Women Wellness Q&A

What women wellness services are available?

The women wellness services available at Forward Care Family Practice focus on optimizing the health of women by addressing their unique needs.

The team provides a variety of comprehensive wellness services for adult women, including:

  • Pelvic exams
  • Breast exams
  • Pap smears
  • STD testing
  • Birth control counseling

They also address your nutrition, exercise plan, lifestyle, and other factors that affect your physical, emotional, and mental wellness.

What can I expect during a women wellness visit?

During a women wellness visit, the Forward Care Family Practice team begins by reviewing your personal and family medical history. They also discuss any changes you experience with your general physical health, your sexual health, and your period.

As part of your visit, you can expect to have a pelvic exam where your provider evaluates the health and function of your vagina and reproductive organs. During your pelvic exam, they can take a sample of cells from your cervix (Pap smear) to evaluate for cancer.

The Forward Care Family Practice team also offers routine breast exams to identify lumps and other abnormalities that can increase your risk for breast cancer.

If you’re interested in exploring your options for birth control to prevent unwanted pregnancies, the team can evaluate which methods are a good fit for you. They offer a variety of birth control options, including oral medications, implants, and intrauterine devices (IUD).

Will I need lab work during my women wellness visit?

You might need blood work if you have existing health issues like diabetes that need monitoring or if you have unexplained symptoms that need a diagnosis.

You might also need testing if you have concerns about STDs. The team provides on-site testing for diseases like syphilis, chlamydia, and herpes.

The on-site medical lab allows the team to test for many other issues, including:

  • COVID-19
  • Pregnancy
  • Mononucleosis
  • Urinary tract infections

The team may request additional lab work depending on your specific needs and symptoms or monitor your progress with your treatment for an infection or another medical issue. Based on the results of your test, the team can recommend resources that help you improve your physical health and longevity.
