Women’s health is an area of health care focused on addressing a woman’s reproductive health and general health issues that women commonly face. There’s a degree of crossover between women’s health and primary health.
Some of the health issues that impact women include:
Dr. Taweh takes the time to get to know the women in his care, delivering highly customized treatments and health guidance to help women improve their daily quality of life and avoid chronic health issues.
Well woman exams are where women receive the screenings needed at each phase of life. These annual visits always include discussing your current health and any changes you’ve noticed since your last visit.
A pelvic exam is also part of the process. This quick exam provides Dr. Taweh the chance to visually check your vaginal and cervical tissue for signs of abnormalities. If he sees areas of concern, he will discuss which diagnostic tools are the right fit.
Occasionally, a Pap smear is performed during pelvic exams. These simple screenings can detect signs of cervical cancer in the earliest possible stages when treatment is often most effective. You may not need a Pap smear every year, especially if your recent screenings have come back with a negative result.
There are no topics that are off-limits during a well woman exam. As you move through the phases of life, your women’s health needs will shift and change, and you may want to focus on different issues.
Some of the topics commonly broached during well woman exams include:
