Also called gynecological exams or annual exams, well-woman visits are a fundamental part of maintaining your reproductive health. Dr. Tajzoy offers well-woman exams for women in all phases of life, from teenagers preparing for their first gynecological visit to adults transitioning through menopause.
Well-woman exams allow Dr. Tajzoy to monitor your health, making it easier for him to diagnose and treat any issues as early as possible. You can ask questions and address any concerns you may have, such as abnormal bleeding or painful sex.
In addition to performing recommended screenings, evaluations, and counseling, these visits provide an excellent opportunity to establish a strong doctor-patient relationship.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends teenage girls have their first well-woman exam between the ages of 13-15. Then, you should schedule an exam once a year after that. Even if you’ve already gone through menopause, it’s important to continue seeing Dr. Tajzoy for well-woman exams.
First, Dr. Tajzoy performs a physical exam and reviews your medical history. He checks your breasts for abnormal growths and asks questions about your reproductive health.
Dr. Tajzoy provides personalized care, tailoring your well-woman visit to your unique needs. Depending on your age and medical history, he may perform recommended screening tests and counseling services, such as:
If you’re under age 21, your visit may simply include a physical exam and discussion of your menstrual cycles. Women usually start getting Pap smears and pelvic exams at age 21.
During a Pap smear and pelvic exam, Dr. Tajzoy inserts a speculum into your vagina and gently swabs your cervix to collect a sample of cells. He sends this sample to a lab that checks the cells for abnormal changes that may indicate pre-cancerous growths on your cervix.
