Gynecology Q & A
What does gynecology care include?
Gynecology care at Gyn-Care supports you through every phase of your life. Patients can schedule their first exam at age 16 and then continue seeing their OB/GYN through their entire life, to menopause and beyond.
You can rely on your Gyn-Care OB/GYN for all types of gynecology support, including:
- Wellness exams
- STD testing
- Pap smears
- Help with chronic conditions like endometriosis and fibroids
- Birth control support and counseling
- Pregnancy and childbirth care
- Menopause support
- Breast wellness checks
Your OB/GYN offers the support you need, customized for your specific needs, exactly when you need it.
How often should I have wellness exams?
Wellness exams are important for women at every stage of life. Whether you’re sexually active or not, you need regular wellness exams to check on your general reproductive system health. Your Gyn-Care OB/GYN will recommend a wellness exam frequency based on your specific needs. Most patients should have a wellness exam at least once a year.
Will I have to see a new doctor if I get pregnant?
No, you can see the same doctor after you get pregnant. At Gyn-Care, the health care providers including your doctor, are experienced in both gynecology and obstetrics. In most cases, you’ll continue to come to Gyn-Care for your pregnancy care.
Having the same health care team for both gynecology and obstetrics needs can really help you feel comfortable and secure in your care.
What gynecology symptoms require urgent care?
If you’re experiencing new gynecology symptoms of any type, it’s best to contact your Gyn-Care OB/GYN to let them know. Some symptoms that may require urgent care include:
- Dramatic changes in menstrual cycle
- Missed period
- Unusually heavy bleeding, especially blood clots, during period
- Unusually severe cramps during your period
- Smelly or discolored vaginal discharge
- Pain during sex
- Severely swollen pelvic area
- Burning during urination
- Itchiness in and around vagina
Your OB/GYN can resolve many of these symptoms quickly and easily, especially if you take fast action when you notice them. Ignoring symptoms like these could potentially lead to even worse problems or severe illness, so don’t hesitate to reach out for the help you need now.
