Gynecology Q & A

What is gynecology?

Gynecology involves prevention, screening, detection, and treatment of women’s health and gynecological conditions. Gynecologists at Murphy Medical Associates have almost two decades of experience treating women for a wide array of medical issues.

What are gynecological conditions?

Women’s gynecological conditions the Murphy Medical Associates team can screen for or treat include:

  • Breast, ovarian, and cervical cancers
  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • Infertility
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Osteoporosis
  • Vaginal dryness and other symptoms of hormone imbalance
  • Fibroids and cysts
  • Endometriosis
  • Pelvic inflammatory diseases (PID)
  • Abnormal uterine bleeding

If you experience pelvic pain, fatigue, abnormal menstrual bleeding, or other unusual symptoms of a gynecological condition, see the Murphy Medical Associates team for an evaluation. 

What happens during gynecology exams?

During gynecology exams at Murphy Medical Associates, your gynecologist reviews your medical history and discusses your symptoms. They check your vital signs and complete a physical exam, including a pelvic exam to evaluate your reproductive organs.

Your provider may complete a Pap test by taking a sample of cervical cells to screen for cervical cancer. They might use blood tests, hysteroscopy, ultrasound, or other imaging procedures to detect or rule out specific women’s health issues. Your gynecologist answers questions you may have about your gynecological health.

Will I require treatment?

After a women’s health exam your gynecologist lets you know if you require in-office treatment or care from a specialist for complex cases. They offer various forms of birth control, family planning services, and optional immunizations. Your personalized gynecology treatment plan might include:

  • Further diagnostic testing
  • Medications
  • Dietary changes
  • Other lifestyle changes
  • Hormone replacement therapy
  • Vaginal revitalization
  • Minimally invasive procedures

If you’re in good health, no treatment is necessary.

How often should I schedule an appointment?

Schedule a women’s health exam every year for preventive medicine and routine screenings or more frequently if your Murphy Medical Associates provider recommends it. Make an appointment with your gynecologist if you experience infertility, pelvic pain, irregular bleeding, or other unusual symptoms.

Don’t let gynecological conditions go undetected or lead to serious complications. Schedule an appointment with Murphey Medical Associates over the phone or online today.
