Healthy Living

Live Well, Be Well!

At Comprehensive Women’s Health, we know that the better we take care of ourselves, the better our chances are of avoiding serious health problems down the line. Eating a healthy diet, consistently getting a good night’s sleep, exercising on a regular basis, and dedicating time in the day just for yourself are all important practices for wellness. Maintaining regular check-ups with your health care providers is also key. Managing all of this is easier said than done, but the habits you develop today are what shape your tomorrow. Make a commitment to your health!

The team at Comprehensive Women’s Health works to provide our patients with information on health and wellness that not only educates, but also supports and inspires. Whether it’s home self-exam tutorials, learning when antibiotics are needed and when they should be avoided, nutrition advice or pre- and post-surgical recommendations, you will find it here.

Your Annual Exam

An annual gynecologic exam is an important routine checkup to ensure that you’re healthy inside and out. Your CWH annual exam is among the most important things you can do for your wellness and peace of mind. The well visit can help detect certain health problems, diagnose needed treatment, as well as prevent future illnesses. Your annual exam is a critical part of health and wellness through every stage of your life.

What to expect during your CWH Annual Exam

Whatever your age, an annual GYN exam generally includes:

  • An assessment of your current health status
  • A breast exam to check for lumps, skin changes or nipple discharge
  • A pelvic exam to check your vulva, vagina, cervix, uterus, ovaries, rectum and pelvis
  • A Pap test to screen for cervical cancer (A Pap smear may or may not be recommended annually, depending upon your specific situation)

Your annual exam also includes information on vaccines that are recommended based on age and risk factors. Comprehensive Women’s Health offers patients Tdap, and human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines.

Your provider may also refer you for your regular mammogram as part of your annual exam.

Testing for sexually transmitted infections may be recommended for sexually active adolescents and women.
