Women's Health Q&A
What is women’s health?
Women’s health provides comprehensive general and preventive care for women of all ages. Even though men and women experience many of the same health problems, women’s unique reproductive systems make them more susceptible to certain conditions and illnesses.
Even if you feel relatively healthy, it’s important to visit Prime Choice Family Clinic & Urgent Care at least once a year for a well-woman exam. Routine exams can alert you to potentially serious ailments when they are most responsive to treatment.
What services does women’s health provide?
Prime Choice Family Clinic & Urgent Care offers a variety of women’s health services, including:
If you’re sexually active but don’t want to get pregnant, consider contraception. There are many types of contraception, including oral medication, intrauterine devices (IUDs), vaginal rings, and a birth control shot.
Following an in-office exam and a discussion of your goals, your provider can make a recommendation that aligns with your needs.
A Pap smear is a preventive screening procedure that assesses your risk of cervical cancer. During a Pap smear, your provider gently collects a sample of cells from your cervix using a cotton swab. They send your swab to a laboratory, which analyzes it for the presence of cancerous or precancerous cells.
During a breast exam, your Prime Choice Family Clinic & Urgent Care provider uses their hands and eyes to assess the health of your breasts. If they detect anything unusual, like an abnormal growth or a lump, they can refer you to a specialist for a mammogram.
A mammogram is a special type of X-ray that helps diagnose breast cancer early on when it’s easiest to treat.
