Women's Health Q & A
What is women’s health care?
Women’s health care focuses on the medical needs of biological females. This branch of medicine emphasizes what makes women unique, particularly the female reproductive system.
What does women’s health care encompass?
Women’s health care is a supplement to your general health care because it delves into the issues and concerns that women may have during any phase of life. Typically, you’ll receive most of your women’s health care during well-woman exams. These exams mainly focus on wellness and disease prevention, usually including:
Pelvic exam In a pelvic exam, your provider checks your female reproductive organs to look for irregularities or issues.
Pap test A Pap test, or Pap smear, is a screening test for cervical cancer. In this test, your provider collects a tiny sample of cells from the cervix (the opening to the uterus.) Many women have Pap tests during pelvic exams, but you may not need a Pap test every year. Your provider can recommend a testing schedule based on your age and cervical cancer risk factors.
Breast exam Your well-woman exams may include a breast exam, in which your provider gently checks your breast tissue for lumps or other irregularities. Depending on your age and risk factors, your provider may also recommend a radiology test called a mammogram, which is a special X-ray of your breast tissue to screen for breast cancer. Your women’s health care at TruCare Clinic and Urgent Care also includes specific care tailored to your stage of life. For example, when you’re in your 20s and 30s, you might need help with birth control, family planning, or painful periods. In your 40s and 50s, you might need help with menopause management. Women of any age may need sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing. If you’re sexually active and have more than one partner or have any reason to suspect that you could have been exposed to an STD, schedule STD testing as soon as possible. Your women’s health care can also encompass other aspects of your health, such as vaccinations to prevent disease and other types of medical care based on your specific needs.
