Practicing in Miami, Florida, the providers at FemCare OB-GYN offer many years of experience, both in private practice and in hospital care. Each one is fully prepared to provide the kind of Well Woman Exam that their patients need and want.
Women should start annual exams at the age of 21 or sooner if they are sexually active or have other women’s health issues. A regular exam ensures that if there are any problems, they are detected, diagnosed, and treated early. A woman should schedule an exam:
Some women assume that a Well Woman Exam isn’t necessary if they aren’t sexually active or don’t have plans for starting a family.
However, every woman can benefit from complete annual examination, regardless of the stage of life, she is in. A typical well woman exam consists of four parts:
Health History - Includes family health history, medical history, relationships and sexual partners, physical activity and eating habits, use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs, and mental health history. Additional screenings or lifestyle changes may be recommended.
Physical Exam - This involves a standard physical exam to look for any potential problems before they progress. Body mass index (BMI) is calculated and blood pressure checked, as well as ensuring immunizations are up to date.
Breast Exam - The doctor checks for any abnormalities that might indicate any signs of breast cancer. Patients are also taught how to conduct a monthly breast self-exam. This is usually done after a patient’s menstrual cycle has ended.
Pelvic Exam - A yearly pelvic exam along with a Pap smear is essential for every woman.
