Women's Care Q & A

What is women's care?

Women's care focuses on the aspects of health that are unique to women or that affect women more often. Areas covered by women's care include:

  • Pap smears
  • Birth control
  • Cancer screening
  • Bone density testing
  • Sexually transmitted disease (STDs) testing and treatment
  • Sexual health
  • Menstruation issues
  • Preconception counseling
  • Menopause
  • HPV (human papillomavirus) vaccination

Your regular women's care consultations might also include screening and treatment for common problems like incontinence, mental health, diabetes, and high blood pressure.

What happens at a women's care consultation?

High Risk Pregnancy Doctors tailors your women's care consultation to your specific needs. You can consult with your OB/GYN about any chronic problems or urgent symptoms affecting your reproductive system.

Some of the more common women's care conditions include:

  • Endometriosis
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Dysmenorrhea (painful periods)
  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Pelvic pain
  • Pelvic prolapse
  • Amenorrhea (absence of periods)

Another issue that causes women a great deal of distress is finding a breast lump. While most lumps turn out to be cysts or other noncancerous conditions, it's a worrying experience waiting to see whether you have breast cancer.

It's vital to get yourself checked out as quickly as possible if you find a lump in your breast. High Risk Pregnancy Doctors can examine your breasts and refer you for diagnostic tests such as a mammogram (breast X-ray) or ultrasound scan.

Your OB/GYN also encourages you to undergo a regular well-woman exam.

What is a well-woman exam?

A well-woman exam is a routine medical check-up that focuses on your reproductive health.

Your OB/GYN at High Risk Pregnancy Doctors looks at your medical history and conducts standard tests like blood pressure and heart rate, then performs an internal pelvic exam. This exam enables them to see if there are any abnormalities or signs of disease on your vulva, vagina, or cervix.

If you're due, they can also carry out a Pap smear during your pelvic exam, taking a sample of cells to check for the earliest signs of cervical cancer.

You should attend High Risk Pregnancy Doctors once a year for a well-woman exam and have a Pap smear every three years. If previous Pap smear results have picked up any cell changes, you might need more frequent tests.
