Should I See an OB/GYN?

The best way a woman can protect her health is through preventative care, which includes getting a yearly checkup. During an appointment with an OB/GYN, patients may undergo evaluations to obtain body fluid samples for lab tests that check for specific diseases. The tests you require will be determined by your OB/GYN depending on your age, overall health, and sexual history. Women are always encouraged to see an OB/GYN for pregnancy, prenatal care, menopause, or any reproductive or sexual health needs that concern them.

OB/GYNs commonly treat the following female health concerns:

  • Abnormal vaginal bleeding
  • Bacterial and viral sexually transmitted infections (STIs, also called STDs) and more
  • Endometriosis
  • Hormonal disorders
  • Infertility
  • Pelvic pain
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Urinary incontinence
