Well Woman services for the prevention of breast and gynecological disease.
To help patients prevent breast and gynecological diseases, Plaza OB/GYN in Houston offers a thorough Well Woman exam. These exams are administered annually and given to identify gynecological conditions in their early stages. Our wellness exams help prevent any condition from worsening and are one of the best ways women can protect their health.
Routine check-ups and testing are critical to a woman’s well being. Our doctors are knowledgeable on all the latest recommendations from the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology to ensure every patient receives premier care and attention.
What to Expect from a Well Woman Exam
Well Woman exams are first encouraged in a young lady’s mid to late teens. Once a woman reaches the stages of early adulthood, exams should be administered yearly. Our Well Woman exam focuses on the breast and pelvic areas, with additional testing when necessary. Some of the questions women can expect during the examination process include:
- General lifestyle choices
- Sexual habits
- Menstrual health
- Nutrition habits
- Exercise routine
- Smoking and alcohol consumption
Women can expect their breast and pelvic areas to be examined for any abnormalities. Although mild discomfort can be felt, our doctors take special care to make the examination as painless as possible. To ensure patient privacy, only the OB/GYN doctor and appropriate nurse will be in the room during administration of the exams.
