exam after their next period. If the lump persists or exam remains different, one should see their healthcare provider. Those women who are menopausal, it is best to be evaluated by their healthcare provider anytime that a lump is suspected. In addition to mammogram a breast ultrasound is often performed and a consultation with a surgeon will likely be recommended. Remember- most changes and/or lumps found on exam are not cancer.

It is recommended that girls ages 13-18 have an introductory visit with a gynecologist. A pelvic exam is not recommended at this time unless the teen is having menstrual abnormalities or is sexually active. This visit allows opportunity for abstinent-based sex education, std prevention, contraceptive management if needed, and establishing a physician-patient relationship for young girls.

Gardasil is a vaccination for prevention of cervical cancer and human papilloma virus (hpv) infection. It is a series of 3 injections and is recommended between the ages of 9-26. Nearly 80% of all cervical cancers are caused by this hpv virus which is the most common std infection affecting teens today. Hpv infection also causes over 90% of genital warts.

Millions of women suffer from incontinence (leakage) of urine. Because treatment is directly related to the cause of the leakage it is best to discuss this with a gynecologist or urologist. Both medication and surgery can be effective in controlling leakage.

Overactive bladder results in urgency, frequency and often leakage of urine. Women tend to wake up often during the night to urinate. It is the result of bladder muscular spasm and best treated with bladder training and medication.

Weakened or damaged pelvic muscles result in decrease control of urine when there is increased abdominal pressure such as with coughing, laughing, or simple lifting. This results in accidental leakage of urine and significantly limits physical activity for millions of women. Treatment options include both surgical and nonsurgical procedures to correct the pelvic muscle weakness. Ask your gynecologist about available options for you.

It is estimated that nearly 10 million women suffer from menorrhagia (excessive monthly bleeding). This often results in anemia (low blood count), fatigue and cramping, missed days at work, and social embarrassment due to soiling clothes. Treatment options range from medication to surgical intervention. Endometrial ablation (novasure) is one surgical option that is an outpatient procedure resulting in the destruction of the uterine lining. Over 90% of women successfully control their monthly bleeding without hysterectomy. Contact your healthcare provider to discuss individual treatment options today.

In addition to oral contraceptives (birth control pills) women can also choose a trans-dermal patch or a vaginal ring. All of these result in effective prevention of pregnancy as well as cycle control. Depo provera is an injection administered every 3 months and usually results in no monthly periods. Mirena and paraguard are intrauterine devices (iud) that provide long term contraception but is reversible upon removal. Barrier methods for contraception include condoms, diaphragms, and spermicides.

Menopause is the life stage where estrogen production decreases and women are no longer fertile. During the years before menopause women often experience a transitional phase during which symptoms including hot flashes, night sweats, mood changes, and vaginal dryness often occur despite monthly periods. This perimenopausal phase can last years and often affect women in many different ways. It is best to discuss these changes with your gynecologist.

Most likely the answer is yes; however it is recommended that women consult with a gynecologist to review individual risks and indications for hormone replacement. Absolute contraindications for hormone use include an active breast cancer or active blood clots. Many other treatment options are available for those who are not candidates for hormone supplementation.

Many women suffer from painful intercourse (dyspareunia). Often times correcting for vaginal dryness with lubricants such as k-y or astroglide can reduce discomfort. It is best to discuss persistent pain with your gynecologist in order to rule out infection or pelvic abnormalities.

PMS is a group of symptoms that include physical (cramps, breast pain), emotional (tearful, mood swings) and behavioral (food cravings, fatigue) changes. These tend to occur prior to and during monthly menstruation. Although 80% of women have some changes during their cycle, as many as 10-20% of women find that these symptoms affect their lives, work, and relationships. If so -it is recommended to discuss these changes with your healthcare provider.

Yes. Many women successfully treat the symptoms of PMS with nonsteroidals (ibuprofen or Naproxen products), calcium supplementation, reduction in caffeine, and regular exercise. If these are not beneficial then it is best to talk with your healthcare provider. Other treatments include birth control pills and/ or mild antidepressants.

Abnormal pap smears can reveal changes in the cervical cells ranging from infection/inflammation to cancer. Most abnormal pap smears do not show cancer cells; however, all women with abnormal results should have regular follow-up appointments.

Dysplasia is one of the abnormal cell changes that are diagnosed by pap smear. Although it is not a cancer of the cervix, it can represent an increased risk of pre-cancer when the dysplasia is moderate to severe. Usually a biopsy (colposcopy) of the cervix is needed to accurately diagnose cervical dysplasia. Women with a history of abnormal pap smears should always have regular pap screening.

The issue of greatest concern is that oral hormones pass through the liver in the process of metabolism and a result of this liver pass, the liver increases the production of clotting factors. This is why increased risks of stroke and heart attack are reported in women taking oral hormones. While trans-dermal routes (patches and gels) also avoid this, there are times that women do not get the relief of symptoms and would benefit from Pellet therapy. Estrogen alone does not impart the same sense of well-being and/or increased energy level that a combination of estrogen and testosterone produces. Oral testosterone has not only been tied to an increased risk of breast cancer, but usually is not effective.

No. Most insurances will cover certain generic brands of hormone replacement and often will partially cover hormone injections. We do provide injection therapy in the office and will be happy to advise which treatment is best for you

Yes BUT it is very important to include progesterone therapy as well. Progesterone is the hormone that will reduce bleeding but also avoid unopposed estrogen exposure which can result in the risk of Uterine Cancer.

Hormone Replacement Therapy is key to Menopausal Management and can play a major role in maintaining quality of life, reduction of cardio-vascular events, reduction in Colon Ca, prevention of Osteoporosis, and alleviating the hot flashes, night sweats, mood changes, and vaginal dryness that so many women experience. Menopause is heralded by the absence of menstrual cycles for a full 12 months, surgical removal of ovaries, chemotherapy/radiation ablation of ovarian function, or blood hormone level abnormalities. Peri-Menopause often precedes menopause and can result in extreme symptoms, mood changes, loss of concentration, weight changes, and often irregular bleeding. At Baldwin OBGYN we are committed to Excellence in Women’s Health and have been a leader in Menopausal Management. We are now providing Traditional Hormone Replacement, Alternative Menopausal Treatment, Bio-identical Hormone Therapy, Comprehensive Hormonal Testing, and Hormone Pellet Therapy.
