Why is women’s health important?

Women’s health care focuses on people with female reproductive organs. Men and women experience many of the same health problems, but a woman’s reproductive organs present unique risks. 

For example, women are at risk of gestational diabetes and cervical cancer, while men are at risk of prostate cancer and low testosterone.

Routine women’s health checkups at Innovative Medical Group provide peace of mind and let you address sex-specific health problems before they worsen. 

What services does women’s health include?

Innovative Medical Group offers various women’s health services, including:

Pap smears

A Pap smear screens for cervical cancer. Your Innovative Medical Group provider collects a cell sample from your cervix and sends it to a nearby lab for analysis. Women ages 21-29 should get a Pap smear every three years; women 29 and older should get one every five years. 

Well-woman exams

A well-woman exam assesses your general well-being from head to toe. It includes a Pap smear, breast exam, physical exam, and lab work, including blood tests and urinalysis. 

Family planning

Family planning educates you about birth control. Your provider can make personalized birth control recommendations if you’re sexually active and don’t want to get pregnant. They might prescribe oral birth control or an intrauterine device (IUD), depending on your needs. 

Prenatal care

Prenatal care is a branch of women’s health focused on women who are expecting. It includes routine checkups, nutrition education, and lifestyle guidance to support healthy pregnancies.

Treatment of menopausal symptoms

Menopause triggers symptoms such as hot flashes, fatigue, and pain during sex. Innovative Medical Group works with middle-aged women to manage side effects and offer treatments like hormone replacement therapy, medically supervised weight loss, and nutrition education.

Mammogram referrals

A mammogram is a breast X-ray that screens for breast cancer. Innovative Medical Group doesn’t have a mammogram machine on-site but can refer you to a nearby radiology facility. 

Should I schedule routine women’s health screenings?

Innovative Medical Group encourages all women to schedule a women’s health screening at least once a year. Many chronic illnesses, like diabetes and high blood pressure, develop slowly and don’t present obvious symptoms.

Annual checkups protect your health, allow you to build a relationship with your doctor, and help you age gracefully.
