Well-Woman Exam Q & A

What is a well-woman exam?

A well-woman exam is a medical appointment focusing on preventive health care for women’s needs throughout their lives. Though reproductive health is the main focus of women’s visits, the Elite Women’s Care Center team also offers guidance on general health issues you can face as a woman, such as hypertension (high blood pressure), heart disease, and mental health.

What are the benefits of a well-woman exam?

A well-woman exam can enhance your quality of life. These annual visits offer a powerful avenue for detecting problems in their earliest stages when treatments are most effective. 

During your appointments, you also have the opportunity to talk about areas of concern with your provider or ask for health and wellness tips so you can thrive in life.

Issues you might like to bring up may include:

  • Heavy periods
  • Contraception options
  • Fertility planning
  • Pelvic pain
  • Abnormal bleeding
  • STIs
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Cervical cancer
  • Sexual health

If you have passed the childbearing years and entered menopause, the compassionate team at Elite Women’s Care Center learns about your symptoms and can provide treatments tailored to your specific needs.

At Elite Women’s Care Center, your well-woman exam won’t have a “one-size-fits-all” approach. Instead, your visit is highly individualized; your practitioner takes the time to understand your body and promote your overall health.

What can I expect during a well-woman exam?

When you come into the practice for your exam, you can expect some or all of the following:

  • Pap smear test
  • Pelvic exam
  • Breast exam
  • Urine test
  • Blood test
  • STI testing, as needed or requested

During your visit, feel free to discuss any concerns you might have. 

How often should I have a well-woman exam?

If you’re healthy, you should visit Elite Women’s Care Center for a well-woman exam once a year. If any tests come back with abnormal results, your practitioner may want to see you more frequently to monitor your health or until your condition improves. You can then return to visiting annually.

Well-woman exams offer preventive care that can significantly impact your overall health and wellness.
