Gynecology is a medical specialty that focuses on women’s health, specifically sexual, reproductive, hormonal, and breast health. The gynecology team at Women’s Care of Beverly Hills aims to provide you with every service you need to maintain or improve your wellness and makes sure you stay on track with any age-specific services you need.
Many gynecologists also specialize in obstetrics. While not the same, the two practices are closely linked. Obstetrics specifically focuses on pregnancy and pregnancy-related health care, while gynecology involves procedures and services for women who are not pregnant.
Gynecology addresses the function and health of various specific organs involved in your sexual and reproductive health. These include, but aren’t limited to, your ovaries, cervix, and uterus. Gynecologists can also address urinary issues and breast health.
Topics you can bring up during your next visit to Women’s Care of Beverly Hills include:
The team at Women’s Care of Beverly Hills specializes in diagnosing and treating various diseases and disorders that impact your reproductive organs and system, such as fibroids, endometriosis, cysts, and cervical cancer.
Visiting your gynecologist should be a part of your ongoing health care routine, starting around the time of adolescence. Your wellness visits with a gynecologist evolve over time to include age-specific tests, screenings, and services, but many components of them remain the same every time.
Annual gynecology wellness exams should happen once a year. These are separate from your primary care visits, which your primary care provider might also encourage you to attend yearly. An annual gynecology exam involves a pelvic examination alongside other tests and services, like Pap smears and breast exams.
There are plenty of other reasons to see the team at Women’s Care of Beverly Hills too. Consider scheduling an appointment for any changes in your period, when you want to change or go off birth control, sexually transmitted disease (STD) concerns, and any other time you have questions or concerns.
