What do women’s health doctors do?

A women’s health doctor, or gynecologist, is the professional women see about women’s health matters like cervical cancer, breast cancer, and others. The professional can screen for and help to prevent common and serious women’s health issues, and provide ongoing support for a woman.

Some of the services a gynecologist can provide include complete well-woman exams which can check for signs of issues like breast cancer. Services like pap smears, ultrasounds, and others, and advice about intimate health matters, reproductive matters, and contraception, can be provided by a gynecologist. A gynecologist can perform surgery when necessary, like for a pelvic floor disorder or endometriosis.

At the age of 20, or when a woman becomes sexually active, it’s important to go see a gynecologist annually. It might be important to see one in other circumstances, like when a woman experiences:

  • Urinary incontinence
  • Other issues related to her bladder
  • Menopause
  • Changes to her menstrual cycle/period frequency
  • Menstruation that’s irregular or even painful
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Discomfort/pain in the vaginal area
  • Bleeding that isn’t normal
  • Bleeding that happens during or after intercourse

Can my gynecologist be my primary care physician?

It’s very important for a woman to receive the services a gynecologist provides, and many of these services can be provided by a primary care physician, but not all. Often a physician will refer a patient to a gynecologist anyways. This is because a gynecologist is especially qualified to provide the services, like screening for cancer. Also, many women just prefer to have a gynecologist they can trust and speak with about intimate health issues. A gynecologist is the most qualified and understanding professional to see about such issues.
