Women’s health may seem complex because there are so many different aspects that are included within a woman’s comprehensive care. However, when you visit experts who understand every aspect of your health, it won’t feel so complex. At the Women’s Clinic at Southside Medical Center in Atlanta, GA, we offer different services designed for women to treat, prevent, and assist and every arena of health and wellness.
From women’s wellness exams to breast cancer screenings and everything in between, it’s important that you have a provider who you can trust, someone who can walk with you through each season of your life.
What Are the Main Issues in Women’s Health?
Women’s health may seem complex, but it doesn’t have to be. When you have an office staffed with an experienced team and physicians you can trust to walk with you through each season, you can feel confident that you will receive excellent care no matter what you’re going through. At the Women’s Center at Southside Medical, we treat women from all walks of life and help them walk through each season of their lives and every health issue or concern they face.
Pregnancy is one of the most exciting times of your life, but it can also be an uncertain time, one that makes you feel anxious about the future. We offer prenatal care at the Women’s Clinic and can see you through pregnancy, from your very first sonogram to your birth and beyond.
We know that pregnancy is an exciting time in your life, and we want to be here for you and answer any questions you may have, address your concerns, and help you experience the healthiest pregnancy possible.
Pregnancy testing is often the first step in prenatal care. However, for some, a positive pregnancy test is the last thing that they want to see. Some women long for a positive test. Others hope for a negative test, but whatever the case, we offer pregnancy testing at the Women’s Clinic so that you can get a definitive answer as to whether or not you are pregnant.
Sometimes you can’t rely on those drugstore pregnancy tests to deliver the most accurate results. However, you can contact our experts and set up a pregnancy test appointment, and you will get results that you can count on so that you can plan for the future, one way or another.
Women’s Health Care
As a woman, your healthcare should consist of more than just one gynecological visit per year. In order to be preventative and prescriptive, we offer well-woman exams as well as other forms of testing that can help put your mind at ease regarding your health or help you take the next steps to maintain optimal health.
Well Woman Exams
A well-woman exam is an office visit that evaluates the reproductive health and general health of a woman. We recommend that women begin scheduling these appointments at the age of 21 or when they become sexually active. Doing so can help you maintain optimal sexual and reproductive health and protect your body. It can also help you learn the importance of prevention and early detection.
A well-woman exam is an important part of your health as a woman because it allows you to discuss everything from your cycle to any other health concerns that you may have. You will typically undergo a breast exam, a PAP smear, and a pelvic exam during this appointment.
A breast exam is a routine exam that examines the breast tissue to confirm that your breasts are healthy and free of any questionable lumps or bumps. A breast exam is an essential part of your well-woman exam because it will help keep you aware of the health of your breasts and allow you to take action if you ever notice any changes. We can also show you how to perform a breast self-exam at home between visits.
Women are more susceptible to some specific cancers, including breast and cervical cancer. For that reason, we perform different cancer screenings to help you stay one step ahead of the disease. Making cancer screenings a regular part of your health will help you feel confident in your health and prepare you to take action if ever necessary.
A PAP smear is a test that involves the collection of a sample of cells from the cervix. It checks for cervical cancer and ensures that your reproductive system is in good health. An abnormal PAP smear is not necessarily indicative of cancer, but it will allow us to take the necessary steps to address your health when needed.
A pelvic exam is another exam performed during a well-woman appointment and is an important part of assessing your reproductive health. This exam is designed to check for any irregularities, including the abnormal position of the ovaries or ovarian cysts.
If for any reason, you need to undergo STD testing, you want to go to an office staffed by professionals you can trust. At the Women’s Clinic, we offer STD testing. Here, you can come into a comfortable and confidential setting and receive the care and attention that you need so that you can obtain answers regarding your current and future health.
If you experience any kind of infection at any point, you need to be able to seek out care, someone who can prescribe medication and give you the care you need to heal. If you’re suffering from an infection, you can make an appointment at the Women’s Clinic to seek out the care that you need so that you can get back to living infection-free as soon as possible.
Family planning can be stressful, and if you need options, we can help. We offer family planning assistance at our Women’s Clinic so that you can take the steps you need to conceive or prevent pregnancy for as long as you want to. Whether you are planning on having a baby in the distant future or want to get pregnant as soon as possible, we can discuss family planning with you so that you can be prepared each step of the way.
Menstrual Cycle Care
Your menstrual cycle is more than just a monthly inconvenience. It is an indicator of your reproductive and general health. If you are suffering from menstrual cycle abnormalities, pain, or irregular periods, our physicians can help address your concerns and help you achieve a normal cycle. If you have any concerns about the length of your cycle or symptoms associated with your cycle, you can discuss them with one of our physicians, who will help you find a resolution.
Eventually, every woman goes through menopause. Menopause doesn’t have to be a difficult time. Menopause is an important part of women’s health and needs to be treated accordingly. We can help walk with you through this life stage and give you the tools you need to feel your best day in and day out.
We can help provide you with relief from some of the most common symptoms associated with menopause and guide you in the right direction so that you can achieve true vibrancy and optimal health at this time of your life.

No matter which stage of life you are walking through, whether you are a young woman in your early 20s, a woman ready to start a family, or a woman walking through menopause, we can help walk you through each women’s health issue you face. If you are a woman, you are a candidate for women’s health care treatments.
The Importance of Preventative Care
It’s important that you invest in your current and future health by scheduling and attending preventative appointments and seeking out professional care so that you can undergo the necessary tests and get the information you need regarding your health. Healthcare doesn’t need to be difficult, and thanks to our experienced team at the Women’s Clinic, we have taken all of the guesswork out of the process.
