They give vaccines
Vaccinations are an important part of women’s healthcare. But, many don’t realize women’s specialists can administer them, leading them to make multiple doctor appointments, when one would do. Your women’s physician can administer a variety of vaccinations such as your annual flu shot, Tdap, and more. While it is a good idea for everyone to get these shots as needed, it is especially important that pregnant women protect themselves, leading my obstetricians and OBGYNs to give these shots in their offices.
They test for STDs and STIs
Being exposed to a sexually transmitted disease or infections is scary, and you may not know where to turn. Women’s specialists can help. They can perform STD and STI testing and, depending on the results, chart a course for treating them or managing them. They can also answer questions about safe sex practices to help keep you protected going forward.
They give wellness exams
Many people start having regular exams in high school. Often, a sports physician is required to participate. These regular visits continue into adulthood. But, for women, a visit to women’s specialists, not just general physicians, for an annual wellness exam is a must. These visits allow your doctor to check the health of your reproductive organs, something traditional exams don’t do. Since early detection is essential to the treatment of many diseases such as breast cancer, these exams play a critical role in keeping women healthy.
They treat menopause
Menopause is something every woman will go through. And though it isn’t something that is cured, it something women’s specialists can help manage symptoms of. Some women may feel they need to go it alone or can stop seeing their women’s physician. But, these doctors can help you navigate your menopausal years, manage your symptoms, and continue to monitor your health.
