LA’s Leading Gynecologists

Speaking openly with your physician about women’s health issues is not always a comfortable experience. Women may not want to discuss their sexual and reproductive health concerns with their general physician, as often times they are rushed or dismissed. Visiting Los Angeles OB-GYN at Women Center L.A. can help women feel heard and taken care of.

Women Center L.A. has a team of highly-trained specialists who focus on providing care in the fields of obstetrics and gynecology. Our LA gynecologist and obstetrician teams offer exceptional care as they guide patients through treatments for a variety of conditions.

What is an OB-GYN?

  • An obstetrician is a doctor who specializes in reproduction and focuses on treating women and babies during the entire process of pregnancy, including pre-conception.
  • A gynecologist focuses on treating conditions related to a woman’s reproductive system.
  • An OB-GYN is a combination of both an obstetrician and a gynecologist.

What Conditions Does a Gynecologist Treat?

It is recommended that girls have their first gynecological visit when they hit puberty. This visit usually involves checking for any abnormalities, and ensuring they are well-informed about their bodies. Typical conditions that a gynecologist treats include but are not limited to:

You should schedule checkups with your Los Angeles gynecologist annually from the ages of 21 – 29 (or earlier if you were sexually active before that age). From age 30 and up, you can typically schedule an appointment every other year. Depending on you and your family’s medical history, you will need to schedule a pap smear every two or three years.

What Certifications Should Your OB-GYN Have?

Becoming an LA OB-GYN takes years of rigorous studies and practical experience. Before selecting an OB-GYN, you should make sure that they have the appropriate qualifications. This includes:

  • Being a graduate of medical school
  • Completing a residency in obstetrics and gynecology
  • Being board-certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology
  • Being a member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (optional)

It is important to choose an experienced, highly qualified OB-GYN so that you remain comfortable during procedures and asking any questions throughout your care. Our OB-GYN team at Women Center L.A. prides itself on providing top health to women in the Los Angeles area.

What Should I Expect at My First Appointment?

During the initial appointment, it is natural to feel a little nervous. At first, the doctor will do blood and/or urine tests, take your blood pressure, and weigh you. They will also ask you questions about your general health, your family’s medical history, and any concerns that you currently have. After that, they will do a physical assessment, which will include an examination of your vagina, cervix, and breasts.

Frequently Asked Questions About OB-GYNS

What is the Difference between an OB-GYN and GYN?

A gynecologist is a doctor who is a specialist in women’s reproductive health. Diagnosing and treating problems related to the vagina, uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, and breasts, they deal with a wide range of issues, including menstruation, fertility problems, hormone disorders, and sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

An obstetrician is a doctor who specializes in all aspects of pregnancy, including pre- and post-pregnancy care to ensure you have a healthy pregnancy and baby. Obstetricians deliver babies and are skilled in the management of complex pregnancies and births. They may also be involved with fertility treatments.

Why Should I Visit an OB-GYN

At Laser90210 in LA, Obstetrics/Gynecology (OB-GYN) is a dual specialty of our doctors who deal with some of the most important health issues in a woman’s life, from her first period, through childbirth and beyond menopause.

Do I Need a Referral to see an OB-GYN?

Many health insurance providers require you to have a referral from a primary care physician (PCP) to see a specialist. However, there are some exceptions to this, and women can schedule an appointment for routine care, such as Pap smears and mammograms, with an OB-GYN.

When Should I see an OB-GYN in Los Angeles?

We recommend check-ups with your Los Angeles OB-GYN every year from the ages of 21-29—or earlier if sexually active. A pap smear is generally needed every two to three years.

You should schedule an appointment with an obstetrician between weeks 6 to 12 of your pregnancy. However, you can visit before for pre-pregnancy planning.
