Every phase of life brings changes in the kind of care you need. From routine wellness checks to contraception and family planning, pregnancy, childbirth, menopause and beyond, we provide the services you need to help keep you healthy at every age.
Your first gynecology appointment
Most teens should begin regular gynecologic care between the ages of 13 and 15. For some adolescents, puberty may start as early as nine or ten. In those cases, you may want to make the first appointment sooner.
Getting into the habit of regular gynecologic visits can help identify and prevent many common gynecologic complications. Our team includes providers who specialize in pediatric gynecology that can help your child form a healthy attitude about gynecologic care during the transition into adulthood.
Gynecologic care after menopause
Maintaining a relationship with your ob-gyn is important at every age. You may not have concerns about fertility or pregnancy, but regular visits and screenings can help identify any potential conditions early. An ob-gyn can also help treat conditions such as incontinence or weakening of the pelvic floor.
Common Gynecologic Conditions
The importance of annual checkups
Annual gynecologic checkups are essential to health and well-being. Routine gynecology visits allow your physician to monitor your health to detect or prevent issues before they become serious or life-threatening.
Prevention is key to your health
Preventative care is critical. It can keep a serious gynecological condition from developing. Regular screenings can help detect breast and uterine cancer, identify and treat sexually transmitted diseases or HPV and pinpoint other irregularities that could affect your long-term health. Ask your caregiver what preventative gynecological care steps you can take based on your medical history and age.
Family planning and sexual health
If you're sexually active, your annual gynecology exam is an excellent time to talk to your ob-gyn about your sexual health and reproductive plans. Your caregiver can assist with issues like pain during intercourse and prescribe birth control options that match your needs and lifestyle.
