What is a Gynecologist?

A gynecologist is a doctor with advanced training to prevent, diagnose, and treat conditions that affect women and their reproductive organs. The female reproductive system is made up of the:

  • Cervix
  • External genitals, including the labia, clitoris, and Bartholin’s glands
  • Fallopian tubes
  • Ovaries
  • Uterus, or womb
  • Vagina

When to See Your Gynecologist

Visit your gynecologist or primary care provider once a year or according to a schedule you create with your doctor. Contact your doctor if you experience:

  • Abnormal bleeding between periods or after sex
  • Burning, itching, redness, or swelling
  • Changes in vaginal discharge, such as an unusual color or smell
  • Lumps or sores of the genitals
  • Pain during sex
  • Pressure or pain in your pelvic area that feels different than menstrual cramps
  • Trouble urinating or needing to urinate often
