Gynecology Q & A

What is gynecology?

Gynecology is the field of medicine that involves specialized care of women’s bodies, particularly their reproductive systems.

The expert providers at Women's Health of Manhattan offer the full scope of gynecological care, including the diagnosis and treatment of all disorders that affect your uterus, vagina, ovaries, and fallopian tubes. They also screen for and treat conditions that affect your breasts.

When should I see a gynecologist?

The frequency of your gynecology appointments varies based on your age, health, and reproductive goals. In general, all women should see their doctor at Women's Health of Manhattan at least once a year for an annual well-woman exam starting around age 12.

You should also schedule an appointment if you have symptoms like pelvic pain, bleeding or spotting in between periods, pain during sex, or abnormally heavy menstrual bleeding.

What conditions does a gynecologist treat?

The doctors at Women's Health of Manhattan treat a wide variety of gynecologic conditions. Common women’s health disorders include:

  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Menopause symptoms
  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Endometriosis
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Pelvic pain
  • Abnormal uterine bleeding
  • Vaginal discomforts like itching and burning
  • Breast disorders
  • Trouble getting pregnant (infertility)

They can also help you prevent pregnancy by recommending and prescribing the best form of birth control for your needs.

What are some common gynecology procedures?

The expert providers at Women's Health of Manhattan use a wide range of tests and procedures to diagnose, treat, and manage gynecological disorders. Depending on your age and health, a routine well-woman exam may include a cervical cancer screening, known as a Pap smear, and breast cancer screening.

Other procedures may include ultrasound imaging, colposcopy, and biopsy. If your condition requires surgery, the skilled team at Women's Health of Manhattan uses minimally invasive procedures like laparoscopy and hysteroscopy whenever possible. They also perform traditional, open surgery when necessary.

For relief from vaginal changes that occur after pregnancy or menopause, your doctor may recommend vaginal rejuvenation or hormone replacement therapy.
