Gynecologist Q & A

Rogers Medical Ltd.

What is gynecology?

Gynecology is an area of medicine that focuses on women’s health, especially when it comes to reproductive health. While an OB/GYN cares for women during the stages of pregnancy and childbirth, a gynecology-trained physician treats women who aren’t pregnant. Some physicians may also offer OB/GYN services, however, as the two fields of medicine focus on reproductive care.

As a board-certified family physician, Dr. Rogers is gynecology-trained, giving her the expertise needed to offer specialized care for women. She can also perform other women’s health services.

What services are considered gynecology services?

Gynecology can include a wide range of services, which may include:

  • Routine Pap smears
  • Female cancer screenings
  • STD screenings and treatment
  • Reproductive ultrasound
  • Diagnosis and treatment of menstruation-related problems
  • Abnormal vaginal bleeding
  • Vaginal infections
  • Ovarian cyst
  • Premenopausal symptoms
  • Premenstrual dysphoric disorder
  • Menopause
  • Premenstrual syndrome
  • Sexual dysfunction

Dr. Rogers can also provide various contraceptive methods, including intrauterine devices, or IUDs. An IUD is a small device that’s implanted in your uterus and delivers hormones to your body, similar to oral contraceptives. Your IUD options include:

  • Nexplanon®
  • Kyleena®  
  • Mirena®  
  • Skyla®
  • LARC (long-acting reversible contraception)

At Rogers Medical, Dr. Rogers tailors gynecology services to meet your needs. As a physician who uses both conventional and holistic methods of care, Dr. Rogers supports you and acts as a partner in your health.

Gynecology services can complement the advice or treatment from your primary care physician too.

What are the benefits of having a physician who is gynecology-trained?

Developing a relationship with a physician who is gynecology-trained is good for any woman, no matter her age or stage in life. In addition to having your regular pelvic exam, there are other reasons to see Dr. Rogers and utilize her knowledge and expertise.

She has more specialized education in treating problems related to the female reproductive system than your primary care doctor.

Dr. Rogers can also identify problems early enough, so they don’t cause future issues. You can be confident that she has the most up-to-date information about contraceptive options, hormone replacement therapy, and STD treatments.

For women who have an abnormal Pap test or a history of hormonal imbalances, having a physician who is gynecology-trained is also helpful. By monitoring your health with yearly visits, Dr. Rogers can ensure you’re not at risk for female-specific cancers or other reproductive organ problems.

Since Dr. Rogers views each patient as a unique person with valid needs, you can be confident you’ll resolve your female health concerns with a supportive and understanding physician.
