FAQs

Why do I need an appointment if I think I have a UTI (bladder infection) or yeast infection?

Any time we, as healthcare providers, need to prescribe you a medication, we need to see you. This is because many times what we think is a bladder infection or vaginal infection, is wrong. If we have the wrong diagnosis we could prescribe the wrong medication, which could make your problem worse. You could also have a reaction to a medication that you didn’t even need to take. It is safer and you will get better faster if you let us examine you and do appropriate testing to ensure we are treating you correctly.

When should I go to the hospital?

If you are pregnant and have any questions relating to vaginal bleeding, loss of fluid, decreased fetal movement, contractions or other pain, you should call our offices 24 hours a day and we will direct you.

If you are not pregnant and think you have an emergency, such as bleeding so heavy you are lightheaded, dizzy, have shortness of breath or chest pain you should go directly to the ER but you can always call us first 24 hours a day.

Bladder infections and vaginal infections are not emergencies but if you cannot wait until the next business day to see us, you should go to an urgent care, not an emergency room. If you call during business hours we will always fit you into our schedule if you are having an urgent problem.

I got a “call back” on my mammogram. What does that mean?

About 15-20% of mammograms need additional views. This could be because the pictures were inadequate or because the radiologist saw something they want to take a closer look at. Of those whom are called back only about 5% need a biopsy and only a small percentage of those that are biopsied have breast cancer. There is no need to stress about the additional views: you want the radiologist to get as much information as they need. The purpose of a mammogram is not to prevent breast cancer but to diagnose it early so that even if you are diagnosed with it — and 1 in 8 women will be in their lifetime — you have a greater than 96% of being cured!

What is the difference between a yeast infection and bacterial vaginosis (BV), and why can’t I just use over the counter medication?

Yeast and bacteria are both present in the vagina from the age of puberty until menopause. If you have an overgrowth of one or the other you will have symptoms related to that. Typically, yeast infections are itchy, have thick white discharge and no odor. BV usually has a thinner discharge, burning at times and an odor, especially after intercourse. Over the counter medications are for yeast primarily and will only make BV worse. If you aren’t certain which one you have, make an appointment. If you are certain, you have yeast, you can try the over-the-counter anti-fungal medications such as Monistat.
