Gynecology Q&A

What is gynecology?

Gynecology is an area of medical practice focused on addressing a woman’s reproductive health. A wide range of topics and needs fall under the umbrella of gynecology. 

Preventive health is an important component of gynecology. Your Antheia Gynecology specialist works with you to ensure you get the screenings you need to stay healthy. 

They provide routine well-woman exams, and there is always time built-in for you to ask questions or express concerns. 

Diagnostics is also an important part of gynecologic care. If you notice any unusual changes related to your reproductive health, your doctor can perform a comprehensive diagnostic exam to help you find answers. 

Antheia Gynecology also offers advanced treatment options for the full scope of gynecologic needs. Whether you have a simple urinary tract infection or a complex reproductive condition, your doctor is there to guide you toward the options best suited for your needs. 

How does gynecology change as I age?

All women should work with a trusted gynecologist throughout their lives. Parents should bring their daughters to see a gynecologist in the early teenage years. 

These early visits are an opportunity for young women to build a trusting relationship with their gynecologist, and to learn about topics like birth control and sexually transmitted disease (STD) prevention, and find answers for irregular periods or excessively heavy periods. 

As you enter early adulthood, your needs might shift to finding the right birth control to suit your lifestyle. You may have questions about sexual health, and you’ll need to learn the proper techniques for performing breast self-exams. 

Many women have questions about fertility and family planning. You might want to know which birth control options give you the option of regaining fertility if you decide to start a family. Other potential concerns include abnormal bleeding, abnormal Pap smears, and vaginal infections.  

Women nearing or entering menopause have a unique set of needs. This is a time when you might want to explore hormone replacement therapy or other options to ease menopause symptoms like MonaLisa Touch® for vaginal wellness and to address painful intercourse.

Lichen sclerosus and other conditions can arise at this stage of life. Even after you move beyond menopause, you still need to come in for well-woman exams to preserve your health and wellness. 

When should I schedule a visit with my gynecologist?

Most women benefit from an annual well-woman exam. These routine visits are a chance to check for tissue abnormalities that could indicate a serious medical condition. 

Well-woman exams are also an opportunity to ask questions or discuss areas of concern with your doctor. No topics are off-limits, and your gynecologist encourages you to be open and frank in order to make the most of your well-woman care. Certain surgical procedures can be performed in-house, as needed. 

Of course, you should always call to book a visit if you notice changes or symptoms. Schedule an appointment at Antheia Gynecology over the phone or online today.
