Gynecology is a specialty within healthcare that focuses on women's health, diseases that affect women, and the physiological function of the female reproductive system. As such, services range from birth control to robot-assisted surgery. Between those services are the diagnosis, treatment, and care for illness, injury, and disease. One of the most important functions of gynecology is that it serves as a resource for women who seek to know more about their health so that they can make informed decisions.
For the first visit, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists suggests that young women first see a gynecologist between the ages of 13-15. Typically, a pelvic exam is not required for teens. Usually, women see their gynecologist every year for a well-woman exam. A well woman examination is an exam offered to women to review elements of their reproductive health. It is recommended once a year for most women. The exam includes a breast examination, a pelvic examination, and a pap smear but may also include other procedures.
This is basically a women's wellness exam. A well woman examination is an exam offered to women to review elements of their reproductive health. The exam includes a breast examination, a pelvic examination, and a pap smear but may also include other procedures. This is also the time when women have an opportunity to discuss with a gynecologist sexual health, contraception, irregularities in their reproductive health, pain, and other topics that may require further examination.
A gynecologist is a comprehensive resource for women who want to find professional information about products, conditions, and topics that affect their lives.
The pelvic region is a very comprehensive part of the female body. It holds the reproductive system, digestive system, part of the nervous system, and many other features. A pelvic exam allows your doctor to test for fibroids or STDs such as HPV or HIV. It also allows the doctor to address issues such as pain, irregular menstruation, pregnancy, birth control, and much more.
