What Does a Gynecological Doctor Do?
With the goal of being here for all of a woman’s medical needs, it’s only natural that we offer gynecological services. A gynecologist is a highly trained physician who specializes in women’s health and focuses on the female reproductive system.
Gynecologists deal with a variety of issues, such as pregnancy, childbirth, fertility problems, hormonal issues, menstruation, and sexually transmitted infections. Here are some of the sub-specialties we also concentrate on:
What to Expect
If you’ve never been to a gynecologist before, you may be wondering what you should expect during your upcoming appointment. Because gynecologists treat so many different conditions, all gynecological appointments aren’t the same. That means what you should expect from your appointment depends largely on the purpose of your visit and your current medical situation.
Whenever you schedule an appointment at one of our facilities, you can always expect to be treated warmly and with the utmost respect. If you’re nervous or uncomfortable for any reason, you’re welcome to have a loved one or friend attend your appointment with you.
Difference Between Obstetrics and Gynecology
Some people use the terms “obstetrician” and “gynecologist” interchangeably, but they refer to two different types of doctors. Gynecology involves addressing issues stemming from female reproductive organs regardless of whether a person with those organs identifies as female. Obstetrics is a specialty that revolves around pregnancy and childbirth.
To understand the difference better, remember this – every obstetrician is a gynecologist, but every gynecologist isn’t necessarily an obstetrician.
When to See a Gynecologist
Gynecologists treat girls and women of all ages. In general, it’s wise for females to start seeing a gynecologist at least once per year when they reach the age of 13-15 years-old. By establishing a relationship early on, it allows a female to be comfortable talking to her doctor about the issues she experiences as her body and sexuality change and evolve throughout her lifetime. It also enables the woman’s doctor to provide lifelong guidance regarding the woman’s overall health and well-being.
Some women shouldn’t wait for their annual screening to see their gynecologist. If you have a concern or you’re experiencing symptoms such as pelvic pain, vaginal discomfort, or abnormal bleeding, you should make an appointment to see your gynecologist immediately.
Common Gynecology Problems
As we mentioned earlier, gynecologists treat a wide array of issues related to female reproductive organs. Here are some common problems gynecologists handle on a regular basis:
