What Could I Expect from a Well-Woman Exam?
A well-woman exam is considered an essential part of a woman’s health care practices. These exams offer you the opportunity to meet with a qualified women’s health specialist to discuss concerns about family planning options, your menstrual cycle, and general health concerns.
The process typically begins with gathering your medical history. During this discussion, you can also raise any concerns you may have. A breast exam is then performed.
A PAP smear and pelvic exam are the most known parts of a well-woman exam. A PAP smear collects a sample of cells from the cervix to check for cervical cancer. A pelvic exam is performed to check for cysts, irregularities, positioning of the ovaries, and more.
When Should I Seek Care?
Well-woman exams are typically recommended to all women beginning at age 21 or when a woman becomes sexually active, whichever is to happen first. If you have any concerns about your health or notice any changes, it is important to seek care as soon as possible.
All of our care at our Atlanta women’s center is performed by board-certified practitioners who are on the staff of major metropolitan hospitals. This allows you to choose where you want to have procedures performed. Care is performed with compassion, professionalism, and confidentiality. Your health, safety, and comfort are our top priority at all times.
