Gynecology provides care for issues dealing with your pelvic and reproductive organs. Issues addressed by Dr. Killingsworth, Dr. Middleton and Dr. Troxler include, but aren’t limited to:
The doctors provide evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment, along with preventive gynecological care.
A woman’s annual exam is a primary part of routine gynecological care. During a well-woman visit, the doctors from Inspire Ob/Gyn, LLC evaluate your health and wellness, including your reproductive health, breast health, and pelvic organs – such as your bladder. Women should start having an annual exam in their teenage years (this visit usually doesn’t include a pelvic exam) and keep up with regular visits through and after menopause.
During a well-woman visit, you undergo a pelvic exam, a clinical breast exam, and any necessary screenings. This visit is an opportunity to discuss your period, birth control, pregnancy, menopause, sexually transmitted diseases, and any symptoms you may have. Specific symptoms to share with your Inspire Ob/Gyn, LLC provider include vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, or heavy menstrual bleeding.
Routine screening tests include the Pap smear, which looks for abnormal cells on your cervix and can prevent complications from cervical cancer. An HPV test checks for human papillomavirus, a common sexually transmitted disease. You should undergo a Pap smear every three years from age 21-65. These Pap smears may be performed every five years if you also have HPV testing. Women at a higher risk of cervical cancer may need more frequent screenings.
STD tests aren’t routine at your women’s wellness exam, but, Dr. Killingsworth, Dr. Middleton, and Dr. Troxler order the screenings if you request them. Women who engage in intercourse with multiple partners or are not in a mutually monogamous relationship should have regular STD testing.
The doctors may order additional screening, including ultrasound, blood tests, and urine tests, if symptoms suggest these tests are necessary. Pain in the vagina, unusual vaginal discharge, and cramping can indicate a urinary tract infection or vaginitis. Both of these conditions can be evaluated as part of gynecology care.
Usually, Dr. Killingsworth, Dr. Middleton and Dr. Troxler recommend yearly mammograms beginning at age 40. Your family history, personal history, and presentation of any symptoms may indicate you need one earlier or more frequently.
