Make the most of your well-woman visit
Be sure to address any questions or concerns that you may have about your body, sexual activity, or family history with your provider. There is no reason to be embarrassed about any questions that you may have. Your provider is there to help you and to ensure that you are happy and healthy.
If you are experiencing domestic violence or relationship violence of any kind, alert your provider. They are trained to provide help and options for getting you help and getting you out of dangerous situations. Many providers will discreetly ask if you need help or assistance and will help you if you need it.
It is important to find a provider that you like, respect, and trust. You should be comfortable enough to tell them about any questions or concerns that you may have. They are there to ensure not only your reproductive health, but they can also address mental health concerns, nutrition and exercise, and bodily changes throughout your life.
If you have never had a well-woman exam before, there is no time like the present! We will ensure that you have a positive experience and that you feel comfortable throughout your visit.
