5 Reasons Why Your Annual Well-Woman Exam So Important
Looking for a doctor with whom you can feel 100% comfortable and trust to provide high-quality healthcare at every stage of your life? Schedule a consultation for Women’s Health. We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship.
The doctors at Sydney Premier Medical & Health Centre offer Women’s health checks, and are dedicated to managing health issues thoroughly in a comfortable confidential setting.
Consultations may cover family planning, contraceptive advice, pregnancy care, fertility advice, health screening including pap smears, breast examinations & sexual health screening.
It is recommended that all women aged 18 and over attend their GP every 2 years for a Women’s Health Check.
Please ensure you advise our friendly receptionist if you require a pap smear or have several medical conditions to discuss with the doctor so we may allow for a longer consultation.
This test involves taking a small sample of cells from the cervix to be tested for cell changes. While a little uncomfortable, the pap test is quick and simple, and allows for the detection of cell changes which can then be treated. All women who have ever been sexually active in their lifetimes need to have regular pap tests, even if they are no longer sexually active. Women are generally screened from the ages of 18 through to age 70. Please make a long appointment for a pap smear and when booking online please write in the comments box that it is for a pap smear so that the front staff can book a long appointment accordingly.
During a Women's Health Check, a breast examination is also conducted. Once women turn 50 years of age, mammogram screening is also arranged at this time.
In women who feel that it is relevant to them, sexually transmitted disease screening can be conducted during the consultation. As STDs can occur without the woman experiencing symptoms, screening is offered as part of a women's health check, as is a discussion about safe sex practices.
Women are also invited to discuss other matters that may be of concern to them. These may include :
