What’s a Gynecologist?

Gynecologists are doctors who specialize in women’s health issues and reproductive system. Many gynecologists are also obstetricians (OBs)—doctors who provide pregnancy and birth care.

Annual Exams

Protect and maintain your health by scheduling a well-woman visit with your gynecologist every year. This routine check-up focuses on preventive care, and may include:

  • Cancer screening including the pap test
  • Review of your health habits and history
  • Time to discuss your health concerns and goals
  • Physical exam, including a clinical breast exam and pelvic exam

Family Planning Services

Talk to your gynecologist about the best ways to prevent unintended pregnancy or to start your family. Your doctor can help you understand your options and decide which is right for you:

  • Planning and preparing to get pregnant
  • Contraception options such as
    • Natural family planning (fertility awareness)
    • Birth control pills
    • Intrauterine device (IUD)
    • Tubal ligation (“getting your tubes tied”)
