Bueso, M.D. in Houston, Texas, the team offers a comprehensive suite of women’s health services, including sick and well visits, fertility consultations, obstetrics and gynecology, birth control, weight management, treatment for menopause, and more.

Women’s health is a branch of medicine focused on diagnosing, treating, and preventing health problems in women. Men and women experience many of the same health risks. However, a woman’s reproductive system and ability to give birth presents unique challenges.
Gender-specific care, including family planning, birth control, preventive screenings, and assistance with menopause, allow you to live a healthy, active lifestyle.
Fernando Bueso, M.D., P.A. and Francisco J. Bueso, M.D. provides a variety of women’s health services onsite, including:
Visiting the doctor on a regular basis allows you to check in on your well-being. Even if you feel relatively healthy, it’s possible to have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes. Your provider can conduct an annual exam and associated screenings, or they can diagnose and treat both acute and chronic health problems, like the cold, flu, or strep throat.
If you and your partner want to start a family, consider a fertility consultation. This is especially true if you’ve tried to conceive for months without success. Depending on your health history and systems, your provider might recommend intrauterine insemination (IUI), fertility medications, or ovulation induction (OI).
Obstetrics and gynecology focus on pregnancy and reproductive health. This includes prenatal care and delivery, diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted infections, and treatment of chronic pelvic pain. Obstetrics and gynecology also include preventive screenings like Pap tests and breast exams.
If you’re sexually active but don’t want to have children, it’s important to invest in birth control. Fernando Bueso, M.D., P.A. and Francisco J. Bueso, M.D. offer several types of birth control, including oral medications, intrauterine devices (IUDs), and even surgery.
If you’re overweight or obese, you’re also more likely to experience heart disease, diabetes, or chronic joint pain. Weight management services like nutritional counseling and exercise guidance can help you safely shed pounds. Over time, this allows you to achieve your health and wellness goals and a better quality of life.
Menopause occurs when you go a full year without having a menstrual cycle. This is a normal part of a woman’s aging process, but it can also present uncomfortable symptoms, including night sweats, hot flashes, mood swings, and pain during intercourse. Your provider can help you minimize these symptoms using effective, integrative means.
If you want to live a long and healthy life, it’s important to make a women’s health appointment at least once a year. Following a physical exam, review of your medical history, and a series of laboratory tests, your provider can develop a custom care plan that aligns with your needs and goals.
