What is gynecology?
All Female Health Care offers obstetric and gynecologic care, two closely related yet different women's health specialties. Obstetricians provide medical care during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postnatal period.
Gynecology focuses on women's reproductive system, providing routine exams to prevent health problems, while also diagnosing and treating conditions affecting your vagina, uterus, ovaries, and breasts.
All Female Health Care provides comprehensive gynecologic care throughout your lifetime, from adolescent gynecology through post-menopausal care.
What gynecology services might I receive?
Well-woman exams are the heart of gynecologic care. Your well-woman exam is a checkup that focuses on preventing problems in your reproductive system.
Most gynecologic conditions develop gradually for years before they cause symptoms. Scheduling routine well-woman exams allow your provider to detect early signs of problems while they can still be treated.
During your well-woman exam, you receive many possible services, including:
- Pelvic exam
- Breast exam
- Pap smear
- Birth control
- HPV testing
- STI testing
- Pre-pregnancy planning
- Weight management
- Chronic disease management
- Menopause management
- Hormone replacement therapy
- Health screenings and risk assessment
The All Female Health Care team treats urinary tract infections and screens for chronic health conditions such as diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and heart disease.
When should I schedule gynecologic care?
Teens should schedule their first well-woman visit between the ages of 13-15. Their first visit doesn't include a pelvic exam unless they're sexually active or have menstrual problems, pelvic pain, or other symptoms.
Instead, a teen's first visit focuses on meeting the team, talking about reproductive health, and getting answers to any questions they may have.
Women should have a full pelvic exam and Pap smear when they become sexually active or turn 21. After that, most women have yearly well-woman visits. However, your provider may recommend a different exam schedule depending on your age and overall health.
You should also schedule a gynecology appointment any time you have problems like:
- Pelvic pain or pressure (not from menstrual cramps)
- Irregular or heavy periods
- Missed periods
- Bleeding between periods
- Bleeding after menopause
- Severe menstrual cramps
- Pain during intercourse
- Vaginal dryness, itching, or burning
- Sores or lumps around your vagina
- Vaginal discharge with an odor or unusual color
All Female Health Care have years of experience treating the many different gynecologic conditions that cause these symptoms.
