A doctor who specializes in health issues specific to women is a gynecologist (GYN). Female reproductive health is typically the focus of gynecology. When the medical focus is on pregancy and childbirth, an obstetrician (OB) is consulted. Naturally, many gynecologists are also obstetricians (OB/GYN). Southwest Medical Group in Cortez, Colorado has a Board Certified team of physicians ready to address women’s health in the Four Corners area.
Who should visit a gynecologist?
Women of all ages may visit with a gynecologist or OB/GYN. Young women in their early teens are becoming sexually mature. A gynecologist can help them understand changes to their body. Even if a woman hasn’t been pregnant, as she ages she may have female health concerns. A gynecologist can help women through pregnancy, menstruation, fertility and menopause.
Women may visit with their gynecologist for other conditions relevant to the female health, such as:
- family planning
- inflammation and abscesses of the pelvis
- sexual dysfunction
