Gynecology Q & A

What is gynecology?

Gynecology is an area of medical practice focused on addressing a woman’s reproductive health needs. Every woman should receive these services, as preventive health is a strong area of focus within gynecology. 

Well woman exams are routine preventive health visits. This is the setting where you receive a pelvic exam, Pap smear testing, a professional breast exam, and labs, all as needed. These visits are also an opportunity to discuss any areas of concern with your gynecologist.


What kinds of women’s health issues are treated within gynecology?

Gynecology spans a wide range of health needs. As you move through the phases of life, your reproductive health needs will shift and change. The team at Femcare OB-GYN brings a wealth of experience across all areas of women’s health and can assist you regardless of the complexity of your needs.

Why see a gynecologist if I don’t have a current women’s health problem?

Far too many women only come to see their gynecologist once symptoms arise. This approach fails to take advantage of all that preventive health has to offer. 

Routine well woman exams offer the chance to receive the screenings you need for your age and overall health. Thanks to advancements in medical technology, many common women’s health problems can now be caught in the earliest possible stages when treatment is often most effective.

Your annual well woman exams are also your chance to explore topics of interest. Thinking of trying a new form of birth control? Wondering what you can do now to prepare for a healthy pregnancy in the next year or two? These are just some of the topics on which your gynecologist can provide guidance.
