Is seeing a gynecologist necessary?
It’s necessary for women to get many of the gynecological services a gynecologist provides. Many of these services can be provided by a primary care physician, but not all, and often a physician will refer a patient to a gynecologist anyways, as a gynecologist is especially qualified to provide the services. Many women like having a gynecologist she can trust and talk to about any intimate health issue. A gynecologist is the best kind of professional to see about women’s health matters, and can screen for and prevent common women’s health issues and provide ongoing support.
The services a gynecologist can provide include comprehensive well-woman exams to check for signs of issues like breast cancer. Services like pap smears, ultrasounds, and more, and advice about intimate health matters, reproductive matters, and contraception, can be provided. Sometimes it may be necessary to see a gynecological surgeon, such as for conditions like pelvic floor disorder or endometriosis.
At what age should a woman start seeing a gynecologist/women’s care physician?
When a woman turns 20 years old or becomes sexually active, she should go see a gynecologist. It’s also necessary to see one in other circumstances, like if a woman experiences:
- Changes in her period frequency/menstrual cycle
- Painful or irregular menstruation
- Discomfort or pain in the vaginal area
- Unordinary bleeding
- Bleeding during or after intercourse
- Ovarian cysts
- Urinary incontinence
- Other issues related to the bladder
It’s best to see a gynecologist annually. At the office of Dr. Richard Beyerlein MD, the doctor will be available to you each and every year you need a checkup, and can provide ongoing care when necessary.
