Gynecology Q & A

What is a Gynecologist?

A gynecologist is a medical doctor who has extensive training in women’s health, especially reproductive health. Building a relationship with a dedicated gynecologist is important for preventive care and early detection of chronic diseases. Your dedicated gynecologist is also your go-to practitioner for:

  • Preserving your fertility
  • Performing surgery on your pelvic organs
  • Helping you get through menopause
  • Starting birth control and family planning

 

Ideally, you should schedule an annual preventive care exam, known as a well-woman exam. If you have chronic conditions, like polyps or endometriosis, your gynecologist may want to see you more regularly.

When Should I See a Gynecologist?

There may be times outside of your annual well-woman exam when you need to see a gynecologist. The compassionate team of practitioners at Garden OB/GYN wants you to schedule an evaluation if you:

  • Experience pelvic pain
  • Have sexual dysfunction
  • Are planning to get pregnant
  • Want to start or change birth control
  • Experience burning or pain while urinating
  • Have abnormal bleeding or heavy periods
  • Are having symptoms of an STD, including sores

 

You should also schedule an evaluation at Garden OB/GYN if you’re beginning to experience menopause-related symptoms, such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness.

How Do I Prepare for a Gynecology Exam?

There are a few things you can do to prepare for your gynecology exam at Garden OB/GYN, just to ensure you get the most out of your visit and to help your doctor better understand your health. It’s helpful to:

  • Transfer over your records from your previous gynecologist
  • Make a list of all medications and supplements
  • Know the first date of your last period

 

If you’re due for a Pap smear, try to schedule your appointment on a day when you’re not on your period because menstrual flow could affect your results. Or if you need a blood draw, you might need to fast for several hours beforehand, but you can ask the caring team at Garden OB/GYN ahead of time if this applies to you.
