Gynecology Q & A

Why do I need to see a gynecologist?

Your gynecologist acts as your partner in health, offering a broad array of women’s health and sexual health services. The services range from cancer screenings to treatment for vaginal and uterine conditions.

At Greensboro OB-GYN Associates, your gynecologist protects your reproductive health and overall wellness with annual checkups. A gynecologist can diagnose and treat conditions that a primary care doctor might not have the expertise to care for, which is why it’s important to schedule a yearly visit.

What services does a gynecologist offer?

Your gynecologist at Greensboro OB-GYN Associates offers services for each stage of your life, whether you’re trying to prevent a pregnancy with birth control or seeking treatment for an abnormal Pap smear.

The gynecological services for women include:

  • Onsite 2D and 3D screening mammograms
  • Colposcopy and LEEP procedures
  • HPV vaccinations (GARDASIL®)
  • Endometrial ablation to treat heavy periods
  • Preconception counseling
  • Treatment of PMS and menstrual disorders
  • Menopausal care
  • Infertility assessments
  • Treatment for polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
  • In-office testing for sexually transmitted diseases

Your gynecologist can also help you select the right contraceptive method, including long-acting reversible birth control options, such as an IUD or the Nexplanon® implant. To keep you healthy now, and in the future, your gynecologist at Greensboro OB-GYN Associates also performs annual well-woman exams.

What happens during a well-woman exam?

Much of the focus of a well-woman exam is on preventive care. Your Greensboro OB-GYN Associates gynecologist starts by taking a complete history. You’ll be asked questions about your overall health, such as:

  • Your eating and exercise habits
  • Whether you drink, use drugs, or smoke
  • Your sexual health and sexual partners
  • Whether you’re taking any medications, vitamins, minerals, or herbs
  • Your mental health history, including anxiety, stress, or depression

Next, you’ll have a physical exam. Your gynecologist may ask you to undress from the waist down or to remove all of your clothes. You’ll be offered a gown to wear. Then, your gynecologist typically performs a:

  • Pap smear: A screening test to look for early signs of cervical cancer
  • Breast exam: To look for unusual changes in your breasts and under your arms
  • Pelvic exam: To feel for physical changes in the vagina and pelvic region

If you need a mammogram, Greensboro OB-GYN Associates provides both 2D and 3D mammogram services on-site in a comfortable setting. Call today or book a consultation online.
