A regular gynecologic exam should be an important part of every woman's health care regimen; it is key to her total health and well-being. Throughout a woman's life, a number of problems can occur involving the reproductive organs. By visiting Moscow Pullman OB/GYN on a regular basis, our physicians are able to detect problems and treat them before they have an opportunity to worsen. For example, cancer of the breast or cervix can be detected in its early stages by undergoing regular examinations performed by our health care professionals.
For patients who are considering having children, regular obstetric care should begin before a woman becomes pregnant. At Moscow Pullman OB/GYN, we believe that by monitoring a woman's overall health, we're able to help her plan in advance for a healthy pregnancy and baby. Additionally, our health care experts provide preventive care guidelines and advice that help our patients remain healthy in areas such as diet, nutrition, and sexually transmitted diseases.
After taking your medical history and completing a physical examination, your Moscow Pullman OB/GYN doctor will discuss the results with you and answer any questions you might have. During this visit, our patients often ask us about such topics as:
- Cancer signs
- Breast self-exams
- Drug use
- Menopause symptoms and treatment options
- Sexuality/sex drive
- Types of birth control
- Having a baby
- Disorders that can be inherited
- Vitamins and supplements
Should your Moscow Pullman OB/GYN lab results happen to show anything unusual, our health care professionals will discuss the results and any implications to your future good health.
