Services we offer include:
HPV, also known as human papillomavirus, is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI). It can be contracted by having vaginal and anal sex with someone who is infected, and more importantly, it can be passed even if the infected person has no symptoms or signs.
While HPV can go away on its own without causing any serious health issues. However, it can cause problems like genital warts and even cancer. The HPV vaccine is safe, effective, and it can protect against diseases caused by the HPV virus when received at the right age.
Depo Provera Injection
Depo-Provera is a brand name for medroxyprogesterone acetate, which is a contraceptive injection that contains progestin. It acts by suppressing your ovulation and thus preventing your ovaries from releasing eggs. On top of that, Depo-Provera keeps the sperm from reaching the egg by thickening your cervical mucus.
Depo-Provera is done in cases when you don’t want to take a birth control pill every day, you want to avoid using estrogen, and in cases when the patient has health issues such as seizures, anemia, and sickle cell disease. Usually, Depo-Provera is given every three months, and in a year of typical use, only six out of a hundred women will get pregnant. This risk is significantly reduced in women who get the injection every three months.
The flu vaccine, also known as the influenza vaccine, protects you against infection by influenza viruses. Contrary to the popular misconception, the effects typically last through one flu season rather than lasting for a lifetime.
This vaccine is recommended for everyone except infants. Children, adults, and the elderly will significantly benefit from a flu vaccine as it drastically lowers the risks of catching an influenza virus. Pregnant patients can also get the flu vaccine, and more importantly, immunization of pregnant women increases their chances of going through a successful full-term pregnancy.
B12 shots are usually used as a means to prevent or treat vitamin B12 deficiencies. This particular vitamin makes new protein in your body by helping it to use fat and carbohydrates for energy. It is also essential for keeping your cells, blood, and nerves in an equilibrium.
B12 deficiency usually occurs with people who struggle with certain health conditions, mainly cancer, infections, poor nutrition, and intestinal problems. Many patients feel that B12 injections even without deficiency increases their energy level.
