Gynecology focuses on women’s reproductive and sexual health. Cookeville Medical Clinic RHC offers a broad range of gynecology services, including:
An annual well-woman exam is a highly effective way of ensuring you stay as healthy as possible. Regular checkups enable your provider to identify any gynecological problems at the earliest stages before they present a serious risk to your health.
Cookeville Medical Clinic RHC diagnoses and treats most gynecology conditions. Some of the problems the team sees most often include:
When girls first start menstruating during puberty and women enter perimenopause, it’s common to have irregular periods. Otherwise, you should have your period regularly every 24-38 days.
Periods that are irregular or last longer than eight days and heavy bleeding that soaks through a tampon or pad in under an hour could be signs of a gynecological condition. Painful periods (dysmenorrhea) are also a common problem.
Some STDs, like chlamydia, gonorrhea, and human papillomavirus (HPV, which causes genital warts), are so widespread that they affect large numbers of women. Treatments for these conditions are often highly effective, preventing problems like cervical cancer, pregnancy complications, infertility, and pelvic inflammatory disease.
Yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis are common, causing itching, irritation, and unpleasant discharges. Treatment is straightforward and effective.
Some of the many diseases that affect the female reproductive system (uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes) include:
These conditions can cause pelvic pain, menstrual problems, and infertility.
The treatment your provider recommends for a gynecology condition varies according to the type of disorder, how badly it’s affecting you, and factors like your age and other health problems. Wanting to preserve your fertility is often a key consideration too.
Common gynecology treatments include antibiotics for bacterial infections, such as certain STDs and bacterial vaginosis, and anti-fungal treatments for yeast infections. You might benefit from hormone replacement therapy (HRT) if you’re experiencing painful, irregular, or heavy periods or have menopause symptoms like hot flashes and night sweats.
