Our providers at AWH specialize in gynecological care throughout a women’s life. From abnormal periods and contraception to menopausal symptoms we are here for you.


When you have gynecological concerns schedule a problem visit where we can discuss and help develop a management plan. Gynecological concerns include (but are not limited to) contraception, abnormal bleeding, painful and/or heavy periods, vaginal or vulvar concerns, urinary complaints, breast issues along with the following below.


Adolescent Health

The transition between childhood and adulthood brings about a lot of changes and, in turn, a lot of questions. We encourage teens and preteens to visit AWH for a routine exam and a chance to talk about the influences and choices that they will face throughout the teenage years.



Although menopause is a natural part of a woman’s life as she reaches her late 40’s and 50’s, it comes with physical and emotional changes that AWH can help you manage. Because menopausal symptoms are different for every woman, the treatment should be too.  AWH is here to help make your individualized treatment plan.

Symptoms of the perimenopausal and menopausal transition include hot flashes and night sweats, vaginal dryness, and sexual concerns. If you have questions or concerns regarding menopausal symptoms please talk with your provider.


Sexual Health

The World Health Organization defines sexual health as a state of physical, emotional, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality; it is not merely the absence of disease, dysfunction or infirmity. Sexual health requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence.


 General Health

We recommend an annual gynecological visit to discuss preventative health. This is an excellent opportunity to discuss how to maintain a healthy lifestyle and minimize health risks.
