What Are The Specifics Of Women’s Health?
There are a wide variety of conditions and diseases that directly affect women and their emotional and physical wellness. A women’s health exam provides diagnosis, treatment and future prevention of health concerns, and professional medical advice specific to women, including:
Women have unique health care needs, and our caring AllCare Family Medicine And Urgent Care in Tysons Corner team offer support, exams, and treatments tailored specifically to you.
Your experienced and friendly doctor will begin by discussing any health concerns you may have, running over your health history and any symptoms you may have experienced. Our caring team at AllCare Family Medicine And Urgent Care in Tysons Corner focuses on treating the patient before the disease, emphasizing prevention and overall wellness. We will conduct a head-to-toe exam, to check your weight, blood pressure and pulse. We will then carry out a series of exams tailored to your age and gender, including:
Your health provider will manually check for unusual lumps in your breasts, and if required, will recommend a further mammogram to check for the presence of breast cancer.
During your exam, feel free to bring up any questions you have regarding sexual health, contraception and family planning. If you have concerns about your current methods, our caring team is more than happy and ready to offer counseling and information regarding new types of birth control, including oral contraceptives, birth control implants, IUDs and other alternatives.
A pelvic exam is a comprehensive evaluation of your reproductive organs, to check for overall reproductive health and sexual wellness. Your doctor may take a small sample of cells from your cervix with a swab, a quick and painless procedure called a Pap smear, to determine the presence of cancerous and precancerous cells. If you currently have any irregular conditions, including abnormal periods, unpleasant discharge, rashes, or pain during or after intercourse, our board-certified doctors may recommend further blood work to screen for STDs and other health concerns.
As part of our philosophy of treating patients, physical health is just a part of overall wellbeing. If you find that you are tackling anxiety, depression or any other mental health conditions, our caring medical providers are here to listen to your concerns. Our women’s health exams are designed to cover all aspects of women’s health in one visit, and as emotional and mental health can influence your physical wellbeing, this exam is the optimal time to discuss any and all issues you may be facing.
Our supportive AllCare Family Medicine And Urgent Care in Tysons Corner team lead an individual approach with each patient. If you are generally healthy, your doctor will usually recommend an annual check-up. However, if you have a family history of any conditions related to women’s health, a serious illness or chronic condition, your health provider may recommend more frequent visits.
