What is gynecology?
Gynecology is a medical field that specializes in the health of a woman’s reproductive system, including the external genitalia, vagina, uterus, ovaries, and breasts. A gynecologist monitors each of these organs for signs of trouble to ensure early detection of gynecologic conditions for the best possible treatment outcomes.
General gynecology is focused on the non-pregnant reproductive system. Obstetrics is a separate specialty that concerns the health of mother and baby during pregnancy and delivery. Dr. Hobbs has expertise in both of these fields.
How often do I need to see a gynecologist?
Teens and women should have a well-woman exam every year, and Dr. Hobbs provides exams for women ages 15 and older. A well-woman visit includes a pelvic exam and screenings for cervical and breast cancer. You’ll also have plenty of time to ask questions and discuss concerns with Dr. Hobbs.
For healthy women, a Pap test is recommended every one to two years. If you’ve had an abnormal Pap test, or you have certain health conditions, your gynecologist may recommend more frequent Pap tests.
