Gynecology Q & A

What is gynecology?

In the simplest of definitions, gynecology is health care devoted to women, with an emphasis on reproductive health. What isn’t so simple are the myriad health issues, concerns, and routine care that falls under this heading.

Gynecological care starts when your reproductive hormones come online and you pass through puberty, which marks your entrance into your reproductive years. Whether or not you have children, you still need good gynecological care during this period as your body cycles every month in preparation for fertilization. And when your body passes through menopause into your nonreproductive years, gynecologists like Dr. Gray and Dr. Maslyak help make this transition as smooth as possible.

Ultimately, your gynecologist plays a key medical role in every stage of your life, helping you navigate the sometimes tumultuous waters of womanhood.

What are the most common health problems women face?

As a woman, you have organs that are devoted to reproduction, including your:

  • Vagina
  • Ovaries
  • Fallopian tubes
  • Uterus
  • Breasts

You also have specific hormones that are responsible for your reproductive health and your female characteristics. The health issues that involve these two areas are incredibly numerous, but the following should give you an idea of the scope and breadth of problems that gynecology covers:

  • Endometriosis
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Sexually transmitted diseases
  • Pelvic infections
  • Reproductive cancers
  • Dysmenorrhea, or painful periods

Again, this list is by no means comprehensive of all the problems that may arise as a result of your reproductive system. The other side of gynecologic care are the routine services that Dr. Gray and Dr. Maslyak provide, including:

  • STD testing
  • Annual wellness exams
  • Birth control
  • Cancer screening

The bottom line is that your gynecologist at Women to Women OB GYN Care provides health and wellness services that address most medical issues that a woman can face.

How often should I seek gynecological care?

While you should see Dr. Gray or Dr. Maslyak at least once a year for your annual well-woman exam, their doors are open any time you have a problem. The gynecologists form partnerships with you when you’re their patient and understand your physical and mental health care needs and do everything in their power to ensure that you lead a healthy and happy life.
