Gynecology Q & A

What is gynecology?

Gynecology is a field of medicine that focuses on the health and function of the female reproductive system.

The gynecologists at Oakland Macomb Obstetrics & Gynecology, P.C., diagnose and treat a wide range of health issues that affect a woman’s reproductive health, sexual health, and overall well-being.

What are the available gynecology services?

Oakland Macomb Obstetrics & Gynecology, P.C., offers comprehensive gynecology services, including:

Well-woman exams

Well-woman exams monitor your general and reproductive health, even when you’re not having symptoms. Annual wellness visits allow your provider to evaluate changes in your health from one year to the next.

These exams also feature preventive screenings like Pap smears, breast exams, and mammograms to detect cancer and other conditions in the earliest stages.

Diagnostic care

Oakland Macomb Obstetrics & Gynecology, P.C., offers advanced technologies on-site for diagnosing health conditions like fibroids, ovarian cysts, and endometriosis. Diagnostic services are also available for polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), heavy vaginal bleeding, pelvic pain, and other unexplained symptoms.

Menopause counseling

Menopause signals the end of your childbearing years and your period. The decline in your reproductive hormones can trigger a variety of symptoms, such as anxiety and hot flashes, that can be severe enough to interfere with your daily life, as well as contribute to osteoporosis. 

The gynecology providers offer compassionate care to help you manage your symptoms and make the transition to menopause easier.

Sexual wellness services

The providers at Oakland Macomb Obstetrics & Gynecology, P.C., offer a variety of services to address your sexual wellness. They can address vaginal dryness, painful sex, low sex drive, and other concerns.

In-office gynecologic procedures

If conservative therapies aren’t enough to treat conditions like abnormal vaginal bleeding and fibroids, you may need a minimally invasive gynecologic procedure.

Oakland Macomb Obstetrics & Gynecology, P.C., offers several in-office procedures, including myomectomy (removal of fibroids), abnormal cervical cell biopsies, and endometrial ablation to treat underlying issues without hospitalization.

Gynecologic surgery

Total hysterectomy services are available to remove the uterus and cervix. The surgeons use a variety of surgical techniques for hysterectomies, including a vaginal approach, a laparoscopic approach, and traditional open surgery. They also rely on the precision of the advanced da Vinci® robotic surgery system to assist in surgery.

You can also benefit from birth control counseling at Oakland Macomb Obstetrics & Gynecology, P.C.

How often do I need to see a gynecologist?

The providers at Oakland Macomb Obstetrics & Gynecology, P.C., recommend scheduling well-woman exams once a year for an overall health evaluation. Adolescents can meet with a provider starting after they get their first period, around age 13.

For women 21 and up, the providers recommend a Pap smear every few years, depending on age and personal and family medical history.

You should also schedule an appointment at Oakland Macomb Obstetrics & Gynecology, P.C., if you have unexplained symptoms like heavy bleeding or pelvic pain that may indicate an underlying medical condition.

If you’re not able to become pregnant after having unprotected sex for at least a year, or six months if over 35, you can consult with the fertility specialists to discuss available options.
