Women’s Health Q & A
Why is a well woman examination important?
Most women recognize the importance of regular gynecological examinations. But they often don’t realize their checkup can be expanded to become a more comprehensive well woman exam — one that finds potential health issues throughout the body before they turn into major problems.
A well woman exam offers gynecologic care and so much more. It gives Drs Dashevsky and Hossain the opportunity to find early signs of all types of chronic diseases, including thyroid disease, heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes.
Another benefit of a well woman exam is that it gives you time to talk with the doctor about whatever concerns are on your mind. No matter what questions you might have, Drs Dashevsky and Hossain are there to help during a well woman exam.
What happens during a well woman exam?
A well woman exam begins like most health checkups, with questions about your medical history and current health, recording your weight, and taking your blood pressure. Since your risk for chronic disease will be evaluated, Dr. Dashevsky or Dr. Hossain may also order routine blood tests for cholesterol, blood sugar, and other markers of health.
In addition to a thorough physical examination, the following services are commonly included in a well woman exam:
- Breast exam
- Pelvic exam
- Pap smear to test for cervical cancer
- Birth control
- Preconception planning
- Testing for infections or sexually transmitted disease
- Immunizations — flu shot, vaccination boosters, or other adult immunizations to prevent shingles or pneumonia
- Recommended health screenings — osteoporosis, colorectal cancer
