Signs and symptoms of women's health problems

A gynecologist is an important member of a woman's healthcare team. For many women, a gynecologist is the only physician who is seen on a regular basis. Women should visit the gynecologist yearly for a routine exam. This ensures that you are in good health and that no problems have arisen in the last year. However, if you experience any problems such as pelvic pain, abnormal bleeding, or breast pain or lumps, it is important to contact your doctor for an appointment.

Menstruation brings about cramps, discharge, and bleeding. This is normal. Prior to menopause, women often experience vaginal bleeding and discharge as well. However, changes to your normal cycle, heavy or extended bleeding, or severe abdominal pain may be cause for concern. If you notice anything different, contact your physician. Do not ignore your symptoms  or attempt to diagnose or treat yourself. Gynecological symptoms may resemble other medical or urological problems. An examination or testing may be required to determine your condition.

happy woman Paying attention to your body and your health helps you detect symptoms or changes early. Seeing your doctor right away increases the chances of a faster diagnosis and successful treatment. Delaying treatment can allow your problem to progress into a more serious condition. Consult your physician if you notice any of the following symptoms:
  • Any abnormal bleeding including bleeding between periods or heavy bleeding
  • A frequent or urgent need to urinate
  • Burning during urination
  • Pelvic pain that differs from menstrual cramps
  • Itching, burning, or redness in the vaginal area
  • Sores or bumps in the vaginal area
  • Vaginal discharge with an unpleasant odor or an unusual color
  • Pain during intercourse
If you are having health issues, your physician will review your medical history and your current symptoms. A woman's age, health, and other symptoms determine the tests ordered to diagnose the problem. Depending on your symptoms, diagnostic tools may include blood tests, urinalysis, ultrasound, or biopsy.
