Stefanie McCain MD is a Gynecology practice in Abilene, TX
with healthcare providers who have special training and skill in promoting women's wellness, especially their sexual and reproductive health.
Gynecologists at Stefanie McCain MD perform
preventative, diagnostic and treatment procedures on the female reproductive system. Gynecology is
the medical care and maintenance of women's sex and reproductive systems throughout their natural life cycle, often integrated with general healthcare. Significant diseases and conditions treated at
Gynecology practices include dysfunctions of both reproductive and general health - as they are inextricably linked. These dysfunctions commonly include: menstrual issues, acne, hormone imbalances (hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, osteoporosis, diabetes, depression, and personality disorders), sexual dysfunctions, sexually transmitted diseases, urinary tract infections, endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome, ovarian cysts, and cancers of the reproductive tract and breasts. Gynecologists also nurture women through natural physiological and biochemical life stages: from managing adolescence, to becoming sexually active, to becoming pregnant, to pregnancy care, to postpartum care, to perimenopause, to menopause, and healthy aging promotion. These female specialists also help women prevent disease through lifestyle modifications, and enable healing from domestic violence and sexual assault. Because gynecologists treat such a wide array of integrative issues, they often serve as women's primary health care providers.
Medical tests, procedures and therapies provided by Gynecology
practices include medical and psychiatric history analysis, general wellness check-ups (including measuring vital signs and crafting nutrition plans), age appropriate breast and pelvic exams, preventative pap smears, contraception prescriptions, mammography, colonoscopy, blood pressure monitoring, immunizations, breast lump removal, and hysterectomies.
