The field of medicine that takes care of women is gynecology, and it differs from obstetrics because it only treats women who are not pregnant. Gynecology encompasses numerous examinations, tests, and screenings that are all designed to detect health issues that can significantly affect a woman’s reproductive health and well-being. For healthy women, it is suggested that they visit a gynecologist once a year and go through various routine tests as advised by their doctor.

Once you start visiting a gynecologist regularly, you should make sure to feel comfortable and confident to talk to them about everything that concerns you. Their task is to provide you with prompt and adequate care and treatment, but you should know to recognize warning signs that are potential symptoms of serious conditions such as fibroids, cysts, and, ultimately, cancer.

The role of your gynecologist is to give you information about your health, give you advice, and administer necessary examinations. You can expect questions about your age, lifestyle, medical history, and habits since these are all important for the gynecologist’s assessment of your health. Additionally, a pelvic floor exam and ultrasound are performed first to understand the state of your health. This will give your gynecologist more details about what tests and screenings to suggest to ensure you are well taken care of. Although some of these examinations can be a bit uncomfortable, you should know they are absolutely necessary.

Modern medicine and the development of medicinal equipment have made gynecology much more effective at detecting different conditions, diseases, and illnesses that are common for all women during the reproductive age. It’s never been easier to diagnose and treat serious health issues, which is why gynecologists rely on the usage of modern technology. Collaborating with and following the advice of your gynecologist is important because it can help you catch serious health issues on time and being provided with proper treatment options.
