Women’s health provides all-inclusive medical care to women. Even though both sexes experience many of the same health problems, women are more susceptible to certain ailments due to their reproductive systems and the hormones their bodies produce.
Even if you feel healthy, it’s important to participate in women’s health. Routine visits to Walk-In Wellness Family Clinic can alert you to chronic conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, or kidney disease when they’re easiest to treat.
At Walk-In Wellness Family Clinic, the team offers a variety of women’s health services, including:
A well-woman exam is a routine check-up that assesses your reproductive health. During the exam, your provider conducts a traditional physical, does a breast and pelvic exam, and orders a Pap test. If necessary, they can refer you to a radiology facility for a mammogram.
A Pap test is a preventive screening tool that assesses your risk of cervical cancer. During a Pap test, your provider gently collects a sample of cells from your cervix. They send your sample to a laboratory that analyzes it for the presence of precancerous or cancerous cells.
If you’re sexually active with different people, it’s a good idea to get tested for STDs each month. The team at Walk-In Wellness Family Clinic can write you a prescription for medication if necessary.
What’s more, they can educate you on how to practice safe sex, allowing you to protect your health and the health of your partners.
If you’re concerned about getting pregnant but aren’t interested in starting a family, the team can recommend birth control. There are several types of contraceptives, including oral birth control, patches, injections, and intrauterine devices (IUDs)
Menopause is a normal stage of the natural aging process, but it presents a variety of unpleasant side effects. The team at Walk-In Wellness Family Clinic can recommend treatment options like hormone replacement therapy to help you feel better.
How often you should schedule a well-woman exam depends on several factors, including your age and medical history. Ideally, the team at Walk-In Wellness Family Clinic recommends you visit the practice at least once a year.
