Gynecology Q & A

What is gynecology?

It’s important to regularly visit a gynecologist like Dr. Mayo to attend to the overall well-being of your complex reproductive system and intercept any potential for disease. Gynecology involves the health of a woman’s reproductive system that includes:

  • The vagina
  • The uterus
  • The ovaries
  • The breasts

Gynecology and obstetrics both focus on the female reproductive system and overlap in many procedures and treatments.

What kinds of services are related to gynecology?

You might visit a gynecologist like Dr. Mayo for different reasons, whether it’s for a routine Pap smear, or to manage cancer of the ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, vagina, or vulva. Gynecologists serve to prevent, manage, or treat various other types of diseases and abnormalities related to the female reproductive system, such as:

  • Incontinence of urine
  • Amenorrhoea, or absence of menstrual periods
  • Dysmenorrhoea, or painful menstrual periods
  • Menorrhagia, or heavy menstrual periods
  • Infertility
  • Urinary tract infection (also known as UTI)
