Service Description

A well-woman exam, also known as a women's health checkup or gynecological exam, is a routine medical examination designed to assess and promote the overall health and well-being of women. Here's a description of what a well-woman exam typically involves: Health History Review: The appointment often begins with a discussion between the patient and healthcare provider about the patient's medical history, including any existing health conditions, medications, family history of illnesses, and concerns or symptoms the patient may have. Physical Examination: A comprehensive physical examination may be conducted, including an assessment of the patient's general appearance, skin, and body mass index (BMI). Specific areas of examination may include the breasts, abdomen, and lymph nodes. Breast Exam: The healthcare provider may perform a clinical breast examination, checking for any lumps, abnormalities, or changes in breast tissue. They may also educate the patient on breast self-exams and breast health. Pelvic Exam: For individuals of reproductive age or with specific gynecological concerns, a pelvic exam may be performed. This includes an examination of the external genitalia, a Pap smear (if recommended), and an internal examination of the cervix and pelvic organs using a speculum. Pap Smear (Pap Test): A Pap smear may be conducted to screen for cervical cancer or detect abnormal cervical cell changes. The healthcare provider collects a sample of cervical cells, which is then sent to a laboratory for analysis. Sexual Health and STI Testing: The well-woman exam may include discussions about sexual health, safe practices, and screenings for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) if indicated or requested. Follow-Up: Depending on the findings of the examination and any test results, the healthcare provider may recommend follow-up appointments or referrals to specialists for further evaluation and treatment. A well-woman exam is an essential part of preventative healthcare for women, helping to detect and address health issues early, provide guidance on maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and ensure that patients receive appropriate screenings and care tailored to their specific needs at various life stages. The frequency and specific components of the exam may vary depending on a woman's age, medical history, and risk factors. It's important for women to discuss their individual healthcare needs with their healthcare provider.
