It’s important for women to begin seeing a gynecologist in their teens. Menstruation is just the first of many changes your body will go through. Your gynecologist helps you understand which changes are normal and which need treatment.
Sometimes you simply need an annual exam to help prevent problems or catch them early. And sometimes you need more specialized care, like medicine or surgery. Whether you’re looking for endometriosis treatment, menopause management or anything in between, you’ll find it at PeaceHealth.
Your care team may change through each decade of life. Team members include specialists in pregnancy (obstetrics), pelvic floor disorders and surgeons.

Loss of bladder or bowel control are called accidental urinary incontinence and fecal incontinence. Urine or stool may suddenly leak. You may also need to visit the toilet urgently or more often.

Gynecologic infections may be caused by bacteria, fungus or viruses. They include yeast infections, bacterial vaginosis, urinary tract infections and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) like chlamydia and gonorrhea.
Pelvic problems can include chronic pelvic pain (pain that lasts more than six months) and pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), which can lead to infertility. We also treat pelvic organ prolapse, often caused by a weak pelvic floor.
