General gynecology

Regular gynecologic care is key to every woman's ongoing health. Annual gynecologic exams give you a chance to voice concerns and allow your doctor to catch small problems before they become larger issues. An annual gynecologic exam normally includes:

  • A review of your personal health history
  • A check of your height and weight
  • A breast exam
  • An abdominal exam
  • A pelvic exam
  • A Pap test
  • A discussion about birth control options 

Annual gynecologic exams are normally covered by insurance.

Gynecologic issue visits

Between your annual appointments, you might have a gynecologic problem that needs attention. Whether it is a urinary tract infection, sexually transmitted infection, or an unusual or painful period, or another ache or pain, the doctors at UVA Obstetrics & Gynecology are here to diagnose your issue and determine the best course of treatment for it.

We make every effort to accommodate sick patients with same-day or next-day appointments. If you need to be seen quickly, please call our office to schedule your appointment and mention that need when you call.
