Women’s health encompasses a wide range of conditions. Typically, women seek out providers specializing in gynecology (OB/GYN) for the evaluation and treatment of female-specific concerns. Having a gynecologist whom you can trust and contact at any time is key to a healthy doctor-patient relationship. Fortunately, with the increased adoption of telehealth, gynecologists are now offering their services online.
Tele-gynecology allows women to avoid the hassles of having to make an appointment, sit in a waiting room, and deal with the receptionists and assistants. While a physical examination may be necessary to evaluate some complaints, many conditions can be managed via telemedicine.
Maybe you just finished a course of antibiotics. Perhaps you have a new partner. Maybe you’re just one of the millions of women who are more prone to yeast infections than others. Either way, things are out of balance, and it’s a problem. If you’re experiencing vaginal itching, discomfort, and atypical discharge, you could have a yeast infection. Most women have them from time to time, and they are usually very treatable.
