Gynecology Q & A
What is gynecology?
While men and women share many commonalities in regard to health and wellness, they also have distinct sets of medical needs. Gynecology is the area of medical practice focused on women’s health.
Most young women begin seeing a gynecologist as they move through puberty and begin their menstrual cycles. Over time, that professional relationship deepens and expands as their needs change. Having a trusted gynecologist makes it easier to navigate the waters of family planning, disease prevention, and treatment for a wide range of gynecology issues.
If you’re like most women, you live a busy life filled with obligations to others. Your gynecology appointments are a time to focus on your own health and wellness. Every effort is made to make your visits comfortable and rewarding, and to strengthen the bond between you and your women’s health specialist. Although Unified Premier Women’s Care offers numerous doctors to choose from, once you’ve found a good match you’ll always see the same provider.
What type of health issues do gynecologists address?
Gynecologists provide a range of preventive, diagnostic, and treatment services. Some of the issues they commonly address include:
- Abnormal menstruation
- Hormone disorders
- Sexually transmitted disease
- Fertility issues
- Chronic conditions of the reproductive system
- Sexual health
- Reproductive cancers
- Birth control
This is not a comprehensive list. The gynecologists at Unified Premier Women’s Care offer state-of-the-art services across the full scope of women’s health needs.
How can a gynecologist help with family planning?
You might think of family planning as nothing more than birth control services, but that’s just part of the process. Comprehensive family planning involves the process of thoughtfully determining how many children to have as well as the spacing of those births.
Birth control certainly plays a role in that process, and your gynecologist guides you through the available options. Finding the right method for your unique body chemistry and lifestyle is important.
Supporting and enhancing your reproductive health also involves other services, like STD screening, hormonal balance, and sexual health. Lifestyle modification is another essential part of staying healthy enough to move through pregnancy with ease.
