Gynecology care 

Complete gynecology care for all women

What is the difference between a gynecologist and an ob-gyn?  A gynecologist is a doctor who specializes in women’s reproductive health. And obstetrician is a doctor who specializes in pre-pregnancy, pregnancy, childbirth and reproduction. An ob-gyn is trained to do all of these things. 

Maintaining a regular, long-term relationship with a doctor is the best way to take control of your own health and stay on top of vaccines, screenings and overall wellness. From birth control to menopause, we are experts in women’s health and we are here for you.

Recognizing gynecologic problems 

Vaginal bleeding and discharge are a normal part of your menstrual cycle before menopause. But, if you notice anything different or unusual, talk to your healthcare provider. Don't try to treat the problem yourself. 

Symptoms may result from mild infections that are easy to treat. But, if they are not treated properly, they can lead to more serious conditions. Vaginal symptoms may also be a sign of more serious problems, such as cancers of the reproductive tract. 

Gynecological symptoms may look like other conditions. Always see your healthcare provider for a diagnosis. 

See your healthcare provider if you have any of these symptoms: 

  • Bleeding between periods
  • Frequent and urgent need to urinate, or a burning sensation during urination 
  • Abnormal vaginal bleeding 
  • Bleeding after menopause
  • Pain or pressure in your pelvis that differs from menstrual cramps 
  • Itching, burning, swelling, redness, or soreness in the vaginal area
  • Sores or lumps in the genital area
  • Vaginal discharge with an unpleasant or unusual odor, or of an unusual color
  • Increased vaginal discharge 

Recognizing symptoms early and seeing a healthcare provider right away increase the chances of successful treatment.
