What is gynecology?
Gynecology is an area of medical practice focused on addressing women’s health issues. Physicians who choose to specialize in gynecology go through advanced training on women’s reproductive care.
Many gynecologists also specialize in obstetrics, which is the area of medical practice focused on pregnancy and childbirth. Choosing a gynecologist who also provides these services means you’ll have an opportunity to build a trusting bond with your practitioner long before you welcome your baby into the world.
What kinds of women’s health issues can be covered through gynecology?
Gynecologists provide comprehensive well woman exams, which are the foundation of women’s health and wellness. They also advise women on various health topics that can enhance and improve their quality of life.
Some of the issues a gynecologist can diagnose and treat include:
- Abnormal menstrual bleeding
- Uterine fibroids
- Polycystic ovary syndrome
- Reproductive cancer
- Sexual health
- Postpartum care
Your gynecologist can also help you find the right birth control for your needs and lifestyle. Your visits might also touch on overall health issues that affect women, like heart disease, diabetes, and depression, and anxiety.
How do I choose a great gynecologist?
Ideally, your gynecologist will guide your women’s health needs for many years, so finding the right practitioner is important. You want to find a doctor who is easy to communicate with, as many women’s health issues require in-depth discussion of symptoms.
It’s also important to feel like you can form a healthy professional bond with your gynecologist. You should feel welcome to ask questions and explore topics more deeply, as needed. You should never feel rushed or unheard.
Some women are more comfortable working with a female gynecologist, although there are certainly many male specialists who deliver outstanding care. Take the time to meet several practitioners to find the right match, and never hesitate to try a new professional if you are unsatisfied with your care or treatment.
