Women's Health Q&A

What is women’s health?

Women’s health includes all of the care, screenings, and services you need to stay healthy or become healthier. Your risk for various diseases and conditions goes up as you age, but there are also conditions that affect women specifically or in different ways than men. 

Which services does women’s health include?

Germantown Pediatric and Family Medicine LLC offers a range of services dedicated to helping women maintain or improve their health at any age. At the office, you can get routine women’s health services, including:

Pap smears

Pap smears are tests for cervical cancer and cell changes to the cervix. These happen once every few years after you turn 25. 

Breast exams

Breast exams check for lumps in the breast tissue, which could be a sign of breast cancer. Women’s health includes breast health, and you start getting breast cancer screening tests called mammograms after you turn 40. 

Birth control management

Hormonal birth control works as a contraceptive but can also regulate your periods and period symptoms. Germantown Pediatric and Family Medicine LLC helps you choose a birth control option that works for you. 

Other services within women’s health treat conditions like endometriosis or polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), support your transition into menopause, or help with infertility. 

What can I do to improve my health at home?

During your women’s health visits at Germantown Pediatric and Family Medicine LLC, the team evaluates your lifestyle, behaviors, and overall health. They can help you make changes to improve your health and possibly extend your lifespan, including:

  • Getting more exercise
  • Stopping smoking, drinking, or illicit drug use
  • Reducing stress
  • Coming in for health screenings
  • Staying up-to-date on vaccinations
