Why are well woman visits important?
- Posted on: Apr 15 2020
During well-woman visits at Woodlands OBGYN Associates in the Woodlands, TX, women have the opportunity to work with their doctor to learn more about their reproductive health while minimizing health risks. Well-woman visits offer the chance for women to speak to a professional about their needs. Every year, women should visit their team at Woodlands OBGYN Associates for a well-woman visit to evaluate for:
- Pelvic disorders
- Breast cancer
- Cervical cancer
- Reproductive concerns
- Preventative services
What happens during a well-woman visit?
Well-woman visits include screenings, evaluations, and counseling on a wide range of health topics. Our team of providers can make recommendations regarding preventative care of the reproductive system as well as discuss overall health and wellness as it relates to their reproductive health. Screenings such as breast cancer screenings and cervical cancer screenings may be performed on a routine basis. Women can take this time to discuss any other concerns they might have, including difficulties conceiving a child, the transition into menopause, or concerns regarding unusual or heavy periods. Our team is discreet and offers women solutions based on their age and reproductive health, while also offering diagnostic testing to provide a basis for recommended treatments.
How often should I visit my OBGYN?
Women of reproductive age should schedule routine well-woman visits with their provider at least once a year, during which discussions of reproductive health can occur in a discreet yet informative manner. Women who are experiencing any concerning symptoms such as changes in menstruation, inability to conceive, and lumps in the breasts, should make an appointment at our office for a full evaluation to determine the cause of these concerns.
Women who are pregnant should ask their doctor about the routine prenatal visits recommended to monitor growth and development of the fetus. Our team also works with women to develop a birth plan and discuss screenings for genetic or developmental concerns, including screenings for abnormalities such as Downs syndrome.
