Women's Health Q&A
What is women’s health?
Women’s health involves the prevention, diagnosis, management, and treatment of conditions unique to or common among women. Examples include:
- Pregnancy and breastfeeding
- Menopause and premenstrual syndrome
- Gynecological conditions
- Breast and cervical cancers
- Heart problems
- Depression and anxiety
- Sexually transmitted diseases or infertility
- Urinary tract infections
Many of these health concerns are highly treatable when caught early, which is why routine screening and women’s wellness exams are crucial for optimal health.
What should I expect during a women’s health exam?
When you arrive for a women’s health exam at Texas Primary Care Specialists, Dr. Acharya checks your weight, pulse, and blood pressure. The team reviews your medical history and health concerns and completes a physical exam.
Your exam might include a pelvic exam and Pap smear. During a pelvic exam, Dr. Acharya evaluates your internal female organs to make sure they appear normal.
A speculum is inserted into the vagina to take a sample of cervical cells. Dr. Acharya sends the cells to a lab for analysis to screen you for cervical cancer or human papillomavirus (HPV), a common sexually transmitted disease.
Dr. Acharya may also check your breasts for signs of breast cancer or recommend a mammogram. If you’re interested in birth control to prevent pregnancy, the team reviews your options to find a solution that best matches your needs.
Which treatment might I require?
Based on the results of your women's health exam, the Texas Primary Care Specialists team may recommend more treatment. If you have a gynecological or other health condition, you might require:
- Further gynecological testing, such as a biopsy
- Minimally invasive surgery
- Medications for a gynecological condition or chronic disease
- Hormone replacement therapy for menopause symptoms
- Infertility treatments
- Referral to a specialist
Dr. Acharya may suggest making lifestyle changes to reduce your risk of developing a chronic disease.
How often should I schedule a women’s wellness exam?
Dr. Acharya lets you know how often to schedule a women’s health checkup and Pap smear based on your personalized health care needs. Scheduling a wellness exam every year is a good rule of thumb.
