Gynecology is a branch of medicine that focuses on women’s reproductive health. It diagnoses and treats diseases and disorders that affect the female reproductive system, including the ovaries, cervix, fallopian tubes, vagina, and breasts.
Top Doc OB/GYN provides complete gynecology care to all people with female reproductive organs. Routine checkups are one of the easiest ways to protect your health, as they can alert you to potentially serious conditions when they respond best to treatment.
Top Doc OB/GYN offers various gynecology services, including:
An annual exam, or well-woman exam, assesses your sexual health.
It’s important to participate in annual exams even if you feel healthy. Many potentially serious issues, like uterine fibroids and hormonal imbalances, don’t always present obvious symptoms. Annual exams make it easier to spot these issues in their early stages of development.
A Pap test assesses your risk of cervical cancer. During a Pap test, your Top Doc OB/GYN provider collects a sample of cells from your cervix. Then, they send your sample to a laboratory that analyzes it for the presence of cancerous or precancerous cells.
If you experience changes in your monthly period, like heavy bleeding or painful pelvic cramps, a gynecology appointment can pinpoint the underlying cause.
During your visit, your provider conducts a physical and pelvic exam, orders laboratory testing, and performs an ultrasound to rule out issues like fibroids or polyps.
After you enter menopause, it’s normal to experience uncomfortable side effects like vaginal dryness, hot flashes, and mood swings. Fortunately, it’s possible to relieve these and other issues, through a combination of healthy lifestyle changes and hormone replacement therapy.
Family planning helps you prepare for or prevent pregnancy. Depending on your goals, your provider can make suggestions to boost your fertility or recommend contraceptives to provide peace of mind.
Most medical conditions respond to conservative treatments, but surgical intervention might be necessary if you experience pelvic prolapse or another more serious issue. Top Doc OB/GYN offers minimally invasive surgery with the Da Vinci robotic surgical system.
Anyone aged 15 or older with female reproductive organs can benefit from gynecology. Regular checkups at Top Doc OB/GYN present an opportunity to build a relationship with your provider and can alert you to underlying medical conditions that require immediate attention.
