What happens during a women’s wellness exam?

When you arrive at AFM Healthcare for a women’s wellness examination, friendly staff members greet you and complete the following:

Vital sign check

Your provider checks your pulse, body weight, blood pressure, and other vital signs to screen for disease risk factors.

Medical history review

AFM Healthcare specialists review your medical history to ensure you receive proper care. They ask questions about your personal and family medical history, past diagnoses, medications you might take, and symptoms you may experience.

Physical examination

During a women’s health examination, your provider evaluates your eyes, ears, throat, breathing, heartbeat, reflexes, and more. 

They might complete a pelvic exam, including a Pap test to screen for signs of cervical cancer. During this test, your doctor inserts a speculum into your vagina to dilate it and takes a sample of cervical cells. They send the sample to a lab for analysis.

A breast exam or referral for a mammogram helps your primary care specialist screen for early signs of breast cancer. They answer questions and concerns you might have about your health and disease risk factors.

Diagnostic testing and treatment

In some cases, your women’s health specialist might recommend you undergo diagnostic testing or treatment. They may suggest a urine test, blood or stool test, asthma or allergy testing, electrocardiogram (EKG), STD testing, X-rays, ultrasound, or other diagnostic imaging procedures.

Some of the numerous women’s health treatments available at AFM Healthcare include medication management, birth control, hormone replacement therapy, medical weight loss, nutrition and supplement counseling, fertility planning, menopause symptom relief, and much more.
