Gynecology Q&A

What is gynecology?

Gynecology is an area of medical practice focused on a woman’s reproductive health. A wide range of services fall under the category of gynecology, and each woman has a unique set of needs. 

Well-woman exams are the foundation of gynecologic health. These visits allow your specialist the opportunity to provide the screenings necessary for your age and overall health. They are also your chance to ask questions, change your birth control method, or learn how you can enhance your health. 

What kinds of services are available from a gynecologist?

The skilled providers at OB-GYN Hawaii have training across the entire field of gynecology and also have a strong background in internal medicine. This breadth of training enables them to deliver care across the full spectrum of women’s health needs. 

Some of the gynecologic conditions the team can diagnose and treat include:

  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Pelvic pain
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Endometriosis
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • Menopause
  • Infertility
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease

These are just some of the gynecologic issues that women can face. Minimally invasive surgical techniques, which ease healing and reduce the risk of complications, can treat some conditions. If you’re concerned about unusual changes or symptoms, contact the office to book an exam today. 

How often should I see a gynecologist?

As a general rule, it’s a good idea to see your gynecologist once a year as part of your overall health and wellness planning. Each woman is unique, though, and has a distinct set of needs. 

Annual visits provide a chance for a well-woman exam, which the team tailors to meet your specific needs. A Pap smear is often part of the process and is a powerful tool for detecting cervical cancer in the earliest stages. 

If you are preparing for pregnancy, struggling with menopause, or have a complex gynecologic condition, you may need more frequent visits as you move through your customized treatment plan. Women who are past menopause may only need to come in once every other year, depending on overall health. 

OB-GYN Hawaii offers highly customized care and works with you to determine the schedule that is most beneficial. That process begins with your first visit, which you can set up online or by calling the office today.
