Why do I need well-woman exams?

You need well-woman exams to stay healthy. Well-woman exams are thorough evaluations of your reproductive health. Your reproductive system affects your physical and psychological well-being. It’s also the source of many health issues.

Well-woman exams screen for common health issues and identify the cause of unwanted symptoms like pelvic pain, abnormal bleeding, and irregular periods.

Your well-woman exam also gives you an opportunity to talk to an expert about your personal health concerns, needs, and goals. 

When do I need well-woman exams?

You should have a well-woman exam every year. If it’s been more than a year since your wellness visit with your gynecologist, it’s time to schedule an appointment.

Feminine Urgicare knows how hard it is to get an appointment with an OB/GYN. If you don’t want to wait months to see your usual doctor for your well-woman exam, Feminine Urgicare can help.

What can I expect during well-woman exams?

Feminine Urgicare takes a holistic approach, and you can expect a comprehensive evaluation at your well-woman exam. First, they collect a urine sample, and then the medical assistant checks your weight and blood pressure.

They review and update your medical, obstetric, and gynecological history, and ask about your menstrual cycle. They also ask about the types of medications and nutritional supplements you take, and your usual diet and exercise habits. 

A women’s health specialist does a physical, pelvic, and breast exam. Depending on your age, your doctor may also perform a Pap smear, a screening test for cervical cancer. For the test, they collect cells from the cervix during your pelvic exam. 

Your provider talks to you about your health and makes recommendations to keep you well, such as updating vaccinations, quitting smoking, and the importance of getting at least seven hours of sleep a night.

Feminine Urgicare also provides contraception advice and menopause management.

What health screenings are part of well-woman exams?

In addition to the Pap smear, your provider at Feminine Urgicare may recommend other screening tests based on your age and gynecological history. Common well-women health screenings include:

  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing
  • Mammograms for breast cancer
  • Bone density test for osteoporosis
  • Blood work to check glucose and cholesterol levels

Feminine Urgicare is a state-of-the-art practice dedicated to providing comprehensive, compassionate, and individualized care that meets your changing health needs.
