Women's Health Q&A

What is women’s health?

Women’s health, also called gynecology, is the branch of medicine dedicated to preserving women’s sexual and reproductive health. The specialty also covers your breast health, certain aspects of your hormonal health, and the function of your urinary system.


Your provider at Greenwood Village Family Medicine can teach you how your sexual and reproductive systems function and how their health contributes to your overall health. They can diagnose and treat conditions such as:


  • Urinary tract infections
  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Menopause symptoms
  • Reproductive cancers
  • Breast lumps and cancer

During your visits, you may raise questions and concerns about sex and sexuality, menstruation, menopause, and other distinctive aspects of women’s health. 

Which women’s health services help me stay healthy?

Greenwood Village Family Medicine offers comprehensive gynecological care for girls and women starting around mid-adolescence. Your provider ensures you stay on track with essential women’s health services like:

Pap smears

A Pap smear happens once every few years at your gynecological examinations after you turn 21. It’s a screening test for abnormal cell changes on your cervix. 


Your provider further examines the results of an abnormal Pap smear with another test called a colposcopy. They use a magnifying instrument to get a closer look at the cells of your cervix, vulva, and vagina. 

Birth control management

Various forms of birth control prevent pregnancy, and Greenwood Village Family Medicine helps you consider all of your options. They offer birth control-related services like intrauterine device (IUD) insertion and removal procedures. 

How often should I schedule a women’s health appointment?

Greenwood Village Family Medicine encourages you to visit your provider for gynecology at least once a year. This annual visit serves a preventive purpose and helps you stay on track with any additional services you might need, like cancer screenings, STD tests, and vaccine updates. 

You may also schedule a gynecologic visit at Greenwood Village Family Medicine if you develop symptoms involving your sexual and reproductive system or breasts, including breast lumps, abnormal bleeding, pelvic pain, or signs of a hormone imbalance.
