Gynecology


Alert: Information for CHA patients and visitors regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

Gynecology Care for All Stages of Life

When getting gynecology services, you need people who truly understand your needs. That's where we excel. As a CHA patient, you’ll find experts in routine gynecology, gynecological surgery and teen health. This lets us meet the needs of women and transgender people at all of life’s stages – from adolescence to adulthood, through menopause and beyond.

To provide the safest care to patients during these unprecedented times, we  are temporarily relocating OB/GYN services from the CHA East Cambridge Care Center to the Women's Health Center at CHA Cambridge Hospital (3rd floor, Healy Building). Clinic hours are 8:00 a.m. -- 5:00 p.m. We are also relocating visits at CHA Women's Health Center at Somerville Hospital to either Cambridge or Revere. Please call 617-665-2800 to confirm upcoming appointments. Thank you for your patience as we make these adjustments.

Adolescent Gynecology

Our Adolescent Gynecologists understand the younger population, providing expert services in a setting which is sensitive to adolescent needs. Available at several CHA sites, including the Cambridge Teen Health Center, the Somerville Teen Connection and Everett Teen Health Center.

Menopause Issues

As we grow older, our bodies change, often noticeably. You may be experiencing symptoms like hot flashes, heavy bleeding or nothing at all. Menopause actually includes three stages: perimenopause (early symptoms), menopause and post-menopause (when menopause transition has ended).

Our doctors will help you understand your options, including the many therapies available for you and your needs. Your care team will also help you manage the unique stress that can come during this transition. Whatever you are experiencing, your CHA provider is here for you.
