Women’s Health Q&A

What happens during a women’s health visit?

Your women’s health check begins like your typical annual check-up. A member of our team will check your height, weight, and blood pressure.

The doctor will discuss your overall health and well-being with you. This is a great opportunity to ask questions and raise any concerns you might have about your health. You may have been asked to have blood work done in advance of your appointment. If so, you will discuss the results.

Women’s health visits are different than a general exam because they include gynecological checks. The doctor will check your breasts and perform a pelvic exam to feel for abnormalities of your uterus and ovaries. Based on your age, family history, and exam, the doctor will order a mammogram, if indicated.

If you are due for screening for cervical cancer, the doctor will perform a Pap smear. Based on your medical history and age, we will make recommendations regarding how frequently it is necessary for you to have a Pap smear.

How often should I have an STD screening?

Screening for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) is a critical part of preventive health care. Based on your age, sexual history, and current behaviors, our doctors will test for STDs and discuss how often this screening is indicated.

Even with safe sexual practices, there is a risk of contracting STDs, and testing is critical to protecting yourself and others. Many STDs do not cause symptoms in their early stages, so regular screening is the best way to catch an infection early and get treatment.

Why are women’s health screenings important?

Many women’s health issues like abnormal cells, cervical cancer, and STDs like HPV do not cause noticeable symptoms in their early and more easily treated stages. Even if you feel healthy and do not have any symptoms, it is possible to have a condition that requires close monitoring or treatment. Health screenings can diagnose abnormalities and start treatment before you have symptoms of the disease.
