Women's Health Q & A

Why are annual well-woman exams important for your health?

A comprehensive well-woman exam focuses on preventive health care. During a yearly exam, your doctor at Night and Day Medical checks for subtle signs of potential problems, catching changes at an early stage.

With early diagnosis and treatment, you can prevent chronic health conditions and treat serious illnesses before they turn into a significant threat.

A well-woman exam also gives you time to talk to your doctor. This is your opportunity to ask questions and discuss any concerns affecting your life, whether the topic is your sex life, weight loss, or dealing with depression or anxiety.

What should you expect during a well-woman exam?

Your doctor reviews your medical history, checks your weight, blood pressure, and heart rate, and performs a complete physical exam. Routine labs tests are run, along with specialized tests as needed.

During a well-woman exam, you may receive a breast and pelvic exam, birth control, or testing for sexually transmitted diseases. Your doctor provides vaccinations as needed for your age and stage of life. You can also count on referrals if it’s time for health screenings, such as a mammogram or colonoscopy.

The team at Night and Day Medical screens for women’s health concerns such as:

  • Breast cancer
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Osteoporosis
  • Thyroid function

What should women know about heart disease?

Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the leading cause of death among women. That’s why your doctor at Night and Day Medical evaluates your heart health, offers lifestyle and medical treatments, and provides ongoing support when you need advanced cardiology care.

Preventing cardiovascular disease and promoting your overall health is the reason your well-woman exam includes screening for conditions that increase your risk for heart disease such as:

  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Obesity
  • Smoking
