It is important for all women to have regular female exams. Preventative medicine and early detection are important to treating most medical conditions. Depending upon your age, risk factors and previous findings, we may recommend certain tests. These may include pap smears, screening for HPV, certain vaccines, infection testing (screening for sexually transmitted infections), mammograms, ultrasounds, bone density scans, and blood evaluations like cholesterol and thyroid.
Not all women need these tests every year. The guidelines continually change. But be reassured that at Partners OBGYN we keep up with the latest recommendations and make adjustments based on our patient population.
At your well woman visit we review your medical history, family history and take the opportunity to address your health and wellness. This personalized care instead of “cookie cutter” care will empower you to have the healthiest outcomes.
