What is gynecology?

Gynecology is a branch of medicine that focuses on the health of the female reproductive system, including the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, and vagina.

When do I need gynecology care?

Experts recommend that you visit your gynecologist once a year for a well-woman visit. The purpose of this checkup is to assess your overall health. Issues and detection of any cancerous or precancerous cells in the cervix can be caught early. This yearly exam can help you stay healthy and prevent health problems at all stages of life.
