Women’s health provides complete care for people with female reproductive organs, and it’s vital to visit the doctor regularly. The natural aging process increases your risk of various health problems, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes.
Visiting the team at Today’s Wellness and Primary Care for a women’s health exam is one of the easiest ways to preserve your well-being.
What services does women’s health provide?
The team at Today’s Wellness and Primary Care offers various women’s health services, including:
A Pap test is used to screen for cervical cancer. Your provider uses a swab to collect cells from your cervix during the test. They send your sample to a laboratory, which analyzes it for cancer.
A physical exam assesses your health and well-being. During a physical, your provider examines your skin; checks your reflexes; weighs and measures you; looks at your eyes, ears, nose, and throat; palpates your organs; and conducts a breast and pelvic exam.
Your provider might also update your immunizations or refill your prescription medication (if necessary).
Lab work is a group of tests that analyze your blood, urine, or saliva. The team at Today’s Wellness and Primary Care uses lab work to diagnose various conditions, including nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, and diabetes.
If your provider discovers an abnormal bump or growth during a breast exam, they might recommend additional testing, like a mammogram. They can refer you to a nearby radiology facility for treatment.
Many menopausal women experience uncomfortable symptoms like hot flashes, mood swings, and vaginal dryness. A treatment like bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can restore your body to balance and provide lasting relief.
It’s important to practice safe sex if you sleep with multiple partners, don’t want to get pregnant, or both. The team at Today’s Wellness and Primary Care can recommend a type of birth control that aligns with your needs, such as oral contraceptives or an intrauterine device (IUD).
The team recommends scheduling a women’s health exam at least once a year. That’s especially true if you’re 30 or older or have an underlying health problem like high cholesterol or obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
