What happens during women’s health appointments?

Your women’s health specialist weighs you and assesses your body mass index (BMI). They check your pulse, blood pressure, and temperature if needed and review your medical history. Your provider asks questions about past diagnoses, symptoms, medications, lifestyle habits, mood, and more. 

During a women’s health exam, your specialist looks for potential signs of illnesses or diseases. They may complete a pelvic exam to examine your reproductive organs and take a cell sample from your cervix to screen for signs of cervical cancer. 

If you need other diagnostic tests, such as blood tests or imaging procedures, your Norwood Medical Associates provider completes them.

They offer treatments when needed to help you maintain superior women’s health with a low risk of medical problems.

When should I schedule women’s health exams?

Schedule well-woman exams yearly or more frequently if your provider suggests it. Call the Norwood Medical Associates office anytime you have concerns and questions about your health or develop unusual symptoms.
