What happens during a well-woman exam?
Your Nurture Women’s Health physician tailors well-woman exams to your personalized needs. Each appointment includes:
Vital sign check
When you arrive at an exam, your physician weighs you and checks your blood pressure, pulse, and other vital signs.
Medical history review
Your physician reviews your personal and family medical history and asks questions about symptoms you may have. They inquire about past surgeries, prior diagnoses, and medications you’re taking.
Your women’s health specialist completes a comprehensive physical exam that includes breast and pelvic exams. They might insert a tiny instrument into your vagina during a Pap test, to take samples of cervical cells so a lab can detect signs of cervical cancer.
In addition to a Pap test, your physician might recommend a mammogram, blood tests, urine tests, STD testing, ultrasound, or other imaging procedures if you’re at risk of or experience symptoms of a medical problem.
You don’t require treatment if you’re in good health. However, if you have a general health or gynecological problem, your doctor may suggest lifestyle changes, medications, hormone replacement therapy, or minimally invasive surgical procedures.
The Nurture Women’s Health team offers birth control, immunizations, fertility evaluations, and aesthetic procedures like laser hair removal, non-surgical skin tightening, and vaginal rejuvenation.
How often should I schedule a well-woman exam?
Schedule a well-woman exam every year or more often if your Nurture Women’s Health specialist recommends it. See your physician if you experience new or unusual symptoms, such as pelvic pain or heavy menstrual bleeding.
