Gynecology is the overarching field of women’s health from puberty through adulthood. It represents most of the reproductive care you’ll receive during your lifetime. As a woman, regular visits to the gynecologist are important for your long-term health. These visits are important for breast cancer and cervical cancer screenings as well as routine checkups for overall health. You should start planning out your gynecology visits by age 18. The exam can include a review of your medical and surgical history, pap smear, pelvic exam, breast exam, health counseling and lab tests.
At Baptist Health our gynecological specialists listen to each woman’s specific needs and are here to provide support, advice, and medical expertise so you can focus on your health and well-being.
