Gynecology Q & A

What is gynecology?

Gynecology services at Serenity Women's Care include the prevention, detection, diagnosis, and treatment of women’s health issues. Examples include:

  • Weight management
  • Birth control management
  • Annual well-woman exams
  • Menopause and perimenopause treatment
  • Hormone management, including hormone pellet therapy
  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD) screening and treatment
  • Pap tests
  • Abnormal bleeding management
  • Osteoporosis care
  • Breast health care

The specialists at Serenity Women's Care help with family planning but don’t offer obstetrics services. They do provide in-office lab work/blood draws.

What should I expect during a women’s health exam?

When you arrive at a well-woman exam, your practitioner reviews your medical history and checks your blood pressure and other vital signs in a warm, welcoming environment. They complete a head-to-toe physical exam, including a pelvic exam and Pap test when necessary.

During a Pap test, you place your feet in stirrups, and your provider inserts a speculum into your vagina. They take a sample of tissue from your cervix and submit it to a lab for analysis to check for signs of cervical cancer. Your practitioner completes a breast exam and lets you know if you’re due for a mammogram.

They might order blood or imaging tests to rule out or confirm a diagnosis if you exhibit signs or symptoms of a woman's health condition. Your provider offers flu vaccines and other vaccines that keep you healthy. 

They use weight loss counseling and medications or supplements to control your appetite, so you can achieve your goal weight with ease.

Which treatment might I require?

If you’re otherwise healthy with no signs of a health condition, you might not require any treatment. Talk with your women’s health specialist if you’re interested in birth control or desire hormone replacement therapy for menopause or perimenopause symptoms.

If you have low bone density, osteoporosis, high cholesterol, high blood sugar, or high blood pressure, taking medications helps prevent your chronic disease from progressing and the complications associated with it.

If you have gynecological health conditions, such as heavy menstrual bleeding requiring minimally invasive surgery, your practitioner discusses treatment options with you.

How often should I schedule a well-woman exam?

As a rule, schedule a well-woman exam annually or more often if your provider recommends it. Take control of your health to prevent women’s health conditions from arising or becoming serious. Schedule an annual well-woman exam today, or use the online booking tool.
