What is gynecology?
Obstetrics and gynecology are often lumped together because they both involve the health of the female
body. Obstetrics involves pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. Gynecology involves more
than pregnancy. It focuses on the health of the breasts and the female reproductive system including
the vagina, uterus, and ovaries. The services deal with the functions and diseases specific to women
and girls. Our team focuses on providing the best care for women from adolescence to menopause. Our goal
is to support women and to help them stay happy and healthy.

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.
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.
