Gynecological Services

Women of every age and every stage of their life need expert gynecologic services. Dr. Amaya is a bilingual central Phoenix OB/GYN that can play an important role in your ongoing gynecological health. Whether you’re experiencing irregular periods or facing challenges as you enter into menopause, Dr. Amaya can diagnose and treat a range of gynecological conditions. This is how she helps.

Menstruation challenges

If you’re missing your period often or experiencing irregular cycles, there could be several underlying causes.
In general, you should visit an OB/GYN if your period happens more often than every 24 days, less often than every 38 days, or is generally irregular. Furthermore, if you have periods that last more than eight days or experience heavy bleeding that requires a new tampon or pad every two hours, you should be seen.

Dr. Amaya has extensive experience evaluating the causes of menstrual challenges. She’ll help diagnose the cause of your issues and suggest treatments that could help.

Vaginal Conditions

Unusual vaginal symptoms aren’t always tied to infections. In some cases, they can be the result of things in everyday life.

Perhaps it’s a reaction to condoms or a soap you have been using. Rashes, genital lesions, and irregular discharge can be the result of many different things. Dr. Amaya can help you narrow down the various causes to find relief and treat the issue.

Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs)

Many sexually transmitted diseases and infections don’t come with symptoms, making them difficult to catch without exams. For this reason, it’s important to see a gynecologist in Phoenix for routine screenings.

If you’re diagnosed with sexually transmitted diseases and infections, Dr. Amaya will provide you with information on treatment options. This may be in the form of medication or, in some cases, a medical procedure. Regardless, you’ll have the education you need to make an informed decision. After that, she’ll provide counseling for prevention and ongoing care.

Breast Issues

Breast exams are an important part of your gynecological health.

While you should perform monthly self-examinations in the comfort of your home, Dr. Amaya can help determine if there is anything of concern. If you feel a lump or experience nipple discharge, it’s important to make an appointment right away.

In certain cases, Dr. Amaya may suggest a mammogram (X-rays of the breasts). The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommends screening mammography starting at age 40, and maybe sooner if there is a family history of breast cancer.


Your menstrual cycle will eventually come to an end. This natural biological process is known as menopause. Unfortunately, this phase can come with unpleasant symptoms, such as hot flashes, mood changes, and other symptoms.

If these issues begin to have a significant impact on your sleep patterns and health, Dr. Amaya can help. Through simple lifestyle adjustments and, in some cases, hormone therapy, she can advise you on ways to find relief.
