  • Hormone imbalances

What happens during a well-woman exam?

During a well-woman exam at Bay Area Physicians for Women, you can expect the following:

Vital signs check

Your provider weighs you and checks your pulse, blood pressure, and other vital signs during this portion of a well-woman exam.

Medical history review

Your women’s health specialist reviews your medical history, including past diagnoses, family history of disease, medications you might take, and symptoms you may have.

Physical exam

During a physical exam, your OB/GYN provider evaluates your eyes, ears, throat, neck, breathing, heartbeat, reflexes, and more. They also complete a pelvic exam to evaluate your reproductive health, and a Pap test when needed to screen for signs of cervical cancer.

Diagnostic testing

In addition to Pap tests, your Bay Area Physicians for Women specialist also offers in-office urine testing, blood tests, heart-function testing, ultrasounds, bone-density scans, and more. 

Treatment

If you need treatment for a women’s health concern, your Bay Area Physicians for Women provider personalizes a plan just for you. They may recommend lifestyle changes, medications, further diagnostic testing, minimally invasive surgery, or treatment by another specialist. 

How often should I schedule well-woman exams?

Unless your OB/GYN provider recommends more frequent visits because of a medical problem, schedule well-woman exams at Bay Area Physicians for Women yearly. Call the office if you become pregnant, experience new or unusual symptoms, or have concerns about your health.
