Gynecology Q & A

What is Gynecology?

Gynecology is a branch of medicine dedicated to women’s health, particularly their reproductive health. A gynecologist is a physician who specializes in gynecology.

Women’s health encompasses the following topics:

  • Reproductive health
  • Sexual health
  • Fertility
  • Pregnancy and childbirth
  • Female heart health


How Do I Take Care of My Gynecologic Health?

Preventive care is one of the best ways to protect your gynecologic health. Your lifestyle choices and habits have a significant effect on your gynecologic health, too.

Some of the practical ways you can take care of your gynecologic health include:

  • Scheduling regular visits and screenings with your gynecologist
  • Paying attention to your body and recognizing unfamiliar symptoms
  • Staying up-to-date on relevant vaccinations
  • Practicing safe sexual activity
  • Maintaining healthy habits such as exercising, eating a nutritious diet, and not smoking


When Should I See a Gynecologist?

You should make an appointment with your gynecologist at least once a year for your well-woman checkup and any recommended screenings. You should also make an appointment with your provider if you notice any abnormal symptoms.

You can see a qualified gynecologist at Louisiana Women’s Healthcare about any of the following:

  • Menstruation
  • Menopause
  • Family planning
  • Fertility
  • STDs
  • Birth control
  • Hormone issues
  • Breast health

How Do I Choose a Gynecologist?

Your gynecologist takes care of your most intimate health issues, so it’s important to find a practice that makes you feel comfortable. You might first start with researching which providers your insurance covers. From there, your provider’s credentials, procedure success rates, and personality are some factors to consider.

  • Credentials: Qualified gynecologists have to complete eight years of training, earn their gynecology board certification, and register with a professional organization. Every one of the physicians at Louisiana Women’s Healthcare meets these rigorous standards, often with decades of experience behind them.
  • Success Rate and Results: You may choose to check into your provider’s success rates and results for specific procedures (if they’re important to you). If you have concerns about C-section scars, for example, you can ask your provider about their expertise.
  • Personality: You want to make sure you feel comfortable enough with your provider to bring up your most intimate issues. The clinic strives to cultivate a compassionate, attentive environment, so you don’t hesitate to return.
