Well-Woman Care

Request an Appointment

Wellness visits are also called annual exams or well-woman exams. They also help diagnose and treat vulvar, vaginal, uterine, or breast conditions. These visits are an essential part of taking care of your health.

Biological women need special exams and screenings throughout their lives to protect their overall health and wellness. The board-certified physicians at Pomona Valley Health Centers provide comprehensive women’s health services, including well-woman exams for all biological women beginning at age 18. These include a full physical exam, clinical breast exam, pelvic exam, pap smear, health screenings, blood tests, vaccinations, and education or counseling.

It’s crucial to make your well-woman care a priority, even if you feel healthy, because these services can help you prevent serious medical problems.

What to expect during well-woman exams

Ages 18-39

Well-woman exams include a pelvic exam and pap smear in addition to contraception, pregnancy, and cervical cancer screening. Your PVHC Premier Medicine family physician will also screen for obesity, diabetes, hypertension, and autoimmune diseases like lupus and arthritis.

Annual pelvic exams and pap smears are crucial for early detection and treatment of common conditions, including:

  • Adnexal masses
  • Fibroids
  • Infertility
  • Pelvic pain
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Polyps
  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD)
  • Vaginitis
  • Vulvovaginal pain syndromes

Ages 40-64

It’s common for biological women in this age group to begin experiencing menstrual changes associated with perimenopause and menopause. Menopause causes hormone levels to drop, which can directly affect bone density. That’s why it’s important to monitor hormone levels and overall wellness during this stage. Other standard health screenings include:

  • Bone density
  • Cholesterol
  • Colorectal cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Thyroid

For biological women over 40, we also provide screening mammograms. If precancerous lesions are found, we offer preliminary treatment and make a referral to a PVHMC Premier Medicine specialist for further testing and/or treatment.

Ages 65+

Older women should continue seeing their PVHC Premier Family physician each year to promote successful aging and learn about the prevention of diseases. In addition to their annual well-woman exam, women in this age group should be monitored for the following conditions:

  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Certain types of cancers (e.g., ovarian, cervical, and skin)
  • Chronic lower respiratory disease
  • Hypertension
  • Hypertriglyceridemia
  • Obesity
  • Osteoporosis
  • Sexual or physical abuse
  • Unintentional injuries (accidents)

From routine screening and pregnancy to menopause and beyond, we offer a more comprehensive coverage beyond regular OBGYN care. You deserve excellent women’s health services from a skilled family doctor that knows your entire health history. PVHC Family Medicine physicians are passionate about education and providing any guidance, resources, or information you need to make the best decisions about your health through every stage of your life.
