Gynecology Q&A

What is gynecology?

Gynecology is the branch of medicine centered around caring for women and the diagnosis, treatment, and care that relates to the female reproductive system and other health conditions and concerns of women.

The female reproductive system includes the uterus, vagina, fallopian tubes, and breasts. With gynecology, a number of customized screenings, tests, procedures, and other services might be involved depending on the individual.

 Dr. Patel provides Pap smears when necessary and several other important preventive care methods that can help identify any potential gynecological problems or any early signs of cancer, precancer, or abnormalities.

What are some of the most common gynecological issues?

Numerous gynecological problems can affect women at different phases of life.


Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) involves hormonal imbalance, irregular menstruation, and elevated levels of male hormones. In some cases, the ovaries can form small buildups of fluid, which often impairs fertility and makes the ovaries unable to release eggs properly.


Uterine fibroids are noncancerous growths that develop in the uterus and vary in severity, amount, and size.


A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection of any area of the urinary system that’s usually treated with antibiotics. The urinary system includes the ureters, bladder, urethra, and kidneys. Most UTIs occur in the bladder and urethra.


Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), such as gonorrhea and chlamydia, are contracted through sexual activity and usually treated with antibiotics.
