Annual Women's Well Check Exam

A Well Woman Exam is sometimes referred to as a gynecologist exam or just an annual exam, and regardless of gender identity, patients that have a vulva, breasts and/or a uterus should be getting this exam done once a year.

Removal of Uterine Implants (IUD)

An intrauterine device (IUD) should prevent pregnancy for 3 to 10 years, depending on the type you have. Once it expires, your doctor will need to take it out. You can have the IUD removed before the expiration date if you want to get pregnant.

Breast Exam (Mammogram)

An X-ray imaging to detect for presence of tumor or lump in breast.

STD Exam

If you are sexually active, getting tested for STDs is one of the most important things you can do to protect your health. Make sure you have an open and honest conversation about your sexual history and STD testing with your doctor and ask whether you should be tested for STDs.

BV Testing

A BV test can help you get diagnosed and treated so you can avoid these serious health problems. You may need testing if you have symptoms of BV. These include:

  • A gray or white vaginal discharge
  • A strong, fish-like odor, which may be worse after sex
  • Pain and/or itching in the vagina
  • Burning sensation when urinating

Chlamydia

Chlamydia is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). It is a bacterial infection spread through vaginal, oral, or anal sex with an infected person. Many people with chlamydia have no symptoms, so someone may spread the disease without even knowing they are infected. A chlamydia test looks for the presence of chlamydia bacteria in your body. The disease is easily treated with antibiotics. But if it’s not treated, chlamydia can cause serious complications, including infertility in women and swelling of the urethra in men.

Gonorrhea

Gonorrhea is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). It is a bacterial infection spread through vaginal, oral, or anal sex with an infected person. It can also be spread from a pregnant woman to her baby during childbirth. Gonorrhea can infect both men and women. It is most common in young people, aged 15–24.A gonorrhea test looks for the presence of gonorrhea bacteria in your body. The disease can be cured with antibiotics. But if it’s not treated, gonorrhea can lead to infertility and other serious health problems.

Syphilis (RPR)

Syphilis is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). It is a bacterial infection spread through vaginal, oral, or anal sex with an infected person. Syphilis develops in stages that can last for weeks, months, or even years. The stages may be separated by long periods of apparent good health. Syphilis tests can help diagnose syphilis in the early stages of infection, when the disease is easiest to treat.

Trichomonas

A sexually transmitted infection caused by a parasite. This may cause foul-smelling vaginal discharge in women and no symptoms in men. Trichomoniasis can be treated with medication and taking proper self- care.

Pelvic Inflammatory Disease

An infection of the female reproductive organs including uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, and cervix. This causes pelvic pain, vaginal discharge and sometimes with fever. Treatment includes a combination of antibiotics.

Human Papillomavirus Test (HPV)

A group of viruses that infect the skin or moist areas of the body. This results in warts on various parts of the body. In some cases medications are directly applied on the lesions will eliminate the warts. HPV vaccination would be recommended to prevent future infections, but is not a cure.

Herpes

Herpes is a skin infection caused by the herpes simplex virus, known as HSV. HSV causes painful blisters or sores in different parts of the body. An HSV test looks for the presence of the virus in your body. While there is no cure for herpes, there are medicines that can help manage the condition.

Hepatitis B

A serious infection of the liver caused by hepatitis B virus (HBV). Chronic form of the infection is not curable, but HBV is preventable by vaccination.

Hepatitis C

A viral infection that causes inflammation of liver that leads to liver inflammation. Although no vaccine for hepatitis C is available. Medicines can cure most cases of hepatitis C. A combination of antiviral medications are prescribed depending on the genotype of the virus, viral load and presence of any liver damage.

Hepatitis D

Hepatitis D is an inflammation of the liver caused by the hepatitis D virus (HDV), which requires HBV for its replication. Hepatitis D infection cannot occur in the absence of hepatitis B virus. HDV-HBV co-infection is considered the most severe form of chronic viral hepatitis due to more rapid progression towards hepatocellular carcinoma and liver-related death.

HIV Antibody and HIV Antigen

An HIV test shows whether you are infected with HIV (human immunodeficiency virus). HIV is a virus that attacks and destroys cells in the immune system. These cells protect your body against disease-causing germs, such as bacteria and viruses. If you lose too many immune cells, your body will have trouble fighting off infections and other diseases.

Antibody Test: This test looks for HIV antibodies in your blood or saliva. Your immune system makes antibodies when you are exposed to bacteria or viruses, like HIV. An HIV antibody test can determine if you have HIV from 3–12 weeks after infection. That’s because it can take a few weeks or longer for your immune system to make antibodies to HIV. You may be able to do an HIV antibody test in the privacy of your home. Ask your health care provider about at-home HIV test kits.

HIV Antigen Test: This test looks for HIV antibodies and antigens in the blood. An antigen is a part of a virus that triggers an immune response. If you’ve been exposed to HIV, antigens will show up in your blood before HIV antibodies are made. This test can usually find HIV within 2–6 weeks of infection. The HIV antibody/antigen test is one of the most common types of HIV tests..

Menopause

A natural process of aging. The stage when the ovaries completely stop producing reproductive hormones, and there are no monthly periods for consecutive twelve months. No specific medical treatment is necessary. Treatments are aimed at reducing the signs and symptoms.

Osteoporosis

Women are at a greater risk of developing osteoporosis because of the rapid decline in oestrogen levels during menopause. When oestrogen levels decrease, bones lose calcium and other minerals at a much faster rate. As a result a bone loss of approximately 2% per year occurs for several years after menopause. Treatment aims to slow or stop bone loss, and to improve bone density. Medications help improve bone density.

Women and Heart Disease

Women present heart problems differently than men, and since heart disease is the leading cause of death in American women, research on better diagnosis and treatment is vital. Researching conditions such as vascular stiffness, heart valve disease during pregnancy, heart attacks that occur without obstructed coronary arteries, and autoimmune diseases and how they specifically affect the hearts of women will help develop new preventions and treatments.
