Gynecology Q & A

What is gynecology?

Gynecology is a medical field that specializes in the health of a woman’s reproductive system, including the external genitalia, vagina, uterus, ovaries, and breasts. A gynecologist monitors each of these organs for signs of trouble to ensure early detection of gynecologic conditions for the best possible treatment outcomes.

General gynecology is focused on the non-pregnant reproductive system. Obstetrics is a separate specialty that concerns the health of mother and baby during pregnancy and delivery. The skilled providers at Advantage Women’s Care have expertise in both of these fields.

How often do I need to see a gynecologist?

Teens and women should have a well-woman exam every year, and Advantage Women’s Care provides exams for women ages 15 and older. A well-woman visit includes a pelvic exam and screenings for cervical and breast cancer. You’ll also have plenty of time to ask questions and discuss concerns with your caring Advantage Women’s Care provider.

For healthy women, a Pap test is recommended every two years. If you’ve had an abnormal Pap test, or you have certain health conditions, your gynecologist may recommend more frequent Pap tests.
