Gynecology Q & A

What is gynecology?

Gynecology is a field of medicine that focuses on the health and function of a woman’s reproductive system and sexual health.

An MIG gynecology specialist can address a wide range of issues that affect your health, including:

  • Infertility

  • Fibroids

  • Pelvic pain

  • Ovarian cysts

  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)

  • Endometriosis

  • Irregular bleeding

  • Sexual dysfunction

  • Menopause

  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)

  • Cancers of the breast and reproductive system

Your MIG provider’s office features advanced diagnostic technologies, including ultrasound and hysteroscopy, to accurately diagnose the cause of pelvic pain, irregular bleeding, and other unexplained symptoms.

Older women can get help with symptoms of menopause that interfere with their quality of life. Menopause is a natural part of aging that describes the end of your childbearing years, when you no longer get a period.

What are the available gynecology services?

Your MIG provider offers comprehensive gynecology services to diagnose and treat conditions that affect your reproductive and sexual health. Available services include:

  • Well-woman exams

  • Pregnancy testing

  • Pap smears to screen for cervical cancer

  • STD testing

  • Breast exams

  • Birth control counseling

  • Hormone replacement

Your MIG gynecology specialist also offers resources to protect your overall health with recommendations for daily exercise, a healthy diet, and other lifestyle improvements.

What happens during a well-woman exam?

The well-woman exams your MIG provider offers are preventive exams that you should schedule once a year, even if you don’t have symptoms of a problem. The exam gives them an opportunity to assess your overall health and identify potential issues in the earliest stages.

In addition to reviewing your personal and family medical history, you can expect your provider to perform a pelvic exam. 

During the pelvic exam, your gynecology provider can complete a Pap smear, collecting a sample of cervical cells to test for cancerous and precancerous changes. They may also test for human papillomavirus (HPV) and take blood to test for STDs like gonorrhea or chlamydia.

You have the opportunity to discuss any concerns or issues you have with your overall physical and mental health and your sexual function with your MIG provider. They can also provide birth control recommendations to prevent unintended pregnancies or correct hormone imbalances.
