About a Women’s Health Provider
Many women might find themselves feeling nervous about scheduling an appointment with a gynecologist.

A gynecologist helps ensure you are healthy.
Our Arizona Gynecology Services
We offer a variety of women’s healthcare services here at AZGYN to ensure that your health is taken care of. Here are some of our general gynecology and women’s health services:
Well-woman care involves an examination of your general and sexual history, a primary checkup, possible consultation for contraception, reviewing medications, and more. This is to get a better idea of your health and how you can take care of it. It’s similar to a primary checkup, but it usually involves more in-depth examinations.
Primary Care for Women
We also offer primary care for women, which are general services to stay up to date on your health.
Our team at AZGYN can provide you with counseling on contraception as well as help finding the best option that suits you and your lifestyle.
Menopause is an entirely new phase of life for women. With this new phase of life often comes questions, concerns, and wondering — all of which our menopause specialists can help you through.
If you are experiencing abnormal bleeding, whether on or off your period, it should be checked out immediately to identify a cause and treat it properly. Abnormal bleeding is often caused by other internal issues in the cervix or uterus.
Urinary incontinence, or unintentional urinating when you laugh or cough, for example, can be caused by a few different things. It’s best to get it checked out to see how you can best take care of it and treat it.
Pelvic pain is a problem for many women, especially as they age. If you struggle with pelvic pain, there may be an underlying cause. These causes can include musculoskeletal issues or reproductive tract issues. Regardless of what the cause is, our experienced gynecologists can help you get to the bottom of the problem and start relieving your pain.
Hormone replacement is a great method to help battle symptoms of menopause by giving your body the hormones it needs to function properly. For example, the creation of estrogen in the body heavily decreases as menopause occurs. Because of this, hormone replacement with estrogen can help fight symptoms of menopause in many women.
We offer general adolescent health services as well.
Ovarian cysts are pockets that fill with fluid that form in or on a woman’s ovary. When left untreated, they can often cause health complications such as pain, weight gain, irregular periods, and more. Ovarian cysts are also common in those who have PCOS.
Uterine fibroids are abnormal growths of the uterus. Though they aren’t cancerous, they can cause painful, long periods, and other issues. They often appear during a woman’s child-birthing years. If you notice abnormal pain during periods or during intercourse, you should talk to a professional to have it examined.
Endometriosis is a painful, chronic illness where the tissue that normally is lining the inside of the uterus is on the outside. Anyone with endometriosis should have regular visits to a gynecologist in order to develop treatment strategies.
Prolapse can happen when the muscles inside the vagina are stretched or weakened over time. These muscles can be retrained or strengthened again over time, especially with the help of surgery.
Reproductive Tract Anomalies
Reproductive tract anomalies include structural issues as well as abnormal growths. Reproductive surgery can help to identify and remove anomalies in the reproductive tract that are causing issues. While sometimes these anomalies might not cause any symptoms, it’s best to have them removed before they do.
While vaginal discharge is normal, sometimes it can signal that there is something wrong with the pH or internal health of a woman, like when there is a yeast infection.
Pelvic infections can be caused by a variety of bacteria or infections. Common causes are often chlamydia or gonorrhea, both infections which enter through your reproductive organs. When left untreated, these diseases can worsen to pelvic infections and other issues.
Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs)
Sexually transmitted diseases are diseases spread through sexual intercourse. Whether you want to be proactive by being tested or need treatment for an established STD, our experienced and compassionate gynecologists can help.
Cosmetic concerns involve reconstruction and repair that can help improve the appearance, function, and sometimes even sensitivity of the vagina.
Decreased libido can occur at any time. But when it doesn’t seem to be going away, there might be a problem. Don’t wait to talk to one of our trusted gynecologists for advice.
Painful sexual intercourse can often be the sign of underlying problems such as uterine fibroids, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, and more.
Cervical dysplasia refers to abnormal, often precancerous, cells growing on the cervix. Both prescription medication and surgery can help treat dysplasia. Our women’s health providers will know which option is best for your condition.
Masses can be both cancerous and non-cancerous. Polyps, for example, are often non-cancerous. Regardless, seeing a gynecologist will help to stay proactive on any masses that may be identified.
Laparoscopic Abdominal Cerclage
Laparoscopic abdominal cerclage is a highly effective, well-tolerated surgical treatment of patients with refractory cervical insufficiency or anatomic limitations to vaginal cerclage.
Vaccinations are another part of women’s health services that we offer to help keep our patients as healthy as possible.
Breast Masses and Pain
Our team can also examine breast masses or pain that you may be experiencing, as these can often be precursors to breast cancer.
