A gynecologist specializes in caring for the reproductive health of a woman from the time she gets her first period all the way to post-menopause.
Any conditions that affect the reproductive system, such as those with the cervix, uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, or vagina, are diagnosed and treated by a gynecologist. Gynecologists also perform recommended screenings such as breast exams, pap smears, and pelvic exams. They also perform hysterectomies and tubal ligations. A gynecologist can also provide human papillomavirus (HPV) shots to protect against cancer-causing HPV.
Gynecologists can also provide advice on sexual matters, such as responsible sexual practices, contraceptives, and protection against sexually transmitted diseases. All in all, if it’s a non-pregnancy issue that is related to female reproductive health, a gynecologist can take care of it.
A gynecologist may diagnose and treat issues, such as:
Conditions that cause pain during sex
Cancers of the reproductive system
Prolapse of pelvic organs
Cervical and vaginal polyps
