Women’s health encompasses medical evaluations and treatment when needed to help you prevent or overcome common women’s health concerns. The Complete Rural Medicine team recommends that you see them regularly to detect women’s health issues before problems might turn serious.
Common medical problems many women may face at some point during their lifetime include:
Early detection and treatment with the help of the Complete Rural Medicine specialists are the best ways to avoid bothersome symptoms and debilitating complications.
During women’s health checkups at Complete Rural Medicine, friendly providers welcome you and often complete the following:
Your women’s health specialist weighs you and checks your blood pressure, pulse, and other vital signs.
During a medical history review, your Complete Rural Medicine provider asks questions about your personal and family medical history, medications, lifestyle habits, and symptoms you might have.
Your women’s health specialist completes a physical exam to evaluate your overall health and wellness. They check your breathing, heartbeat, eyes, ears, throat, neck, abdomen, and reflexes. Your specialist offers a pelvic exam to evaluate your reproductive organs, along with a Pap test if needed to screen for signs of cervical cancer or other health issues.
Your specialist may order diagnostic tests that include tissue swabs, urine testing, blood tests, heart function tests, lung function tests, allergy testing, or STD testing. You may need a mammogram, bone density scan, or other imaging procedures.
If you need treatment, a Complete Rural Medicine provider tailors a plan just for you. They offer further diagnostic testing, immunizations, birth control, prescription medications, minor procedures, and specialist referrals when needed.
It’s usually a good idea to schedule women’s health checkups each year, or more often if your specialist recommends it because of a medical problem or disease risk factors. See your Complete Rural Medicine provider if you have questions about your health or develop alarming symptoms.
