Yes: In general yes, But may vary by the individual gynecologist, the presenting condition and ability of the gynecologist to provide effective overall care for that condition.

Maybe, but may refer: ... you to clinical psychologist or other mental health clinician - hopefully someone w/training & expertise in treatment of anxiety problems/disorders. To learn to manage anxiety, it's vital 2understand what it is, how it ticks & what specific things can help if it starts interfering with (a) your ability 2 function & (b) your relationships.
