Women's Health Q&A

What is women’s health?

Women’s health provides comprehensive medical care for girls and women. Even though both sexes experience many of the same health problems, a woman’s unique reproductive system increases the risk of certain gender-specific issues.

Routine checkups at Supreme All Care Health and Wellness can alert you to potentially serious issues early on when they respond best to treatment.

What services does women’s health include?

Supreme All Care Health and Wellness offers a variety of women’s health services, including:

Well-woman exams

A well-woman exam is an annual physical that includes preventive exams like Pap tests and breast exams. During a Pap test, your provider takes a sample of cells from your cervix. The sample is then analyzed by a laboratory for the presence of precancerous or cancerous cells.

A breast exam involves your provider carefully examining your breasts for the presence of unusual growths or lumps. If they notice anything unusual, they can refer you to a specialist for a mammogram. 

STD testing and counseling

If you’re sexually active with multiple partners, it’s important to undergo STD testing every three to six months. Supreme All Care Health and Wellness can test for all types of STDs, including gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, and HIV.

Family planning, pregnancy testing, and birth control

Family planning is a women’s health specialty that focuses on prenatal care, birth control, and pregnancy. Your provider can make recommendations based on whether you want to have children or not.  

Treatment of vaginitis and yeast infections

Conditions that irritate your reproductive organs, like vaginitis, yeast infections, and UTIs, can affect your quality of life. Following an exam and official diagnosis, your provider can develop a treatment plan that minimizes your symptoms and speeds up your body’s natural healing process.

When should I schedule a women’s health appointment?

Supreme All Care Health and Wellness recommends scheduling a women’s health appointment at least once a year. That rule applies even if you feel relatively healthy. Conditions like high blood pressure and heart disease don’t always present obvious symptoms. Routine checkups can improve your health and quality of life.
