Women’s OBGYN physicians at Georgia Gynecology and Obstetrics provide quality, patient-centered care to women in Atlanta and Alpharetta, GA. An OBGYN performs a variety of services and provides care for each stage of a women’s life from adolescence to menopause.

 It is recommended girls start seeing a women’s doctor around age 13

Women’s OBGYN provides care to women throughout their lives, often beginning at age 13. Your daughter’s first visit to an OBGYN for a check up will be different from the visits you currently have. It is recommended that girls begin to see a women’s OBGYN when they start menstruating. Though they are not yet sexually active, it is an important time to build a relationship with their doctor and discuss any questions they have.

Take time to prepare your child for the visit by discussing what why it’s important to see a women’s specialist each year and what they can expect during their exam. If you have questions or need help preparing your daughter for her visit, be sure to contact our office.

Regular visits as you age is an essential part of your sexual and overall health

As you age and become sexually active, visiting a women’s OBGYN each year becomes an integral part of your sexual health, and your overall health. During your visit to the doctor, your height and weight will be noted, and your vitals taken. Your doctor will also perform a breast exam, pelvic exam, and PAP Smear to check for signs of cancers or other problems.

During this time, you and your doctor can discuss any questions you have including birth control planning.

Your doctor will also provide care during menopause

Menopause marks a big change in a women’s life and having a doctor to help guide you and manage symptoms is important. While some women have an easier time with menopause, some experience symptoms that impact their daily lives. If you’re going through menopause, consult your women’s OBGYN. They’ll be able to help you manage your symptoms and get back to your daily life.
