What role does gynecologic care play in overall health and wellness?

Gynecology focuses on addressing a woman’s reproductive health. Your gynecologist also offers guidance in areas of general health that affect women at high rates, including heart disease, hypertension, Type 2 diabetes, and depression.

What kinds of issues are addressed through gynecologic care?

Some of the concerns that bring women in for gynecologic care include:

Preventive and routine care

Women need routine pelvic exams, PAP smear testing, and contraception guidance as they move through the phases of life. Education on matters of sexual health is also a standard part of gynecologic care. 


This condition is characterized by endometrial tissue located outside of the uterus. This abnormal location causes significant inflammation and pain as it thickens and sheds within the pelvic region. 


This condition develops when a bacterial, fungal, or parasitic infection causes inflammation within the vagina. Pain, abnormal discharge, and itching bring women in for diagnostic and treatment services. 

Pelvic pain

It isn’t always easy to determine the cause of pelvic pain, which can range in severity from mild to severe. Uterine fibroids, ectopic pregnancy, polycystic ovary syndrome, and infection are just some of the potential sources of pelvic pain.  

The Primrose Women’s Health team also focuses on sexually transmitted disease prevention, screening, and treatment within their gynecologic care. 

When do girls and young women need to begin coming in for gynecologic care?

Many parents bring their daughters in for gynecologic care during their early teen years. These visits usually don’t include a pelvic exam unless a teen is sexually active or experiencing symptoms. (Pelvic exams or PAP smear tests for cervical cancer usually occur at the age of 21.) 

Instead, the visits are a time of educating your teen on how to care for their women’s health needs while building trust with them. Birth control and STD prevention are also strong areas of focus. 

Carrie meets with patients one-on-one to explore their needs and explains which services are right for them at the time of their visit. 

Carrie’s unrushed, compassionate, and personable nature is one reason why so many rely on her for their women’s health care. She takes the time to listen and understand your unique set of needs before thoroughly explaining your options and addressing your questions and concerns.
