Well Woman Exam Q & A

Why is a well-woman exam important?

Regular well-woman exams are part of your overall preventive health care plan. These evaluations are essential to ensure you’re in good health and to intervene early if anything is awry. It’s important to schedule routine well-woman exams to:

  • Manage your weight
  • Check your hormone levels 
  • Start or change your birth control
  • Prevent or treat STDs
  • Get screened for cervical cancer and human papillomavirus (HPV)

It’s also important to schedule well-woman exams to manage chronic conditions, including abnormal bleeding and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). 

What should I expect during a well-woman exam?

The caring OB/GYN team at Contemporary Women's Care wants to get to know you as a whole person. It’s helpful to transfer over your medical records from your previous provider so your OB/GYN can get information about your health history.

Your OB/GYN talks with you about your personal and family health and discusses any current health concerns you may have. After talking with you and learning about your health, your OB/GYN performs several tests or screenings, such as:

  • Breast exam
  • Pelvic exam
  • Pap smear
  • Blood pressure check
  • Neurological evaluation 
  • Height and weight evaluation
  • Vaccination updates, such as the HPV shot

Your OB/GYN at Contemporary Women's Care can order any essential lab testing, including a urinalysis or blood tests. She can even give you a referral for a mammogram.  

If you want to get started on birth control or change to a different birth control, your OB/GYN can help you select the right type and give you a prescription. She can also place an intrauterine device (IUD), often during the same visit. 

How often do I need a well-woman exam?

In general, the team at Contemporary Women's Care schedules you for well-woman exams once a year, right around the same time. But you might need to come in two or more times per year if you need help managing a chronic condition, have abnormal Pap smear results, or have a breast issue. 

Contemporary Women's Care provides personalized well-woman exams in a comfortable environment. Request your evaluation either online or over the phone today.
