Top 3 Common Conditions Your OB/GYN Can Treat

As a woman, your reproductive care is an important part of your wellness. Having a OB/GYN as part of your wellness team can help you stay healthy. It is not just during pregnancy that an OB/GYN is necessary. There are many other reproductive issues that your doctor can treat if needed. Here are three common health issues that you want treated by an OB/GYN.

  1. Abnormal menstrual bleeding. If your menstrual periods are too heavy, too light or change in frequency, you should see an OB/GYN. This can be a sign of internal issues in your uterus. Fibroids, polyps and other conditions can change the flow of your period and may cause other issues.
  2. STDs. Getting tested for STDs and receiving treatment is something you want to have done by your OB/GYN. If you are sexually active and change partners, you want to ensure you do not contract an STD that could affect your health or fertility. Common STDs include chlamydia, herpes, HPV, hepatitis B, HIV and genital warts.
  3. Urinary incontinence. Your OB/GYN can help with other issues beyond reproductive help. If you are having problems with urinary incontinence, they can help diagnose the problem and offer treatment solutions. Many women prefer to see their OB/GYN for incontinence versus a urologist; both types of doctor can help with incontinence treatment for women.

Having a qualified OB/GYN on your healthcare team can help you protect your reproductive wellness throughout the different phases of your life. From conception and pregnancy to menstrual problems and menopause, your OB/GYN is the specialist to turn to for your reproductive issues at any age.
