Women need to have regular examinations of their reproductive organs. Not only does this help in monitoring for signs of cervical cancer, but it can be a great way to ensure overall health and wellness. At GYN Choices, we encourage women to see a gynecologist regularly to ensure their reproductive health. But what is a gynecologist, and what kinds of services do they provide?
What is a gynecologist?
Many woman in the East Brunswick, NJ area who schedule a visit with the team at GYN Choices may be unsure as to what professional they need to connect with for their unique needs. A gynecologist is a professional who focuses on reproductive health, but is not an obstetrician. An obstetrician focuses more on pregnancy and childbirth and is often seen during this time. However, a gynecologist has a better focus overall on a woman’s reproductive system. Most women see a gynecologist for reproductive health after they start their first period through to the post-menopause phase. They address issues that might impact the cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, and vagina.
