Why Are Women’s Health Exams Important?
Annual well women’s exams are important for identifying potential health issues that are yet to present major symptoms. These visits involve an evaluation of your full medical history, including family history, information about your periods and menstrual cycle, any symptoms you may be experiencing, the type and level of your sexual activity, and specific concerns you may have. Conducting these exams can help us monitor your health and ensure your long-term happiness.
What Is Included in an Exam?
Along with discussing your concerns and getting a thorough assessment of your medical and family history, our doctors will also perform a physical examination. This can include specific tests such as a pelvic exam and well as a general evaluation. Some of the things we usually check during these visits are your:
- Blood pressure
- Hormone levels
- Liver function
- Heart activity
- Respiratory system
- Pelvic region
Can Women Benefit From Preventative Care?
Preventative care can do a lot to stop serious complications from arising. Women who experience issues such as pelvic pain or irregular periods can find an annual checkup especially helpful. By identifying the source of these problems, we can make lifestyle recommendations and offer treatment before these concerns become serious.
What Are Some Common Women’s Health Issues?
Everything from bone fractures to heart disease is different in women, which makes preventive measures that target a woman’s unique makeup highly effective. For example, because of hormone levels, women are more prone to bone density issues, especially as they age, putting them at a higher risk of fracture. Seeking medical advice to address osteoporosis before it becomes an issue helps women lead happy, active lives. Women’s organs, namely the reproductive organs, are also highly specialized in their functions, and the doctors at the Montes Medical Group can help you navigate the issues and provide the expertise and care needed to keep these organs functioning properly, whether or not you have children already, or plan on having them.
