Gynecologic Care Q & A

What is gynecological care?

In its most basic definition, gynecological care involves your:

  • Vagina
  • Cervix
  • Uterus
  • Ovaries
  • Fallopian tubes
  • Breasts

Within those five components that constitute your reproductive system are a host of conditions, concerns, and potential problems that deserve specialized care.

As a woman, your reproductive system has a way of controlling your health, and any problems in this area can have a cascading effect on your overall wellness. Now add the fact that your reproductive health is continually changing as you travel through womanhood, from the early days of puberty on through childbearing and beyond.

Thanks to this system, your healthcare needs are constantly changing, which is where good gynecological care comes in.

What are the most common gynecological problems?
