Gynecology Q & A

What is gynecology?

Gynecology focuses on women's health. It covers all the disorders unique to women, as well as conditions that are closely related, like urinary incontinence. Gynecologists also evaluate health problems that affect men as well but are particularly common in women, such as osteoporosis and breast cancer.

Some of the gynecological conditions Providence Women's Healthcare diagnoses and treats include:

  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Irregular menstruation
  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Pelvic prolapse
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV)
  • Menopause
  • Ovarian cysts 
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Pelvic pain
  • Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)

The practice also has a Wellness Center that focuses on whole-body health, nutrition, and weight loss and offers specialist adolescent gynecology care for girls going through puberty and beyond.

What are the available preventive health services for gynecological conditions?

Providence Women's Healthcare offers a range of preventive health services, including:

Annual exams

A yearly well-woman exam or routine check-up is an invaluable way of spotting health problems at an early stage. As well as a regular Pap smear to look for early signs of cervical cancer, your gynecologist can run tests for conditions like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and osteoporosis.

Breast and ovarian cancer screenings

Breast cancer screening typically involves a physical exam and a mammogram – a special X-ray of the breast. Ovarian cancer screening might consist of transvaginal ultrasound and a CA-125 blood test.

You can also visit Providence Women's Healthcare for STD (sexually transmitted disease) testing.

What reproductive services do gynecologists offer?

Providence Women's Healthcare provides reproductive services for women who want to prevent conception and those who are trying for a baby.

Contraceptive services include:

  • Birth control pills
  • Nexplanon® contraceptive implants
  • Intrauterine device (IUD) implantation
  • Patches and vaginal rings
  • Contraceptive injections
  • Laparoscopic sterilization

You can undergo an infertility evaluation and testing if you're having problems getting pregnant, followed by treatment to increase your chances of conceiving.

What are gynecological surgeries?

Providence Women's Healthcare OB/GYNs offer inpatient and outpatient gynecological surgery at top hospitals in the area, performing minimally invasive laparoscopic and hysteroscopic surgeries like tubal ligation.
