What is women’s health?

Women’s health is an area of medical practice centered on your reproductive health and wellness. While there are many health issues like heart disease and anxiety that affect both women and men, each sex also has a unique set of needs linked to their reproductive system and hormonal balance.

 

In addition to gynecologic concerns, women’s health also encompasses breast health and urinary health. At Crescent Direct Primary Care, Dr. Jasarevic provides women’s health services that span adolescence, adulthood, retirement age, and beyond.  

What are well woman exams?

Well woman exams are the foundation of excellent women’s health care. These annual visits are an opportunity to get the screenings you need for your age and overall health. They’re also an opportunity for you to ask questions and express concerns about any area of women’s health.

 

A pelvic exam is usually part of your well women examinations. Pap smear testing is done periodically to search for signs of cervical cancer. During your visits, you’re encouraged to ask about any women’s health issue you like, including:

 

  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Birth control
  • Pelvic pain
  • Fertility care
  • STDs
  • Menopause
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Changes in sex drive
  • Urinary incontinence

 

These are just some of the topics commonly broached during well woman exams. Building an open, honest, and trusting bond with Dr. Jasarevic is the best way to make the most out of these visits.

How often do I need to come in for women’s health visits?

Most women benefit from coming in for annual well woman examinations. Many parents choose to bring their daughters in during their teens, although pelvic exams and Pap smear testing usually doesn’t begin until the early 20s or once a young woman becomes sexually active. 

 

If your last Pap smear screening did not reveal abnormal results, you might not need another screening for a couple of years. Of course if you’re experiencing a gynecologic issue, you may need to come in more than once a year until the matter is resolved. 

 

If you have additional questions about women’s health, booking a visit takes just moments online or over the phone. Make today the day you place your own needs at the top of your to-do list.
