Gynecology Q & A

What Gynecological Services Might I Receive?

Adolescents and young adults don’t need their first pelvic exam or Pap smear until age 21 or when they first become sexually active. However, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends that young teens schedule their first gynecologic visit between the ages of 13 and 15 years.

At their first visit, young girls don’t need a pelvic exam, but it gives them the opportunity to learn about their menstrual periods and to become comfortable with their gynecologist at Bayard Obstetrics & Gynecology.

Throughout a woman’s lifetime, gynecologic care includes services such as:

  • Disease prevention (screenings, wellness education)
  • Routine preventive health care (annual well-woman visits, Pap smear)
  • Family planning (birth control, preconception counseling, infertility)
  • Menopause management (hormone replacement therapy and ongoing preventive care)
  • Gynecologic screening (pelvic pain, gynecologic conditions, cancer)
  • Diagnostic procedures (ultrasound, colposcopy, hysteroscopy)
  • Comprehensive treatment (medication management, minimally invasive surgery)

The team at Bayard Obstetrics & Gynecology also reminds you about routine screenings such as mammograms, offers vaccinations as needed, and monitors your risk for chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes.

What Urinary-Related Problems Will My Gynecologist Treat?

Gynecologists specialize in treating problems that develop in your urinary tract. In fact, urinary tract infections are one of the most common problems treated by gynecologists. The doctors at Bayard Obstetrics & Gynecology are also experts in the diagnosis and treatment of urinary incontinence and bladder or pelvic organ prolapse.

When Should I Seek Help for a Gynecologic Problem?

When you experience symptoms or have a question about your health, the team at Bayard Obstetrics & Gynecology are available to help. However, you should schedule an appointment if you experience any of the following:

  • Bleeding between periods or periods that are longer and heavier than normal
  • Bleeding after sexual intercourse or after you reach menopause
  • Frequent and urgent need to urinate or burning sensation during urination
  • Pelvic pain or pressure that’s not menstrual cramps
  • Itching, burning, soreness in your vaginal area
  • Sores or lumps in the external genital area
  • Vaginal discharge with unpleasant odor or unusual color
  • Pain or discomfort during intercourse

Bleeding after menopause is always a sign to take seriously because it’s the first sign of endometrial cancer in about 10% of postmenopausal women.

The caring team at Bayard Obstetrics & Gynecology provide comprehensive care and advanced treatments such as minimally invasive surgery to women throughout their lifetime. To schedule an appointment, call or use the online booking feature.
