General Gynecology Q&A

What is general gynecology?

Gynecology is a branch of medicine that’s devoted to the study, diagnosis, and treatment of female reproductive organs. 

Whether you’re a young woman experiencing her first period or an older woman who’s long past menopause, annual well-woman exams and gynecology appointments help you stay healthy. 

They also allow Transform Women’s Care to identify any potential problems in their earliest, most treatable stages. 

What treatments are part of general gynecology?

Transform Women’s Care offers a variety of services to keep your reproductive organs healthy and strong and to preserve your sexual health. During a general gynecology consultation, you may receive:

  • Pelvic exam
  • Pap smear
  • Breast exam
  • Pregnancy test
  • STD tests
  • Treatments for painful periods
  • Treatments for menopause symptoms
  • Incontinence treatments
  • Birth control counseling
  • Permanent nonsurgical sterilization

Transform Women’s Care recommends that every woman undergo an annual well-woman exam. You should also contact the practice if you have uncomfortable symptoms like heavy or prolonged bleeding or pelvic pain.

Why is regular general gynecology care important?

When Transform Women’s Care conducts a well-woman exam, they’re looking for early signs of any diseases or conditions that could compromise your health, including cervical cancer and STDs. Catching and treating diseases and conditions at an early stage improves your prognosis.

Seeing your gynecologist at least once a year also lets you establish a relationship of trust. Then when you have troubling symptoms or are afraid that you might have an STD, you feel comfortable and safe reaching out for help, diagnosis, and treatment. 

You can also contact Transform Women’s Care when you want to become pregnant or if you’d like effective birth control.

What symptoms require gynecologic care?

In between your annual well-woman gynecological exams, you should reach out to Transform Women’s Care whenever you notice something different or troubling. Symptoms that can alert you to the need for gynecologic care include:

  • Painful sex
  • Foul-smelling vaginal discharge
  • Blisters or sores on your vulva or anus
  • Heavy, prolonged, or painful bleeding
  • Spotting between periods
  • Incontinence
  • Pelvic pain
  • Severe cramps

You can also contact Transform Women’s Care if you think you’re pregnant or suspect that you have an STD. They help you achieve your health and reproductive goals at every stage of life.
