Gynecology Q&A

What is gynecology?

Gynecology is an area of medicine that specializes in women’s health — specifically, women’s reproductive health.

A woman’s life stages center around reproduction, beginning with the start of her period and ending with menopause. These life stages also affect women’s physical and emotional well-being, leading to health issues like painful periods or mood changes related to hormonal fluctuations during their menstrual cycle.

Women also face unique health issues that affect their reproductive organs like fibroids, endometriosis, and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). They’re also at greater risk of developing certain types of cancer, such as breast cancer and cervical cancer.

Dr. Howard is an experienced gynecologist who provides progressive and comprehensive care for women at his practice. 

When do I need gynecology care?

Women need gynecology care for their annual wellness exam and any time they experience health issues related to their reproductive organs.

Your annual wellness exam is the most important health visit of the year. The comprehensive exam allows Dr. Howard to get a general sense of your current health and risk of future health problems. 

You also need gynecology care when you have issues involving your reproductive organs, such as pelvic pain, heavy periods, or irregular periods. These symptoms may indicate an underlying gynecological condition that Dr. Howard can treat, easing your symptoms.
