Who can benefit from women’s health?
Women’s health provides comprehensive medical care to people with female reproductive organs. You don’t need to be sick or experiencing symptoms to benefit.
Regular women’s health checkups at Collin Medical and Wellness Group can alert you to underlying health problems and help you stay active and independent.
What medical services does women’s health provide?
The Collin Medical and Wellness Group team offers various women’s health services, including:
A Pap smear tests for cervical cancer. During treatment, your Collin Medical and Wellness Group provider collects a sample of cells from your cervix. If your results indicate you’re at risk of cancer, the team orders more specialized testing.
During a breast exam, your provider looks at both of your breasts, checking for differences in their size or shape. They also feel for any bumps, lumps, or abnormal growths. If they discover anything unusual, they can refer you to a nearby radiology lab for a mammogram (a breast X-ray).
Sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing analyzes samples of your blood, urine, or saliva for sexually transmitted infections. If you have sex with multiple partners, regular STD testing can provide peace of mind and protect your health.
Family planning is a women’s health subspecialty that focuses on pregnancy and pregnancy prevention.
If you’re thinking about starting a family, the team can recommend prenatal vitamins and other healthy lifestyle changes. Conversely, if you don’t want to get pregnant, they can prescribe oral birth control or an intrauterine device (IUD).
Immunizations, or vaccines, train your immune system to defend against harmful invaders, like viruses and bacteria. Staying up to date on your vaccinations can reduce your risk of infection and protect those around you.
How often do I need a women’s health appointment?
The Collin Medical and Wellness Group team recommends all women 25 and older schedule a women’s health appointment every two years.
It’s crucial to invest in preventive care, even if you feel healthy. Many chronic conditions, such as high blood pressure (hypertension) and thyroid disease, develop slowly without obvious symptoms.
Regular checkups with your primary care provider can protect your health and provide peace of mind. To request your women’s health checkup, call the office today, or click the online booking feature.
