Schedule Your Mammogram!

Early Detection Plan

What’s More Effective Than Tying Tubes

Women
Choose Nexplanon! Implants are quite effective, failing only 0.05 percent of the time, according to the Association of Reproductive Health Professionals. The implant works by releasing a form of the hormone progestin,​ which suppresses​ ovulation, into the bloodstream. The matchstick-sized rod is inserted between the bicep and tricep. Nexplanon continuously releases a hormone to prevent pregnancy for up to three years. Three minutes for insertion gives you three years of protection from pregnancy.

No more remembering to take your pill or ordering extra pills for vacation. Get Nexplanon inserted and forget about it. Get back to doing things you enjoy!

The doctors at Clarksville Women’s Center insert this implant. Call and make your appointment at (931) 647-7321. Come in and talk the doctor. Get your questions answered. See if Nexplanon is right for you!

Waiting to Cut The Cord

Umbilical Cord_08232015

The World Health Organization has endorsed waiting to clamp the umbilical cord for at least one minute after a baby is born.

A couple of extra minutes attached to the umbilical cord at birth may translate into a small boost in neurodevelopment several years later, a study suggests.

Children whose cords were cut more than three minutes after birth had slightly higher social skills and fine motor skills than those whose cords were cut within 10 seconds.

Dr. Deepti Pruthi promotes delaying the immediate clamp of the umbilical cord. Ask her for more details during your next OB appointment. If you would like to schedule an appointment with Dr. Deepti Pruthi at The Clarksville Women’s Center, call the office at (931) 647-7321.
