Women’s Health Q&A

What is different about women’s health?

Women’s bodies are unique. Female reproductive organs are susceptible to health conditions that men don’t experience, and certain diseases can impact women differently than men.

Ahmed Family Practice understands that women have different needs when it comes to health care, and it is proud to offer comprehensive women’s health care services for all ages. Patients can find preventive gynecological care that includes Pap smears and breast exams. 

Women of different ages have different health concerns, but Ahmed Family Practice partners with you to care for your body through all stages of life. Whether you’re considering starting a family, you’re entering menopause, or you’re somewhere in-between, your provider works with you to help you enjoy a healthy life.

What does a women’s wellness exam include?

Your wellness exam focuses on your physical well-being. Ahmed Family Practice personalizes your exam based on your age, medical history, and sexual history. Most women’s health appointments include a:

  • Review of medical history
  • Physical exam
  • Breast exam
  • Pelvic exam
  • Pap smear 

Your provider may recommend some additional health screenings, such as sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing or a mammogram. Ahmed Family Practice can tell you more about the types of testing that might be right for you.

When should I get a women’s wellness exam?

In general, women should get a wellness exam annually. Routine gynecological care is an important part of maintaining your health, no matter your age. Regular exams help your provider detect the risk of cancer and other conditions early on when they’re easier to treat. 

Take your exam as an opportunity to ask any questions you have about your health. Be prepared to discuss your medical history, menstrual periods, sexual health, and any other health conditions you may have.

Your annual exam serves as a benchmark for your health, allowing your doctor to evaluate changes in your body that could put you at risk for health complications. For example, menopause comes with a decrease in estrogen, which can affect your bones and lead to osteoporosis. Depending on your unique health history, your doctor lets you know if you could benefit from closer medical monitoring.

Or you may need to explore birth control options as part of your family planning. Ahmed Family Practice can help you with all your women’s health needs.
