Gynecology is the medical field that specializes in health issues that are specific to women and their reproductive systems. The field involves the diagnosis and treatment of health concerns related to the female reproductive system, which includes both the breasts and vaginal area. Most women see their gynecologist annually for a Well Woman check-up which may also include pelvic exams and breast exams.
Patients will discuss any changes they have experienced in the past year, and to ask any questions about their reproductive health. The provider will also collect information about each patient’s health history, and will ask if there are any changes desired in terms of birth control. Next, a breast exam is conducted to check for any changes in breast tissue. The doctor will then perform an external exam, followed by a pelvic exam. If a Pap smear is scheduled, a small sample of cells will be taken during the pelvic exam. The exam typically concludes with questions or concerns the patient may have and advice on birth control options and other applicable health issues.
Women should begin seeing a healthcare provider for gynecological care from the time they’re a teenager. As soon as an adolescent has her first menstrual period through menopause, she should regularly see a provider who can make sure her body continues to be healthy and treat any issues that arise.
A gynecological appointment usually takes about as long as a standard wellness exam. The appointment involves some paperwork, discussing any symptoms or questions that the patient has, and a brief exam. All of this can be completed in just a short amount of time, often less than an hour. Sometimes lab tests can make an appointment take a little longer, but even when testing is necessary it’s usually still easy to fit an appointment into a day.
