Women have different gynecological needs in life, and gynecology provides specialized care to help with these issues. Gynecology may include preventative care, minimally invasive surgery, reproductive medicine, vulvovaginal disorders, and more.
Why Is Gynecology Important?
Gynecology focuses on female reproductive health and involves the diagnosis and treatment of female health issues. Timely gynecologic care is therefore important to optimal health, and routine visits to a gynecologist can help to build a foundation of health and wellness in a woman’s life.
The menopause years can be particularly difficult for some women to navigate, but gynecologists can help menopausal women address gynecologic concerns such as vulvovaginal atrophy and estrogen loss.
Gynecology Provides Preventive Care
Gynecologists are specially trained to screen for issues relating to hormones, breast disease, and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Screening is beneficial because there are conditions that may exist without any symptoms, but screening can detect these conditions early
Women often experience symptoms such as vaginal burning, itching, and abnormal discharge. These are all symptoms that can be evaluated by a gynecologist so that the related health issues can be diagnosed and treated promptly.
Women should seek to make their annual gynecology exam a priority, because it presents a valuable opportunity for them to talk to their doctor about any pain or discomfort they may be experiencing. This makes it possible to detect diseases early when treatment can be most effective.
The annual exam is also a time women can discuss tips for healthy living as well as lifestyle modifications they can make for the prevention of disease.
