Identifying Common Gynecologic Conditions at Dignity Health Central Coast
Areas of a woman’s reproductive system affected by gynecologic conditions include the vulva, vagina, cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. Gynecologic conditions also involve sexually transmitted infections (STI), urinary tract infections (UTI), pelvic pain, and managing menopause symptoms.
The signs and symptoms of each gynecologic condition vary depending on the part of the reproductive system affected.
Common gynecologic problems and their symptoms include:
- Vaginitis — vaginal discharge, itching, and burning
- Uterine fibroids — heavy menstrual periods
- Endometriosis — pelvic pain and cramping, lower back and stomach pain during menstruation, and excessive bleeding during menstruation
- Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) — irregular menstrual periods, excess body or facial hair, acne, and weight gain
Treating Gynecologic Conditions
Our experienced gynecologists at Dignity Health Central Coast approach treatment of gynecologic conditions based on the specific condition and possible causes.
In the case of an infection, such as an sexually transmitted infection (STI) or urinary tract infection (UTI), treatment typically consists of an antibiotic. Ovarian cyst treatment may involve a “watch and wait” approach or minimally invasive surgery to remove the cyst. Ask your doctor if one of our gynecologic procedures is right for you.
