Gynecological care should attend to all of a woman’s needs for reproductive health. At Comprehensive OB/GYN, we want to make sure we’re addressing every aspect of your health to ensure that you’re healthy before having children, while pregnant, and for many years after your children are born. We prioritize comprehensive gynecology to ensure you’re getting the attention you need to live a long, healthy life.
There are three essential parts to comprehensive gynecology treatment. Read our guide below to learn more about these parts and why each is important in maintaining your health.
There’s much more at stake with family planning than managing contraception. An unplanned pregnancy can take a massive psychological and emotional toll on an expecting mother. Our team can help you plan your family’s future with safe and effective contraceptives. When you’re ready to start your family, we’ll be by your side to ensure you and your baby are healthy. You can also work with your doctor to choose how you would like to proceed with contraception once you’ve decided you’re finished having kids.
It’s said that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of treatment. Never have truer words been spoken. Our team at Comprehensive OB/GYN is here to ensure you’re getting as much prevention as possible with comprehensive gynecology preventative treatment. We’ll perform well-woman exams that typically include a pap smear, a pelvic exam, and a breast exam. Patients who get these exams regularly are able to be more aware of their bodies and can get an early diagnosis for potential health problems like cervical cancer before they develop into more serious concerns.
Hormone replacement therapy
With aging comes a natural decline in and, eventually, an end to estrogen production. Your gynecology team can help to balance out your hormones with hormone replacement therapy for menopause. You can treat menopausal symptoms like hot flashes, vaginal discomfort, and more. Other side effects of menopause, like bone loss, can be slowed or prevented with hormone replacement therapy, which can prevent osteoporosis. We’ll work closely with you to weigh the risks and benefits of hormone replacement therapy to decide if such treatment is right for you.
STD screening and treatment
Anyone who’s sexually active with multiple partners should test for sexually transmitted diseases every three to six months. Getting tested once a year is a good idea, even if you’re in a monogamous relationship. Regular STD screening will ensure that you’re getting treatment early, so there aren’t further complications. Should you contract an STD, our team at Comprehensive OB/GYN can prescribe treatment that will take care of the issue. Your reproductive health can be greatly affected by STDs that go untreated, so it’s essential that you’re able to get any issues resolved.
