Compassionate and expert gynecology services

Gynecology is a branch of medicine focused on the health of the female reproductive system. It involves diagnosing, treating, and preventing conditions related to the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and breasts. Gynecologists provide care across various stages of a woman's life, addressing issues like reproductive health, menstruation, fertility, pregnancy, and menopause, offering examinations, treatments, and guidance for maintaining overall reproductive wellness.

OB-GYNs provide care for women of all ages. These physicians practice both gynecology and obstetrics — the medicine and science of childbirth and its aftercare.

Yes, you can still see your OB-GYN while on your period. Menstrual bleeding will not interfere with a pelvic exam. 

After your first positive pregnancy test, most OB-GYNs will see you within 8 weeks after your last menstrual cycle. 

Your first visit to an OB-GYN can include a discussion with your doctor about your vaginal health and sexual history as well as a few exams, such as a general physical and/or an external exam of your genitals. It is unlikely that you will need to have a pelvic exam or a Pap test at your first gynecology appointment. 

Many insurance plans consider OB-GYNs “specialists” instead of primary care providers, however, some insurance companies will consider them primary care providers for women. It’s always in your best interest when finding out what your insurance plan covers to call your insurance provider and make sure whether or not you will need to budget for a primary care copay or a specialist copay when seeing your OB-GYN. 

Between the ages of 13-15 is the ideal time for someone’s first gynecology appointment.  

Make sure to first understand why you’re going to see your OB-GYN. Is it for your yearly wellness visit or to discuss a specific concern such as birth control, testing for sexually transmitted infections, or other concerns with your vaginal health. This is also the perfect time to ask your OB-GYN any questions you may have. Prepare a list of things you’ve been wanting to know so you can discuss them with your doctor.
