1. Breast Examination

Breast cancer is a leading concern when it comes to health ailments faced by women. There is no fixed cause for it and any woman can be affected by it. This is the reason why women are advised to regularly check for presence of lumps in their breasts.  Every woman should conduct self-examination of breasts once a month, and even opt for a mammogram frequently. This helps diagnose the cancer, if it is present, at an early stage, and treat it accordingly. Consulting a gynecologist regarding this helps as well.

2. Preventive Care

Although the field of specialization of a gynecologist is female reproductive organ, it is not restricted to it because female reproductive organs affect other parts of the body as well. Thus, a gynecologist can be a primary healthcare provider for a woman. A gynecologist can also help in counseling for the mental health of a patient and provide support during the emotional turmoil during pregnancy or menstruation. They also suggest diet and lifestyle changes to women to help them look after their health.

 3. Menstruation Problems

If any woman has menstruation problems i.e. it is inconsistent, heavy, causing health problems, presence of discomforting system, bleeding between periods, etc., they are advised to visit a gynecologist. A gynecologist can diagnose the symptoms and the root cause of the problem to help provide a treatment for the same.

 4.  Reproductive and Sexual Health

If a woman is facing any problem regarding her sexual or reproductive health, then she should consult a gynecologist at the earliest. This can help manage infertility, sexually transmitted infections, birth control, pain during sex or any other problem. A gynecologist can help manage all of these problems to ensure that a woman is in her best health when indulging in sexual intercourse.

5. Vaccinations

Vaccinations are of great importance to a woman for her sexual health. If she is not properly vaccinated, then she could face a lot of problems later in her life. One such vaccine is HPV vaccine. HPV stands for Human Papillomavirus which is transmitted through sexual contact. HPV vaccine helps prevent women from various HPV infections.

According to research, more than 50% of women and men are affected at HPV at some time in their life. Therefore, it is essential to prevent it from affecting the body.


Gynecologists are the best doctors for women when it comes to looking after their sexual as well as overall health. Any changes or problems in urinary pattern, intercourse, menstrual blood, menstrual cycle etc., should be immediately reported to a gynecologist. This is an advice that is suggested by the best gynecologists in Delhi and other metro cities in India, so that the right course of treatment can be undertaken.
