Women’s Health FAQs

Gynecology focuses on caring for women through the various stages and transitions of life from puberty to adulthood. Gynecologists focus on the medical care of females’ reproductive systems and health concerns.

Gynecology includes the diagnosis, treatment, and preventive care of conditions relating to a woman’s reproductive system, including the vagina, uterus, ovaries, and Fallopian tubes.

Gynecology also includes screening and treating problems with a woman’s breasts.

Your Women’s Health Specialist counsels you on your contraception options, provides annual check-ups, answers your questions, and helps with your female sexual health concerns.

While a general physician can treat specific women’s health issues, the Women’s Health Specialists team specializes in expert care for women and their unique health concerns.

Your Women’s Health Specialist can also diagnose gynecological conditions, such as:

  • Endometriosis
  • Cervical Cancer
  • Vaginal Infections
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
  • Sexually Transmitted Diseases

The Women’s Health Specialists doctors also perform surgery when required.

A well-woman exam is an annual gynecological check-up to monitor your reproductive health. It’s an integral part of your preventive care.

During the exam, your Women’s Health Specialist examines your reproductive organs, performs a pap smear, offers tests for sexually transmitted diseases, conducts a breast exam, and can discuss your contraceptive options. Our providers also take the time to review your general health with you, including discussions on exercise, nutrition, mood disorders, and stress management.

For women who are at a higher risk for certain diseases and gynecological conditions, the physicians at Women’s Health Specialist of Dallas recommend more frequent well-woman exams.

Gynecology allows the Women’s Health Specialists to dedicate the necessary time and expertise to care for women through all stages of life.
