Do I need to see a gynecologist if I am a teenager?
HCA Virginia answeredIf you are in your teens, you should establish a relationship with an obstetrician/gynecologist (OB/GYN) with whom you feel comfortable and can discuss health issues honestly. Her or she will address your concerns regarding menstrual issues, contraception and prevention of sexually transmitted diseases. Your OB/GYN will also discuss appropriate vaccinations, including prevention options for human papillomavirus (HPV), the virus that causes cervical cancer. Internal pelvic exams are unnecessary at this stage unless needed to address a specific problem. Open and honest dialogue with parents or guardians is a good idea at this time as well.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
Why didn't my doctor diagnose my urogynecological problem?
If you're frustrated – or confused – about your medical care for urogynecological issues, it’s worth looking for a team approach. In this video, Dr. Kevin Benson of Sanford Health explains why coordinated care – with an ob-gyn, gastroenterologist and physical therapist – can help patients get the best results.
What is the leading cause of death in women?
Celeste Robb-Nicholson, Internal Medicine, answeredAlthough cancer still ranks at the top of women's health fears, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in women. Women are nine times more likely to succumb to cardiovascular disease than to breast cancer, but heart disease encroaches more stealthily; its symptoms may be more subtle and begin about a decade later in women than they do in men, and it usually doesn't kill until women are over 70.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
