A gynecologist is a doctor who focuses on the female reproductive system, which includes your vagina, vulva, Fallopian tubes, cervix, uterus, breasts, and ovaries. A gynecologist like Dr. Novac attends to your fertility, menstrual cycle, pregnancy, menopause, and any concerns or problems may arise.
At ACE OBGYN, Dr. Novac has 15 years of experience treating a wide range of gynecological issues, such as:
The team provides comprehensive testing and evaluations to get to the root cause of your health concerns. In addition, you have access to expert guidance on birth control options, hormone replacement therapy, confidential sexually transmitted disease testing, and minimally invasive procedures.
In general, you should see Dr. Novac once a year for your well-woman exam. He conducts a thorough pelvic exam and compares any changes he sees with baseline tests you’ve had in the past. If there are any abnormalities or signs of illness, it’s best to catch them early. Regular pelvic exams help you keep a close watch on changes.
In addition to your annual pelvic exam, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends that you have a Pap smear every three to five years depending on your age. A Pap smear is a simple, in-office test that Dr. Novac uses to screen for cervical cancer.
Your exam starts by making sure you are completely at ease and comfortable. In your private room, a nurse helps you get comfortable and recline on a table. She measures your blood pressure and heart rate and asks you about any problems you’re experiencing.
Dr. Novac steps in to conduct the exam. It begins with a breast check to feel for lumps or nodules. He’ll guide you as you slide your feet in stirrups for your close look at your vagina, vulva, cervix, ovaries, and Fallopian tubes. If you’re due for a Pap smear, he’ll gather a cell sample from your cervix to send to the lab. The whole process takes less than 15 minutes.
