As you come out of menopause and embark on your journey into retirement, your health should be one of your primary focuses. Many people believe that it is no longer necessary to visit a gynecologist after the age of 60, however, contrary to popular belief, it is still extremely important to visit a gynecologist on a yearly or biyearly basis as a preventative measure. During your appointment, we will conduct a regular pelvic and breast exam to ensure that you are living the highest quality life while addressing any symptoms you may be having. Given that women over the age of 60 have a higher risk for diseases, such as cancer, we will discuss your individual situation in regards to a pap smear and mammogram while talking you through any other health concerns you might be having. For women experiencing painful intercourse, dryness, vaginal laxity and urinary incontinence, Rashti Women’s Care is the only OGBYN practice in Santa Barbara and the surrounding area to offer a new breakthrough laser technology that helps restore your vagina. Our ultimate goal is to listen to you and help guide you in a direction that will ensure that you are healthy and happy for the rest of your life.
