Cigna Update

 

It has come to our attention that our Cigna-insured patients may have received a letter stating MAWC will be out of network as of Nov. 1, 2021. We are indeed in active negotiations with Cigna, which we hope to wrap up soon.

In addition, while we are undergoing negotiations with Cigna, it is essential to note that MAWC continues to be a participating provider with Cigna. We will immediately communicate with our patients if this changes.

You can help by calling Cigna at the number indicated in the letter to let them know how much you value MAWC as part of the network.

Thank you so much for being patient as we work with Cigna to continue delivering the unsurpassed healthcare excellence you are accustomed to with Mid-Atlantic Women's Care.

GYN Doctor serving patients in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk & Portsmouth

A Gynecology Specialists note: Following is an excellent article from the American Urogynecologic Society about bike rides, pelvic problems, and tips on avoiding them. If you have any questions, please call our GYN Clinic at (757) 312-8221.


 

Are Your Relaxing Bike Rides Taxing Your Pelvis? Try These Tips

In today's fast-paced, go-go-go world, a bike ride can help you wind down and decompress. For some woman, however, cycling causes pelvic problems such as:

• Pain and tenderness in the buttocks, genitals and pubic bone area.
• Saddle sores or other minor skin lesions in the genitals.

A review of scientific studies found that the size of your bike seat can impact the degree of discomfort experienced by women while cycling. Using a broader bicycle seat appears to help reduce the degree of soreness "down there."

In contrast, bikes with handlebars positioned lower than the bike seat were more likely to irritate the pelvis and genitals. So, before you head out for your next ride, swap out that narrow bike seat for a broader one and raise your bike's handlebars.
