Women’s health involves health care related to women’s unique needs, including gynecological and breast health. Women’s health care at Vitality MDs involves annual wellness exams that can detect or rule out health concerns before problems arise.
Wellness checkups are recommended beginning at age 21 or when women become sexually active, whichever comes first.
The following comprehensive women’s health care services are available at Vitality MDs:
Routine gynecological care is highly individualized, as every woman is different. Your Vitality MDs provider tailors each appointment and treatment plan based on your age, health, disease risk factors, and lifestyle. Your gynecologist monitors your health over time and notes any changes or concerns.
When you arrive at Vitality MDs for a women’s wellness exam, your provider reviews your medical history and asks questions about your menstrual cycle or symptoms.
They check your vital signs and complete a breast and pelvic exam, which may include a Pap smear to screen for cervical cancer.
During a Pap test, you lie down on a comfortable exam table and place your feet in stirrups while your doctor inserts a speculum into your vagina. They take a sample of cells from your cervix, which is the lower part of your uterus.
Your OB/GYN specialist may also complete a human papillomavirus (HPV) test during your pelvic exam and send the results to a lab for analysis.
They perform health screenings using a simple blood test to check for STDs if you’re at risk, hormone imbalances, or nutrient deficiencies. Your doctor recommends additional diagnostic testing for specific gynecological conditions when necessary.
After a pelvic exam and wellness check, your doctor answers questions you may have about your overall health and wellness. They offer contraception, family planning services, infertility treatments, and vaccinations for certain diseases and illnesses.
If you require medications or minimally invasive procedures for menopause symptoms, an STD, heavy menstrual bleeding, infertility issues, cervical cancer, or other women’s health concerns, your doctor reviews treatment options with you.
