Women's Health Q & A
What are Women’s Health Issues?
If your symptoms are minor, you may not realize you’re having a women’s health issue. But if you’re experiencing any of the following, you may have an underlying condition impacting your reproductive health:
- Heavy or irregular periods
- Pelvic or back pain or discomfort
- Cramps or tenderness
- Issues with urination or bowel movements
- Pain during or after sex
What Women’s Issues Can An OB/GYN Treat?
Your OB/GYN at the Avery Center can treat a wide variety of women’s health issues. Some of the most common include those that lead to heavy bleeding during your period, including uterine fibroids and endometriosis.
Issues with bladder and uterine placement are also addressable, and your doctor can stop the progression of pelvic organ prolapse using nonsurgical approaches, minimally invasive surgery, or cutting-edge laser techniques.
This specialized team can also diagnose, treat, and prevent uterine, cervical, and ovarian cancers. And they provide preventive screenings for breast cancer.
For younger women, they may recommend a vaccination for human papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually transmitted disease (STD) known to cause cervical cancer.
What Women’s Health Screenings Can You Expect?
Your doctor performs screenings and tests to promote gynecologic health and screen for certain conditions and ailments. They may request that you get regular:
- Pap smears
- STD testing
- Pelvic examinations
Why are Gynecologic Screenings Important?
Your OB/GYN performs annual screenings to help prevent certain diseases and conditions. Through preventive medicine, they’re even able to reduce your risk of developing certain cancers and chronic diseases.
Beyond tests, your doctor performs a physical that includes both a breast and pelvic exam. During these exams, your OB/GYN palpates your skin, looking for lumps or abnormalities. These types of exams lead to early diagnosis, which gives you a better chance of overcoming an issue if one is identified.
As part of your preventive care, your doctor may also counsel you on ways to improve your gynecologic health. That may involve:
- Birth control methods
- Safe sex
- Vaginal hygiene
- Infection prevention
