A well-woman visit is one of the most important aspects of OBGYN care. This visit is designed to promote preventative steps you can take, identify risk factors for disease, and establish a doctor- patient relationship. Your annual well-woman exam will include a pelvic exam and screening tests for cervical and breast cancer. During your visit, we encourage you to ask questions to help us address any concerns you have about your health.
There are several forms of contraception ranging from barrier methods and hormonal birth control to long-acting IUDs and Nexplanon insertions. A gynecologist can help you choose the most effective form of birth control that has properties best fit for your needs and lifestyle. Some types of contraception such as birth control, for example, can be used to treat endometriosis, acne, and polycystic ovary syndrome.
