Why do I need a gynecologist?


Regular visits to your gynecologist are highly recommended to any woman, particularly for your annual screening. This is largely due to the fact you can bring up any concerns or symptoms that may be occurring in regards to your pelvic, vaginal, vulvar area, pain, or abnormal bleeding from the uterus.

When should a female see a gynecologist?


Women should be visiting their gynecologist for a pap screening for cervical cancer starting at the age of 21. However, it is highly recommended to start visiting a gynecologist much earlier on, usually around the age of 13 to 16, particularly during your time of transition from child to young women, menstruation, or if you are becoming sexually active.
 
You should also book an appointment with a gynecologist if you are noticing any symptoms from the list above, or if you are noticing any pain that may be concerning.

What are the benefits of visiting a gynecologist?


Gynecologists are available for not only your general health care, but also for preventative medicine for women and to help diagnose and treat any medical issues which may include lower back pain, headaches, mood changes, and acne. For more information, call or book an appointment online with our gynecologist, or visit our clinic. We have convenient locations to serve you. We look forward to serving you!
