Health and wellness are important in a woman’s life. Often, as she gets busy taking care of her children and family, remembering their doctor appointments, soccer games, and favorite foods, she forgets or puts off her own personal health care. Woman’s health is made up of more than simply eating well and exercising frequently, it requires regular checkups with a physician to ensure that the body remains healthy.
Gynecology is the field of medicine that is centered on a woman’s reproductive system. For some women, their annual gynecological checkup is the only regular medical checkup that they receive. This is why it’s critical for a woman to have a trusting relationship with her gynecologist. Dr. Taryll Jenkins in Katy, TX, has been helping care for women and helping them start their families for many years. He, and his entire team, not only provide expert care but also take the time to form trusted relationships with their patients in order to promote overall health and wellness.

Annual checkups are important to monitor your health, however, there may be other reasons to call Dr. Jenkins as well. For example:
Severe or unusual menstrual pain or bleeding
Pain in the vagina, pelvic region, or stomach
Discolored or otherwise abnormal vaginal discharge
Irritation of the vulva or vagina including swelling, itching, pain, or sores
Changes in the breast including lumps

Over-the-counter medication can occasionally mask the pain or the symptoms, but cannot clear an underlying infection. furthermore, your gynecologist can spot the beginning signs of potential problems before they grow into larger health issues.
