Gynecology is the medical field that manages women’s sexual and reproductive health. The female reproductive tract includes several organs of its own, but gynecology also provides care for secondary sexual characteristics like your breasts.
Reproductive organs that your gynecologist can assess and treat include:
While your gynecologist can evaluate, diagnose, and treat conditions related to these organs, their expertise doesn’t stop there.
Your gynecologist can also help with birth control prescriptions and management, fertility issues, sexual dysfunction, and certain conditions related to your hormones or psychological health.
The Georgia Obstetrics and Gynecology team routinely treats or manages various common and uncommon conditions in the reproductive tract and other women’s health concerns.
Using diagnostic procedures like pelvic exams, Pap smears, colposcopy, and ultrasound imaging, they can diagnose or monitor:
Gynecologists often also practice as obstetricians specializing in pregnancy and prenatal health care. The team at Georgia Obstetrics and Gynecology coordinates your care to help you plan a pregnancy or maintain your and your baby’s health through all three trimesters.
There are many reasons to consider scheduling a gynecology visit, but you should book at least one appointment per year as a preventive care measure.
