What Does an OBGYN Do?

An OBGYN provides an important service for women who are looking to receive wellness exams. However, many younger women may not know what an OBGYN does or the value that they can bring. Thankfully, our providers are here to help you understand the importance of an OBGYN and all that they do.

What Does an OBGYN Do?

An OBGYN has an overall study in obstetrics and gynecology. Their sole purpose is to be able to aid women with a wide range of services, such as pap smears, ultrasounds, and much more. It is highly recommended that women see their OBGYN once a year to check up on their health and to catch any problems before they become something worse.

Understanding OBGYN Procedures

OBGYNs are also able to provide surgical procedures that can help women during their pregnancy and their ability to give birth. Some of these include:

  • C-sections
  • Helping with childbirth
  • Receiving a hysterectomy
  • Removing painful ovarian cysts

As mentioned earlier, OBGYNs can also provide various wellness services that women can greatly benefit from. Some of these include:

  • Pap smears. These are wellness tests to determine whether or not a woman has cervical cancer or other types of illnesses.
  • STI tests. This is crucial in making sure that you have not contracted a sexually transmitted disease.
  • UTI treatments. An OBGYN can help treat urinary tract infections which can become larger problems if you do not treat them immediately.

These are but a few examples of what an OBGYN can provide for you.
