Gynecology Q & A

What does a gynecologist do?

A gynecologist is a specialist who has extensive training in caring for women, especially a woman’s reproductive system. Your gynecologist is your go-to practitioner for:

  • Laparoscopic-assisted vaginal hysterectomy
  • Endometriosis or cervical dysplasia treatment
  • Urinary incontinence (urogynecology)
  • Tubal ligation or tubal reversal
  • Family planning and birth control
  • Supracervical hysterectomy
  • Total abdominal hysterectomy
  • Gynecological surgeries
  • Well-woman exams
  • Menopause symptoms
  • Chronic pelvic pain
  • Abnormal periods
  • Hysteroscopy
  • Colposcopy

Generally, you begin seeing a gynecologist right around the time you first start menstruating early in your teens, all the way through menopause and beyond.

How often do I need to see a gynecologist?

Dr. Zikria generally wants to see you once a year for a preventive well-woman exam. Of course, there are times when you may need to see Dr. Zikria outside of your routine visits. Plan on scheduling an appointment at the office of Gul A. Zikria, MD, if you:

  • Want to get pregnant
  • Think you might be pregnant
  • Need to start or change birth control
  • Have pelvic pain or bladder leakage
  • Are experiencing menopausal symptoms, including hot flashes or vaginal dryness

It’s also important to see Dr. Zikria if you start noticing that your menstrual periods are becoming irregular, or that your periods are associated with unbearable cramps. These could be warning signs of endometriosis, uterine fibroids, or other women’s reproductive health conditions. He can perform an ultrasound right in the office if needed and can get you started on treatment.

How do I prepare for a gynecology appointment?

Planning is important when it comes to your gynecology appointment or well-woman exam at the office of Gul A. Zikria, MD. For instance, if you’re due for a Pap smear, try not to schedule your visit during your period, since it could impact your test results. You can also prepare for a gynecology visit by:

  • Writing down all medications and supplements, including dosages
  • Knowing the first day of your most recent menstrual period
  • Transferring over your records from your previous gynecologist
  • Making a list of all questions or concerns

Taking these few extra steps can ensure that you get the most out of your visit with Dr. Zikria, so you leave your appointment with all of the information you need.
