Women’s Healthcare Q & A
What is a well-woman visit?
While your annual well-woman visit is certainly an opportunity to get your Pap smear and pelvic exam, it’s also your chance to check in on your health and well-being and discuss your concerns with your trusted medical provider. At Eze Health Centers, the providers offer a holistic approach to health care, examining all aspects of your health and lifestyle to help you improve your overall wellness.
During your well-woman visit, your doctor provides all of the wellness exams, health screenings, and assessments necessary to monitor your health. This includes checking your blood pressure, weight, and BMI, and of course, your Pap smear. Then your doctor asks questions about your life, health, and overall well-being.
Your answers help inform your doctor’s advice on how you could improve your wellness and where your lifestyle choices could be healthier, so it’s important to be as honest and open as possible.
What should I do if I need birth control refills?
The doctors at Eze Health Center provide birth control counseling and can write your birth control refill prescriptions. They will ask you questions about your experience with your current birth control to ensure you’re taking the best prescription or using the best form of birth control for your needs.
While birth control pills are an effective solution for many women, others suffer from unwanted side effects like weight gain, mood swings, or irregular bleeding.
What do I need to know about STDs?
The health care providers at Eze Health Center offer STD education and testing services. They work with you to help you understand your risk for STDs and how you can protect yourself. STDs like herpes and HPV are widespread but easily preventable.
Practicing safe sex is an important part of preserving your well-being. Barrier methods like condoms are the only way to stop the spread of STDs during sexual activity. If you or your partner have multiple partners or if a condom slips off or breaks during sexual activity, you should get tested.
If you’re due for a well-woman visit and are looking for a health care provider who will help you improve your overall well-being, call to make an appointment today.
