Gynecology Q & A

Why do I need a gynecologist?

A gynecologist is a doctor who specializes in the female reproductive system, which has a wide impact on your overall health, whether or not you have children.

In fact, a woman’s life can arguably be divided into three stages, which are regulated by your reproductive system:

  • Passage through puberty
  • Your reproductive years
  • Your menopausal and post-menopausal years

The gynecologists at OBGYN Westside help you navigate each of these cycles of their lives through vigilant monitoring, diligent screening, and compassionate care.

What services are offered under gynecologic care?

While your reproductive system may physically seem comparatively small to the rest of your body’s systems, its effect on your health and wellness cannot be understated.

  • Preventive care through women’s wellness exams
