If you are a woman, young or old, at some point in your life, you will probably want or need to see an Obstetrics and Gynecology physician, often referred to as an Ob/Gyn. Obstetricians care for women and their baby during pregnancy, childbirth, and provide postpartum care to both mom and baby after delivery. Gynecologists specialize in women's reproductive health including menstruation, menopause, hormonal changes, and more. All ARC Ob/Gyn physicians are medically trained in both areas and can care for women through all the stages of reproductive life. They see women of all ages for evaluation and treatment for a wide variety of women’s health issues. ARC has provided this care to women in Central Texas since 1982.
Obstetricians guide you through the nine-month journey of pregnancy, caring for you through the labor and delivery of your baby, and see you afterwards to ensure you and baby are happy and healthy. Each pregnancy, whether it is your first one or for a second or third child, is as unique as the bond between each mother and child. An Ob/Gyn cares for your health and your baby’s health throughout pregnancy and can address any issues that might arise, including high-risk pregnancy or delivery.
Obstetricians also care for women when they experience a miscarriage, which occurs with 15% of pregnancies1. Miscarriages are not rare. Misconceptions about them are common, and those mistaken beliefs can make the experience even more painful for those who experience one. Miscarriages are most often caused by genetic or medical problems and the majority of them are unavoidable. An obstetrician can care for you throughout the experience and address any questions, doubts or fears you might have.
A gynecologist focuses on all your reproductive health issues that do not fall under the expertise of an obstetrician, including annual gynecological exams, menopause treatment and management, menstrual irregularities and dysfunction, birth control and contraceptive counseling, hormonal changes, osteoporosis, and STD screening and treatment, to name a few.
If you do not need obstetric care, a gynecology-only (Gyn-only) practice may be the right option for you. In a gyn-only practice, doctors focus on gynecology issues like those mentioned above, including addressing the transition of menopause and other later-life health challenges. ARC offers Gyn-only practices to make it easy for women to get the care they need when they need it.
The physicians at Austin Regional Clinic are Ob/Gyn physicians who can address all of your obstetrics and gynecological needs from pregnancy and childbirth to menopause, and for other health issues such as cancer screening and urinary tract infections. We provide the most up-to-date diagnostic and treatment options available.
