Gynecology is a specialty of medicine that focuses on the female reproductive system, the opposite of what andrology is for men. Also similarly, it is common for gynecologists to have a secondary specialty, which most of the time tends to be obstetrics. Women are recommended to see a gynecologist for regular check-ups from the age of 13, so they are also one of the most often seen specialists. Many gynecologists also have subspecialties and training including breast care, surgery, pelvic medicine, and family planning.
Gynecologists provide many types of healthcare services to women. Some of these services includes testing and treatment for vaginal infections, Pap tests, cancer screenings, and pelvic exams. They also provide various treatment for disorders of the female reproductive system. Some of these disorders are ovarian cysts, endometriosis, pelvic pain, and infertility. They may also work with oncologists to care for patients with reproductive cancers such as ovarian, cervical, and more.
Telehealth is being used in many ways today to assist gynecologists, with virtual visits becoming more accepted as a form of consultation. As mentioned earlier, it is recommended for women to have regular visits with a gynecologist, so having some check-ups done virtually may eliminate the need to go in for a physical exam if no noticeable issues are seen. With some telehealth solutions today, gynecologists are able to provide assistance in managing medications digitally, easing the process for patients. These solutions may also allow for faster sharing of lab results, saving time for both the specialist and the patient, eliminating a long wait for a what may be a short appointment. Telehealth can also be a good option to provide post-op care, allowing doctors to provide advice and treatment plans better with improved continuity of care.
