Gynecological health entails maintaining healthy reproductive organs which includes regularly seeing a gynecologist for check-ups. It is important for adolescents to begin seeing a gynecologist when they first get their period, not necessarily for an exam but so they can understand the significance of having a doctor you can trust, and to see the value of an open conversation about their gynecological health. This also provides adolescents a chance to discuss any sexual activity or questions surrounding sexuality that they may have and do not feel comfortable addressing with a parent. Our doctors are expertly trained and ready to answer these questions. By starting young, routine exams will be a normal part of life as they age.
Gynecological health isn’t just important for adolescents, though. Women of all ages need regular appointments with their gynecologist to address concerns and to receive an examination and proper testing. Before you arrive to your appointment, be prepared to discuss your menstrual cycle, sexual activity, and any changes you notice, also update us on any changes in your medical history. This information will help us during the examination. We want to have a conversation about your gynecological health that is specific and personalized for you.
