Gynecology Q & A

What is Gynecology?

Gynecology is a specialized area of medicine focused on the health of women. Gynecological care includes:

  • Monitoring of your reproductive health
  • Pre- and post-menopausal care
  • Screenings for breast and gynecological cancer
  • Fertility
  • Medical monitoring during pregnancy
  • Overall female health

What Can I Expect During a Gynecology Exam?

The compassionate OB/GYNs at Woodglen Medical Group want you to feel comfortable during your exam, and they'll go over what to expect before getting started. The exam includes both a physical and a pelvic exam.

  • Physical Exam: Similar to an exam with your primary care physician, during the physical exam your healthcare professional checks your -
    • Height and weight
    • Blood pressure and heart rate
    • Eyes, ears, and throat
    • Reflexes

Your doctor also checks your internal organs through palpation and examines you for any other health issues.

  • Pelvic Exam: During the pelvic exam, your OB/GYN examines your reproductive system, including your vulva, vagina, cervix, and other internal organs. To check for cervical cell changes, your doctor may also perform a Pap test during the pelvic portion of your exam.

What Happens After the Gynecological Exam?

After the exam, your doctor talks to you about your health and whether you need additional tests or procedures, such as blood work or an ultrasound. This is also a good time for you to address any gynecological needs or health concerns, such as sexually transmitted diseases, birth control, or problems with your period, like heavy bleeding or intense cramping.
