Women’s care includes the field of obstetrics and gynecology, crucial healthcare for all women. At Dr. Susan Fox’s Center for Women, women’s care in Miami is our specialty.
What is Included in Women’s Care?
Women’s care takes on many different meanings, and it is different for all women depending on each woman’s health care needs. For us, women’s care means taking care of women’s unique health needs, including their physical and mental health.
However, most often, women’s care involves obstetrics and gynecology, with health services like pap smears, breast cancer screenings, gynecological cancer screenings, pelvic pain evaluations, and urinary incontinence treatment.
When it comes to pregnancy care, OB/GYNs also offer pre-pregnancy planning services, prenatal care, pregnancy care, and postpartum care. At Dr. Susan Fox’s Center for Women, we offer a whole host of services for women of all ages and stages of life.
Additional pregnancy, labor, and delivery services include genetic screening, nurse midwifery, gestational diabetes management, and breastfeeding education, as well as further precautionary tests and services for women of advanced maternal age (generally age 35 and over).
Women’s care for you may also include some surgical procedures, such as hysterectomies, endometrial ablations, colposcopies, dilation and curettage, and transvaginal ultrasounds. Many of the surgical procedures performed by an OBGYN are minimally invasive, so they can be performed in-office.
While most OB/GYNs are generalists, some also have training in various subspecialties, like reproductive endocrinology and infertility or gynecologic oncology, which deals with diagnosing and treating cancers affecting a woman’s reproductive system.
If you would like a physician who’s more knowledgeable about a particular part of your body or a particular treatment, think about visiting a specialist for women’s care in Miami. Like other specialists, an OB/GYN should not be your only doctor or your primary care physician, as an OB/GYN is more focused on a particular part of the female body.
Part of the overall concept of women’s care is to make sure all of your bases are covered. When you ideally start to visit an OB/GYN as a teenager or young adult, that doctor will be able to continue guiding you through conceiving a child, pregnancy, labor, and delivery.
Your OB/GYN in Miami should be someone you trust, someone you can comfortably come back to every year during each stage of your life to give you the highest quality women’s care.
OB/GYNs may evaluate infertility, abnormal Pap smears, endometriosis, breast disorders, and incontinence; provide prenatal consultations, and monitor high-risk pregnancies and labor and delivery phases, including performing a cesarean section.
It’s typically recommended that teenagers see a gynecologist even before they turn 21. Although women technically do not need a Pap smear until they are 21, many specialists suggest that teenagers see a gynecologist early to discuss periods, sexual health, pregnancy, and sexually transmitted diseases.
Teenagers may also benefit from hormonal birth control to treat acne, irregular periods, and more. Besides annual appointments, you should see your OB/GYN if you run into any problems, such as painful periods or UTI symptoms.
