Patient education is a priority for Women’s Health Texas
At Women’s Health Texas, our Austin OBGYNs seek not only to care for you, but also to connect you with resources you need to be informed and proactive about your health. In addition, our website includes OBGYN patient education resources that address your gynecological, obstetrical and whole health needs.
Preparing for your OBGYN visit
If you are a new patient, please take time to fill out the patient health history and registration forms through our online portal, so our Austin OBGYNs have all of the information needed to prepare for your visit to our offices in Austin, Bastrop, Cedar Park or Round Rock. If you can’t fill this out before your appointment, please arrive 15 minutes early to complete the forms in our office.
Is this your first well-woman visit with Women’s Health Texas? You likely have questions. We understand and will provide support and assistance to answer all of your questions and alleviate your concerns.

The challenges of getting pregnant
Women’s Health Texas supports your goal to achieve a pregnancy. Couples who are having trouble getting pregnant want to know the causes of infertility.

Comprehensive hereditary cancer assessment
For women with family histories of breast, ovarian, and colon cancer, we offer comprehensive cancer assessment testing. We encourage you to discuss this with your Austin OBGYN for more information and details on what the assessment covers.
Many types of insurance will not cover this testing without proof of medical necessity. If you are interested in hereditary cancer testing, contact your insurance company for benefit coverage information.
Maneuvering through menopause
You’ve likely heard or read about hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and can feel confused about whether or not to try it. Is HRT helpful? Is HRT harmful? A thorough discussion with your Austin OBGYN is necessary to make that decision.
Read more about HRT and other aspects of menopause, so you understand the process before, during and after the transition into menopause.
We will support you in every way we can
Our OBGYNs in Austin, Bastrop, Cedar Park and Round Rock encourage you to embrace good choices that promote your overall health and are happy to provide patient education. Please contact us if you have questions or need information to optimize your health.
