Gynecology Q&A

+ Why is an Annual Well-Woman Exam Important for My Health?

When you come in for routine well-woman care, your doctor at Hill Country OB/GYN can detect potential gynecological problems at their earliest stage, before they cause symptoms that might tip you off to a problem. Early detection means you can receive treatment to prevent serious health issues.

During your well-woman exam, you’ll also have time to talk with your doctor about any concerns you may have, such as planning for future pregnancy or discussing weight concerns.

Routine gynecologic care always includes taking your vitals (weight and blood pressure) and a thorough pelvic and breast exam. You may also receive any of the following:

  • Pap test
  • Birth control
  • Preconception planning
  • STD testing
  • Menopause management
  • Hormone replacement therapy
  • Urinary incontinence treatment
  • Immunizations as needed

+ When Should I Come in For an Appointment for Gynecological Problems?

Although you can always call Hill Country OB/GYN any time you have symptoms or questions about your health, you should schedule a visit if you experience:

  • Bleeding between periods or heavy bleeding
  • Frequent and urgent need to urinate
  • Burning during urination
  • Vaginal bleeding after menopause
  • Ongoing pain or pressure in your pelvic area
  • Vaginal itching or burning
  • Sores in your genital area
  • Vaginal discharge with unpleasant odor or unusual color
  • Pain or bleeding during intercourse

These symptoms are often easy to treat, but they can also be signs of a serious gynecological problem. For example, pelvic pain and heavy bleeding could be a sign of endometriosis, a condition that can affect your fertility.

+ How are Gynecological Problems Diagnosed and Treated?

The doctors at Hill Country OB/GYN protect your health with a variety of in-house diagnostic services, including high-quality ultrasounds. When they diagnose a gynecological problem, your treatment begins with the most conservative measures.

Should you need surgery, however, you can count on receiving the level of care you need. The doctors at Hill Country OB/GYN are experts in minimally invasive surgery, including today’s most advanced minimally invasive option — robotic-assisted surgery using the da Vinci® Surgical System.

You’ll find compassionate doctors you can trust for all your gynecological care at Hill Country OB/GYN. To schedule an appointment, call us today.
