Kraemer Women's Care
Wait times are horrendous! Waited with my wife over an hour from scheduled appointment. Went to the Northeast location.You can never speak with a real person...only a voicemail. They don't always call you back within 24 hours.The people upfront sit behind a closed glass enclosure which makes the experience very impersonal and uninviting in the waiting area. Plus they built their waiting room west facing with mostly windows so it gets extremely hot if your appointment is in the afternoon. There are no shades or blinds. Bad part is...it's a brand new facility in the Northeast Columbia area. We're considering going somewhere since this is our second visit with our first baby coming and it's still the same.

Lexington Women's Care
I recently moved to the area from out of state and through many online searches and reviews I chose Lexington Women's Care to schedule my new patient appointment. I phoned them on a Monday and had an appointment on Tuesday morning. I was checked in for my appointment and brought to the back office at PRECISELY the appointment time; no waiting! Each person I came in contact with were very both personable yet professional, knowledgeable and took time to listen to me and thoroughly answer all of my questions. I highly recommend them.
Tips & Advices
OB/GYNs learn to treat infertility as part of their standard education. OBGYNs who further their training in reproductive endocrinology and infertility are known as fertility specialists.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a treatment where medication is used to replace hormones a woman's body does not create naturally. Women are prescribed either estrogen alone or a mix of estrogen and progesterone. The former is given to women who've had hysterectomies, while the latter is for postmenopausal women. HRT used to be a common treatment, but doctors have prescribed it less often in recent years, as concerns of negative side effects increased.
Endometriosis is a chronic condition where uterine tissue (endometrium) grows in areas outside the uterus. This can cause extreme pain, especially around menstruation and during sex. Other symptoms include infertility, chronic fatigue, and painful urination or bowel movements during menstruation. In addition, many women with endometriosis also have allergies, frequent yeast infections, or sensitivity to certain chemicals.
Morning sickness is a common pregnancy symptom that includes nausea and occasional vomiting. Despite its name, morning sickness can occur at any time of day. The exact reason for this condition isn't clear, although most believe it results from hormone changes affecting muscle contraction and relaxation in the stomach and intestines. Another theory suggests morning sickness is caused by an abundance of intestinal bacteria in pregnant woman.
OBGYNs can prescribe or perform the following types of birth control:
  • Contraceptive pills
  • Birth control shots
  • Implants
  • Diaphragms
  • Vaginal rings
  • Cervical caps
  • Intrauterine devices
  • Tubal ligation
  • Hysterectomies
Women do not need to see an OBGYN to obtain over-the-counter forms of birth control such as male condoms, female condoms, or sponges.
