    Women's Health

    Routine gynecologic care is important to every woman's ongoing health. When you choose Novant Health Hillsdale Medical Associate as your primary medical provider, your annual gynecologic exam can be completed at the same time as your annual physical. This eliminates the need for a separate visit with a gynecologist.

    Our providers offer:

    • Routine gynecologic care including Pap smears, breast exams and contraception.
    • Colposcopy (Pap smear follow-up exams).
    • Care for common gynecologic problems including sexually transmitted infections, bacterial vaginosis and yeast infections.
    • Help with irregular periods or painful period symptoms.
    • IUD and implantable birth control rod (Nexplanon).
    • Menopause management including hormonal therapy.
    • Minor biopsies of vaginal and vulvar conditions and lesions.
    • Cryosurgery of genital warts.
    • Mammograms and bone density (DEXA) scan referrals.

    Birth Control

    Condoms can reduce the risk of unplanned pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections. Condoms are always available free of charge to our patients in our office. Ask your provider during your appointment, or call our office at 336-998-9060 to learn about this service.

    A note about affording birth control: Even if you do not have insurance, you can afford birth control! Novant Health Hillsdale Medical Associates will never turn away anyone based on ability to pay. In addition to condoms, we offer a variety of low-cost and free birth control methods. We also take Medicaid and the Medicaid Family Planning Waiver. These programs cover annual gynecologic exams, Pap smears, birth control and birth control management.

    Pap Smears

    A Pap test or Pap smear is a tool used to check for changes in cervical cells that could lead to or indicate cervical cancer. An abnormal result does not mean you have cancer, but does indicate that a colposcopy or other follow-up is needed. Click the links below to learn more about:

    Adolescent Gynecologic Care

    Our office is committed to making care for adolescents convenient, confidential and as comfortable as possible. Our providers are well trained in performing first gynecologic exams, and make every effort to explain each part of the exam and answer any questions. We use instruments and equipment appropriate for adolescents. To learn more about your first gynecologic exam, please click here.

    North Carolina law allows minors under age 18 to have confidential family planning services including birth control, pregnancy testing and sexually transmitted infection testing without parental permission. We will only discuss a teenager's exam with a parent or caregiver if the child allows, except for in the case of life-threatening conditions.
