What Does “Artemis” Mean?

$

Artemis

The name Artemis illustrates our mission. Artemis is the ancient Greek goddess of the moon and the hunt. While the moon is a metaphor for the menstrual cycle, the archer reminds us of the importance of focus (attention) and aim (intention) when it comes to our health. She represents feminine strength, confidence, and independence. She placed great value on her freedom – freedom to ask questions, seek solutions, and confidently pursue her own path to complete wellness.

About Artemis Center for Menstrual Disorders & Gynecology Services in Lockport NY

Serving Western New York Since 2000

Artemis Center for Menstrual Disorders is a small, personalized gynecology practice that serves patients in Western New York. Julie Madejski, MD, and her compassionate team provide the latest advances and least-invasive options in the prevention and treatment of gynecologic problems, specializing in abnormal uterine bleeding. The caring, inclusive team welcomes adolescents, women of all ages, and LGBTQ individuals.

What is a Menstrual Disorder?

Women menstruate from about age 12 to about age 51.

A normal menstrual cycle is 24 to 38 days in length from the start of one period to the start of the next with the duration of bleeding up to 8 days. There is a regular variation from cycle to cycle (shortest to longest) of up to 9 days. There is no bleeding between menstrual periods.

Abnormal uterine bleeding in the reproductive years would be defined as a cycle shorter than 24 days or longer than 38, lasting more than 8 days, having 10 or more days of variation in cycle length, or bleeding between menstrual periods. It is also abnormal to have uterine bleeding after menopause.

If you have a menstrual disorder, you should see a gynecologist and get to the root cause.
