Gynecology Q & A

What is included in gynecological care?

A woman’s comprehensive wellness involves optimal gynecological health. Gynecology encompasses a wide variety of issues dealing with your pelvic and reproductive organs. Dr. Guballa addresses issues such as:

  • Yearly wellness exams
  • Yeast infections
  • STDs, such as chlamydia and herpes
  • Teen health
  • Contraception
  • Endometriosis
  • Vaginitis
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome

Preventive care with Pap smears and other screenings is also an important part of your care. With regular visits, Dr. Guballa gets to know you and your health patterns. She can identify any issues that arise early and treat them before they develop into serious complications. 

What does routine gynecology care entail?

Routine gynecology care includes regular well-woman visits that monitor your health. At these appointments, Dr. Guballa reviews your health and goes over any pressing questions about menstrual cycles, sexuality, or unusual symptoms. The office team updates any changes to your medical history and life situation, such as a change in address or marital status. 

At these well-woman visits, Dr. Guballa evaluates your overall health and wellness, emphasizing your breast health and pelvic organs. You undergo a thorough pelvic exam, including a Pap test and a clinical breast exam. You’ll also learn of important screenings you might need, including mammograms, to stay on top of your health. 

Annual pelvic exams are an important part of your gynecological health as you approach your late teens or early 20s. You should continue with annual visits throughout your childbearing years and they should persist even past menopause. Your gynecological needs change during each phase of your life, but the need for an annual visit and regular care doesn’t.

What health issues can I raise during annual exams?

Use the appointment as an opportunity to discuss any concerns surrounding:

  • Menstruation
  • Birth control, such as prescription pills and IUDs
  • STDs
  • Plans for pregnancy
  • Unusual symptoms vaginal discharge, odor or irregular bleeding
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Urinary dysfunction
  • Pain
  • Symptoms of endometriosis

Dr. Guballa takes time with each of her patients to identify any unique gynecological concerns and needs.
