Gynecological Care Q & A

Why is an annual wellness exam so important for your health?

A woman’s wellness exam focuses on preventing disease and maintaining optimal health. When you get a routine exam, small changes in your body can be identified early enough to take steps to prevent disease from developing. In many cases, the doctors at Capri Medical can detect potential health problems before you notice symptoms.

When you schedule a preventive exam, the time you spend in the office is dedicated to you and your gynecology concerns, so it’s your opportunity to ask questions. Whether you’re worried about diet, wonder about preconception care or you’re interested in non-invasive aesthetic procedures like body sculpting or facial rejuvenation, this is a good time to talk.

When should you seek help for gynecologic problems?

Don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment at Capri Medical any time you have a gynecologic concern, but please be sure to consult your doctor if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Bleeding between periods
  • Frequent, urgent need to urinate or burning during urination
  • Abnormal vaginal bleeding - heavy, prolonged, or bleeding during or after intercourse
  • Pain or discomfort during intercourse
  • Pelvic pain
  • Feeling of pressure in your pelvis
  • Itching, burning, swelling or soreness in the vaginal area
  • Abnormal vaginal discharge

These symptoms often arise from issues that are easy to treat, but they can also be signs of a more serious gynecologic problem. For example, pelvic pain may be a symptom of uterine fibroids or endometriosis.

The doctors at Capri Medical provide a wide range of in-house diagnostic procedures, including specialized ultrasonography, endometrial biopsy, and polyp removal. They’re also experts at minimally invasive surgery, so they can treat your gynecologic problem, often in the office.
