If your Pap smear results come back positive, your OB/GYN performs an in-office colposcopy to evaluate your cervix, look for abnormalities, and take a biopsy of abnormal tissue.


During a hysterectomy, your OB/GYN inserts a thin, flexible tube into your vagina, through your cervix, and into your uterus to evaluate the lining of your uterus and biopsy abnormal tissue.

They perform this procedure in-office to determine the underlying cause of your abnormal bleeding.

Placement of long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs)

Endometrial ablation

Endometrial ablation is a minimally invasive procedure that ablates — heats — the endometrial lining of your uterus to treat abnormal bleeding.

Loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP)

LEEP is an in-office procedure in which your OB/GYN removes a thin layer of tissue from your cervix. Your OB/GYN may perform this procedure to diagnose or treat polyps, genital warts, or precancerous cells. 


Ultrasounds are imaging tests Bay Area Physicians for Women uses for obstetrics and gynecology.
