Gynecology Q & A

by Leonard Emma, MD

What is gynecology?

Gynecology is a medical specialty which focuses on the care of women and their reproductive organs. Gynecological services are provided at Stay Well Medical Care clinics to offer women the treatment they need for any and all reproductive health concerns. Medical conditions and illnesses are not uncommon among women and their reproductive organs. When problems like these arise, Dr. Emma will be able to address any concerns the woman is experiencing. Gynecology can also include the study of obstetrics or the care pregnant women including delivery. At the practice, Dr. Emma will be able to provide these services to patients as well. Physicians with these specialties, like Dr. Emma, are commonly referred to as OB/GYNs. With his advanced knowledge of the uterus, ovaries, and other reproductive organs, Dr. Emma will be able to identify any changes which could affect a woman’s health. Menstrual problems, caring for sexuality and providing birth control, treatment for menopause, and infertility will also fall under the purview of the doctor.

Why would I need to go to the gynecologist?

Every woman should be making regular, annual visits to the gynecologist’s office. It is recommended that women have these "Well Woman" exams performed to ensure their reproductive health is at its best. The gynecologist uses these checkups to monitor the woman’s overall health and how her body is controlling reproductive capabilities. These appointments will also be used to identify any issues existing with the organs before they become a more serious concern. If there is a problem, women can receive medications and advanced treatments from Dr. Emma. He can also discuss safe sex practices with the ladies and provide overviews of several types of available contraception. Frequently, women visit the office to have birth control pills prescribed, intrauterine devices (IUDs) inserted, and receive contraceptive injections. Dr. Emma will also be able to guide women through the process of conceiving a child, pregnancy, and birth.

What can a gynecologist treat?

A gynecologist can treat many illnesses or conditions which involve the female reproductive system. Dr. Emma has experience caring for heavy, abnormal, or painful menstrual periods, endometriosis, internal cysts, urinary tract infections (UTIs), yeast infections, and fibroids. The best way to ensure your reproductive and general health are in the best shape is to schedule an appointment with Dr. Emma.
