What services are included in gynecologic care?

The comprehensive gynecologic care available at Martin, Lee & Page OBGYN includes:

  • Birth control
  • Infertility evaluation and treatment

Why is a yearly well-woman exam so important?

A well-woman exam is a regular gynecologic checkup that focuses on preventive care. Like other types of preventive checkups, the goal of a well-woman exam is to identify potential problems while they can still be prevented or easily treated.

During a well-woman exam, you receive some or all of the following services:

  • Breast exam
  • Pelvic exam with Pap smear to screen for cervical cancer
  • Blood tests
  • Mammogram
  • Screening for osteoporosis
  • Screening for chronic diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure
  • Family planning, including preconception counseling and birth control
  • Testing for sexually transmitted diseases
  • Diet and nutrition counseling
  • Women’s health education
  • Immunizations

While most women should get a yearly gynecologic checkup, the frequency of your well-woman exam depends on your overall health and whether you’re at a higher risk for gynecologic problems.

When should you seek medical help for a gynecologic problem?
