At Women for Women Obstetrics and Gynecology, we take women’s health seriously. Our team is composed of highly qualified professionals, and we are committed to providing the best care available for everyone who walks through our doors. To help you get a better understanding of the level of care we provide, we’d like to go a bit in depth on what the job of a Women OBGYN who works with us is. By doing so, we hope you’ll choose to work with us in the future.
An OB-GYN, or obstetrician-gynecologist, is a medical professional who specializes in women’s health. Their expertise is in areas such as reproductive health, pregnancy, and childbirth. Our staff can also screen for cancer, treat infections, and perform surgery to help with pelvic and urinary tract issues.
Due to their vast amounts of training, the jobs of our OB-GYNs are broken out between obstetrics and gynecology. Obstetrics focuses mainly on the process from conception through childbirth. When you choose us as a care priority, the health of both you and your unborn child will be our top priority. Specifically, our staff will help will:
The second side of an OB-GYN’s responsibility revolves around gynecology. Gynecology involves the diagnosis and treatment of issues that arise in a women’s reproductive system. Our staff is well versed in monitoring the health of one’s:
Additionally to the reproductive system, gynecology also involves screening for issues in the breasts.
The prospect of starting a family is an exciting idea for many. While some women can go their entire pregnancy without any major issues, some women are not so lucky. A high-risk pregnancy is a term used to classify pregnancies that require help from a specialist to ensure the optimal outcome for both the mother and unborn child. At Women for Women Obstetrics and Gynecology, this is one of our areas of speciality. Many different causes can lead to a pregnancy becoming high-risk, and our team will be able to help with any of the below:
Just like with any other medical professional, scheduling routine appointments with your OB-GYN will help to ensure you remain as healthy as possible. As a general rule of thumb, women should schedule a pelvic exam once a year. However, there are certain times when the frequency of visits should increase, such as when you’re trying to start a family or have recently become pregnant. This frequency will vary on a patient to patient basis, and can be discussed with our staff.
By detailing the training and education an OB-GYN must go through, we hope to help ease any nerves you may have when contemplating visiting our practice. OB-GYNs need to receive a bachelor’s degree before going through an additional four years of medical school. Once they have completed medical school, they also go through a four year graduate level residency period where they focus on obstetrics and gynecology before they can start practicing full time.
As we’ve previously stated, OB-GYNs can treat a variety of ailments related to women’s health. If you find yourself dealing with any of the below, our team will be able to diagnose and treat the issue at hand:
Due to the private and sometimes invasive nature of these types of visits, our team understands it can be a bit uncomfortable to see an OB-GYN. However, we promise to always make these appointments as comfortable as possible for our patients. If you have additional questions about the job of a women OBGYN, or would like to schedule an appointment with our team, contact us today.
Pregnancies can be long and intimidating journeys, which is why it is so important to have the right support system and healthcare schedule to help you stay healthy and prevent any unusual problems. Pregnancy is broken into three parts; the first, second, and third trimester.
The first trimester is the first 12 weeks of your pregnancy, the second trimester is from week 13 to 28, and the third trimester is from week 29 to birth. Throughout your pregnancy, you should visit a healthcare specialist to check up on your baby and your pregnancy regularly, which is often referred to as parental health care. For OBGYN in Queens to check up on you and your baby, reach out to Women for Women Obstetrics and Gynecology to discover how we can help you have the healthiest pregnancy possible.
During pregnancy, your body can and will go through a lot of changes. These changes result from your baby growing as well as from the hormonal changes you experience during pregnancy. It can be anything from an increase in weight or urination to emotional ups and downs and changes in sexual desires. It’s important to know that these changes are normal, and you should be able to talk about them with your partner and/or prenatal health care specialist. It may also help to have a support system of friends and family to talk to and ask for help whenever you need it during this time. Having someone to talk to or be there with you even on your routine checkups or low points in your pregnancy can make all the difference.
Receiving regular prenatal health care is a very important part of having a healthy pregnancy. When you think you are pregnant you should call your provider and ask for a prenatal health care appointment. Your first appointment will usually be around your 8th week of pregnancy and will consist of a pregnancy test to determine how many weeks pregnant you are and to check-up on the health of you and your new baby.
After this, a schedule of regular visits will be developed for the rest of your pregnancy. Typically, this means a visit every 4 weeks until the 28th week, then every 2 weeks until the 36th week, and then every week until birth. In addition to these regular checkups, if there is any problem or if you feel any need to see your prenatal doctor you should call and make an appointment. For OBGYN in Queens, reach out to Women for Women Obstetrics and Gynecology and see how we can help you stay healthy and address any questions you may have.
