General Gynecology Q & A

Why is general gynecology care important?

Receiving regular gynecological care is essential to a woman’s health and should be a regular part of your medical routine. By seeing your OB/GYN for a yearly examination, you receive screenings for specific cancers and conditions, as well as evaluations and counseling in any other areas of concern.

Through these appointments, Dr. Lee gives you the opportunity to discuss any issues you’re having with your reproductive or gynecological health, including:

  • Incontinence
  • Sexual function
  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • Depression and mood shifts
  • Hormonal changes
  • Menstruation
  • Fertility
  • Pregnancy

What services are part of general gynecology care?

When you see Dr. Lee for your yearly gynecology appointment, he may perform a variety of procedures and services during your exam. Some of the most common include:

  • Pap smear
  • Mammogram
  • Ultrasound
  • Colposcopy
  • Endometrial biopsy
  • Hysteroscopy
  • Cancer screening
  • STD testing
  • Contraceptive counseling
  • Menopause management

He also conducts a pelvic and breast exam, looking for lumps and abnormalities that may be an indicator of more significant problems.

Dr. Lee may counsel you for a variety of health-related issues, such as smoking cessation or practicing safe sex. If you’re at risk for developing osteoporosis, he may discuss your options, including taking a calcium supplement.

When should you seek gynecology care?

Dr. Lee suggests most patients start seeing an OB/GYN between 13-15 years of age. That allows the patient to build a relationship with the doctor, and begin getting comfortable discussing such things as:

  • Menstruation
  • Sex
  • Contraceptives
  • Emotions
  • Acne
  • STDs

Beyond seeing your OB/GYN for screenings and preventive services, you should also seek their care when you’re experiencing pain or abnormalities in your reproductive system. These may include issues with your menstruation cycle, menopause, or discomfort during intercourse. If you think you may have an infection, you should also schedule an appointment with Dr. Lee.

If you’re looking for an OB/GYN with experience and know-how, schedule an appointment with Dr. Lee. Call the office now or go online to book your consultation.
