Well Woman Care Q & A
What is well-woman care?
Well-woman care is a type of preventive care that enables excellent reproductive and whole-body wellness. New Wave Physicians Group recommends that all women have annual well-woman exams, with acute care as needed for urgent health needs between yearly exams.
A well-woman exam provides the information and tools you need to manage your health and avoid illness. It’s a chance to be proactive about your health, so you can ultimately live a longer and happier life.
What screenings does well-woman care include?
Well-woman care includes preventive screenings for whole-body health problems as well as reproductive problems. You have specific screenings based on your age, medical history, health risk factors, and other factors. Common screenings include:
- Hypertension (high blood pressure)
- High cholesterol
- High blood sugar (prediabetes) and Type 2 diabetes
- Mental health
- Infectious disease - hepatitis C and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
Cancer screening is also a big part of well-woman exams. All people may need certain cancer screenings like colorectal, lung, and skin cancer testing based on their individual situation.
As a female, you also need cervical cancer screening with a Pap smear, human papillomavirus (HPV) test, or both, every 1-3 years.
You may need a clinical breast exam yearly and a mammogram to screen for breast cancer starting at around the age of 40.
What health problems does well-woman care address?
Well-woman care at New Wave Physicians Group can help with nearly any health issue you have, including chronic disease management for diabetes and thyroid disease, and sexually transmitted disease testing and treatment.
If you need care for a female-specific issue, such as irregular periods, heavy periods, menopause symptoms, vaginal dryness, pain during sex, or any other problem, don't hesitate to ask for help.
Medication, lifestyle changes, medical weight loss, and other treatments can relieve your symptoms and help you feel better.
If your issues occur because of hormone imbalance — a very common problem during menopause and sometimes earlier as well — treatments like bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can ease many of your symptoms and help you transition through this period of change comfortably.
