Well Woman Exam & Contraception Q & A

What happens during a well-woman exam?

A health exam performed by a gynecologist each year will generally include a breast and pelvic exam as well as a pap smear. These important exams are known as a well-woman exam. Patients can typically expect a(n):

  • overall physical exam
  • update of medical history in addition to work and life activities
  • review of past concerns and treatments
  • update to medications and supplements
  • application of necessary immunizations
  • pap smear and/or pelvic exam
  • breast exam
  • evaluation of necessary screening tests, like a mammogram

What happens if a problem is discovered?

During the assessment, if a medical illness or condition is found by the gynecologist, several treatments and options can be suggested. More serious treatments will usually begin that same day and treatment may be a continuing process. In other instances, treatment could be as simple as a prescription. Some illnesses are only found during a pap smear. If the results show a problem, the gynecologist will thoroughly go over the results and any treatment needed with the patient. Methods of Contraception

What is birth control? 

Oral contraceptives or birth control pills, skin patches, Depo Shot, are just a few types of Birth Control methods used by women to prevent pregnancy. The hormones progestin and estrogen are the active ingredients in birth control pills. These hormones stop ovulation from occurring and alter the lining of the uterus, or endometrium, to prevent pregnancy in addition to changing the mucus at the opening of the cervix to block the entrance of sperm. Birth control pills can also be used by gynecologists to help women who are experiencing irregular or painful menstrual periods, a condition known as premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), and to treat acne.

What is an IUD?

An intrauterine device (IUD) is a soft, plastic device which also works to prevent pregnancy and is inserted into the uterus. In most situations, IUDs work by either administering a small amount of progestin levonorgestrel or it is surrounded by a copper coil, which is a natural spermicide.
