Gynecology

What is gynecology?

Gynecology is an area of medical practice focused on a woman’s reproductive health. Women encounter an array of different needs as they move through the phases of life. Having a trusted gynecology provider to turn to is an essential part of overall health and wellness. 

Far too many women place the demands of family, career, and community above their health needs. It’s important to set aside time to get the care, medical advice, and health screenings you need to remain healthy and happy. 

What are some common gynecologic conditions?

There are many different conditions that can be effectively treated by a skilled gynecology practitioner. Some examples include:

  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Inflammatory pelvic disease
  • Sexually transmitted diseases
  • Menopause symptoms
  • Infertility

This is far from a comprehensive list. No matter what type of gynecologic condition you face, Monique at The Women's Center at Life Point Medical is here to help. 

Booking annual well-woman exams is the best way to detect gynecologic conditions in the earliest possible stages when treatment is often most effective. You should also book a diagnostic exam any time you notice changes or symptoms. 

What if I need specialized care?

The Women’s Center at Life Point Medical can diagnose and treat a wide range of gynecology issues, but there are instances in which you may require specialized care. An example lies in breast tissue abnormalities. 

A breast exam is part of a women’s wellness visit. If Monique detects tissue abnormalities during your exam, you may need to have special imaging called a mammogram or a biopsy. If your needs require a specialist, Monique taps into her professional network to help you find the right practitioner. 

She remains in close contact with your extended medical team while you are in specialized care. This ensures continuity of care once your treatment ends, and also helps you maintain an accurate and thorough medical record. 

If you are looking for a gynecology provider you can rely upon for all of your routine women’s health needs, as well as any potential issues that arise, call The Women’s Center at Life Point Medical to book a visit today. Online scheduling is also available and takes just moments to complete.
