What is a well-woman exam?
A well-woman exam is a comprehensive evaluation of your overall health and wellness and should occur every year.
Yakov Levy MD PC takes a personalized approach to care and considers your well-woman exam an important tool that not only evaluates your general health but also may help prevent more serious health issues.
During the well-woman exam, your OB/GYN asks detailed questions about your gynecological, sexual, and medical history. They also review the types of medications and supplements you take and perform a physical, pelvic, and breast exam.
Depending on your age and health risk, the team at Yakov Levy MD PC may also perform a Pap test during your well-woman exam to screen for cervical cancer or a human papillomavirus (HPV) screen. The OB/GYN practice also offers sexually transmitted disease (STD) tests and hormone testing.
After the exam, your OB/GYN spends time talking to you about your health and offers specific recommendations to maintain or improve overall wellness and well-being.
Does a yearly gynecology exam include contraception counseling?
Yes, the gynecology services at Yakov Levy MD PC include contraception, also called birth control, of which you can discuss during your well-woman exam. The patient-centered practice offers many contraception options, including:
