Focused on Caring for Women
Gynecologists have advanced training in conditions related to female reproductive organs. They perform routine exams and screenings such as pelvic and breast exams, and pap smears. Gynecologists also can diagnose and treat a variety of conditions, including menstruation and fertility issues, sexually transmitted infections, sexual dysfunction, incontinence, menopause symptoms and hormone disorders.
Women are recommended to have pelvic and breast exams on an annual basis. In addition, schedule an appointment with your gynecologist when you want to discuss family planning, or any time you have symptoms that concern you, such as pelvic, vulvar and vaginal pain or abnormal vaginal bleeding.
