Gynecology is medical care that deals with women’s and girls’ reproductive system. Gynecology is about keeping them healthy as well as treating medical conditions and illnesses having to do with the reproductive system. An obstetrician-gynecologist (ob-gyn) is a doctor who specializes in women’s health care. Choices also has “mid-level providers,” Midwives, Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants who also provide gynecological care.
Your first visit to a gynecologist should be between the ages of 13 years and 15 years. The first visit can range from just a talk between you and your doctor to having certain testing or exams done. All information shared with your provider is kept confidential.
A Pap test (also known as a Pap Smear) is a test for cervical cancer. It is one of the most important gynecology tests a woman should have on a regular basis to keep healthy. In an examination room, the doctor gently swabs a tiny sample of cells from the patient’s cervix (the opening of the uterus). The sample is then sent to a lab to test for any abnormal cells. Abnormal cells do not mean the patient has cervical cancer, but further tests may be needed.
