Gynecology Q&A

What is gynecology?

Gynecology is medical care emphasizing the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of women's health problems, with a particular focus on reproductive health.  

Ganesh OBGYN offers comprehensive gynecology care for girls and women of all ages, through every stage of their life, from starting menstruation to menopause. The caring and highly experienced physicians even treat multiple generations of women within the same families. 

In addition to gynecology, Ganesh OBGYN offers comprehensive obstetrics care, including support for high-risk pregnancies.

What health services does gynecology include?

At Ganesh OBGYN, gynecology spans a wide range of health services, including:

Well-woman exams

Well-woman exams are an important part of gynecological care because they emphasize preventive care. The main goal is to check for potential health problems in their earliest stages. Your well-woman exam can vary with your age and stage of life, but in general, it includes a pelvic exam and a Pap smear to check for changes or issues within the reproductive organs. 

Breast exam

You may need a clinical breast exam during your well-woman appointment or if you discover a lump or change in your breast at another time. If you're over the age of 40, you may need a mammogram referral as well. 

Birth control

If you're sexually active and don't want to have a baby at this time, birth control is available at gynecology visits. Birth control pills and intrauterine devices are just a few of the effective ways to prevent pregnancy.

Family planning

Family planning discussions can help you plan for the future better. If you have any concerns about conceiving a baby, infertility, or other issues related to family building, Ganesh OBGYN can help. 

Sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing

If you're sexually active or have been sexually active in the past, STD testing can identify diseases such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis. 

Osteoporosis screening

You may need osteoporosis (bone thinning) screening starting from age 65. 

Condition diagnosis and management 

Gynecological care at Ganesh OBGYN includes the diagnosis and non-surgical or surgical treatment of vaginal bleeding, pelvic pain, fibroids, urinary tract infections (UTIs), endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and other conditions. 

Menopause management

Menopause management helps you to cope with issues that occur when your hormone levels drop during menopause. Hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, lowered libido, vaginal dryness, and other menopause issues are very treatable with methods such as hormone replacement therapy and lifestyle changes.

Additional services a gynecologist can assist with include immunizations, health screenings (diabetes, high cholesterol, colon cancer, and others), lifestyle counseling, women's health education, and other specific care based on your unique needs. 

How often should I see a gynecology provider?

Ganesh OBGYN recommends that all women schedule a well-woman exam once a year. If you have any new issues, or if a chronic problem suddenly worsens, schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
