Gynecology Services Q & A

What is included in gynecology services?

Women of all ages benefit from comprehensive gynecology care. Services deal with a wide variety of issues around your pelvic and reproductive organs. Gynecology services include:

  • Yearly well-woman exams
  • Yeast or urinary tract infection diagnosis and treatment
  • STD screenings
  • Birth control counseling 
  • Diagnosis and treatment for gynecological conditions 

The providers at Symphony Medical offer evaluation, diagnosis, treatment, and preventive gynecology care. 

What is a well-woman exam?

An annual well-woman exam is a critical part of a woman’s preventive health care. Young women start this visit around age 13-15 to discuss issues like their menstrual cycle, unusual symptoms, and sexuality. These early visits do not include a pelvic exam.

At age 21, it’s recommended you have your first pelvic exam as part of your routine gynecology care. You have a clinical breast exam, a pelvic exam, and any testing as needed at these visits. 

You have the opportunity to ask questions about unusual symptoms, like unusual vaginal discharge, heavy periods, or pelvic pain. You also have time to address important issues like birth control, sexually transmitted diseases such as chlamydia, and any uncomfortable symptoms you may be experiencing. 

If any issues warrant further investigation, your provider can schedule the proper tests and screenings. 

As you get closer to menopause, your well woman-exams address concerns about symptoms like hot flashes and weight gain. You continue with well-woman exams after you’ve passed through menopause, which leaves you at an increased risk of developing osteoporosis and heart disease. 

Gynecology services help you stay healthy at all stages of life.

What screening tests are included in gynecology services?

Your gynecology services include these and other important screenings:

  • Pap smears to detect potential cervical cancer
  • HPV (human papillomavirus virus) testing
  • Mammograms (for high-risk patients or women 40 and older)
  • Clinical breast exams

Testing for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) isn’t routine, but it’s available on request. You may also undergo certain blood tests or a urinalysis if you have symptoms like pain while urinating, irregular bleeding, pain during intercourse, or severe bloating.
