Many patients in the Katy, TX area are interested in visiting a doctor to learn about the services offered in the realm of general gynecological care.
What is gynecology?
Our team of professionals provide gynecological care for women who want to maintain the health and wellness of their reproductive system. This includes the diagnosis, treatment, and care of the ovaries, uterus, vagina, and the fallopian tubes. A gynecologist can screen for certain conditions, provide routine care and diagnosis, and treat issues that involve the reproductive centers, including the breasts. Most women start seeing a gynecologist regularly once puberty has begun.
Who requires gynecological care?
It is incredibly important for all women to seek routine gynecological care for their overall health and wellness. There are several benefits to visiting a gynecologist. A gynecologist offers monitoring of conditions that can affect women, including cervical cancer or yeast infections. Additionally, many women schedule routine pap smears to ensure they are tested and screened for medical conditions that may become problematic. A gynecologist can help women with many situations and should be seen on a regular basis for proper care of the reproductive system.
What are some services offered by a gynecologist?
Some women are unsure of all the services and treatments that are provided by their gynecologist. Drs. Jenkins and Falae are here to assist with these situations and more:
- Annual wellness examinations including pap smears for screening of cancers
- Sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing
- HPV screenings
- Family planning / contraception (birth control)
- Diagnosis and management of menopause
- Diagnosis and treatment for menstrual irregularities
- Treatment for conditions such as urinary incontinence and bladder discomfort
- Diagnosis and treatment for vaginal and urinary tract infections
When should I start seeing a gynecologist?
Most women start seeing a gynecologist once they have hit puberty, and throughout adulthood. A gynecologist is helpful in educating young women about their sexual health and about how their body works, providing knowledge in regard to how the menstrual system works and what to expect throughout the changes in their bodies during puberty. Young women also have access to birth control, such as condoms, birth control pills, and injections that can keep them from getting pregnant before they are ready. As women age, they can continue to see the same provider to guide them through the later changes in the body, including menopause. We also have many professionals in our practice who provide obstetrical care for those who want to conceive and have children. Our practice is full service for women’s reproductive health at all stages in life.
Why should I visit a gynecologist instead of my primary care physician?
Gynecologists are specially trained to assist women with a variety of conditions that affect one’s reproductive health. A primary care physician is best for overall health and wellness care, but is not always well-versed or trained to specialize in gynecological concerns. Often, if there are concerns outside of their scope of practice, a primary care physician may refer patients to a gynecologist or obstetrician for further evaluation and care. By visiting with a team like ours from the start, patients can build a positive relationship with our staff and know that they are cared for by a team of experienced, specialized professionals under one roof.
