Women's Health Q&A

What is women’s health?

Women’s health is an area of medical practice that addresses a woman’s unique health needs as she moves through the phases of her life. 

Reproductive health is a central focus within women’s health, but you might also receive guidance on issues like weight management and mental wellness during your visits. 

Preventive care is another important part of women’s health care. Routine visits are often called well-woman exams because the goal is to deliver the screenings and treatments you need to live a healthy, happy life. 

There’s no need to live with painful or disruptive symptoms when help is readily available at Neighborhood Urgent Care. It’s also a good idea to seek medical care sooner than later, as some women’s health issues can worsen without treatment.   

What should I expect during a women’s health visit?

Your women’s health visit begins with a routine gathering of your vital signs. Then, your physician asks you about any changes you’ve noticed or areas of concern you have. 

A pelvic exam is usually part of a well-woman exam. This exam gives your practitioner a chance to visually check your vaginal and cervical tissues for signs of abnormalities. Pap smear testing, which gathers a small sample of cells to screen for cervical cancer, is sometimes performed during a pelvic exam. 

If you’re experiencing ongoing symptoms, your visit might include additional screening options. 

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and pregnancy are common health concerns for many women. Neighborhood Urgent Care offers STD screenings and pregnancy tests to ensure you receive the care you need to stay healthy and achieve your family planning goals. 

What kinds of issues can I discuss with my women’s health specialist?

Being as open and honest as possible is the best way to get the most out of your women’s health visits. At Neighborhood Urgent Care, your practitioner is here to help you with any health issues, so you can always let them know your needs and concerns. 

Some of the issues you can discuss with your specialist include:

  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Pelvic pain
  • Sexual health
  • Concerns about sexually transmitted disease
  • Abnormal discharge
  • Pain during urination
  • Painful sex
  • Family planning 
  • Prenatal care
