Women's Health Q & A

What is women’s health?

Women’s health involves medical monitoring and treatment of women’s health conditions, such as:

  • Breast and cervical cancers
  • Pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • Gynecological conditions
  • Menopause symptoms
  • Low bone density or osteoporosis
  • Heart disease
  • Arthritis
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Sexually transmitted diseases

If you experience high blood pressure, high cholesterol, migraines, or other chronic conditions requiring treatment, the team of physicians at CFP Physicians Group is here for you. Early detection is crucial, as it drastically lowers your risk of serious complications.

What should I expect during a women’s health exam?

Your doctor lets you know how often to schedule a women’s health exam based on your age, medical history, and chronic disease risk factors. During your appointment, a provider reviews your medical history and symptoms, checks your blood pressure and other vital signs, and completes a physical exam.

Your physician may complete a Pap test, or Pap smear, by inserting a speculum into your vagina to collect a sample of cells from your cervix. They send the sample to a lab for analysis to screen for cervical cancer. Depending on your age and risk factors, you might also require a mammogram to screen for breast cancer or a DEXA bone scan to screen for low bone density.

If your provider suspects you have or are at risk of a chronic health condition, such as high cholesterol, thyroid disorders, or a gynecological condition, they might recommend a blood or imaging test to find out for sure.

What happens after a women’s health exam?

If you have a medical condition requiring treatment, your physician reviews options with you, which might include:

  • Dietary changes
  • Weight loss
  • Additional healthy lifestyle habits
  • Supplements
  • Medications
  • Birth control
  • Additional testing
  • Specialist referrals

If you have a severe health problem, such as a heart condition, cancer, or an infectious disease, the providers at CFP Physicians Group may refer you to a qualified specialist in your area. 

Optional aesthetics treatments you can choose from at CFP Physicians Group include BOTOX®, chemical peels, facials, and PCA skincare products.
