Women's Wellness Q & A

What is a well-woman exam?

A well-woman exam is an annual visit focused on addressing your reproductive health and wellness. These visits are also an opportunity to express any concerns you have, ask questions about the latest treatment options, and learn how to balance your physical, emotional, and spiritual wellness. 

The data collected during your well-woman exams helps shape your medical record, an important set of documents that track your health over time. A comprehensive medical record can play an important role in diagnosing disease or evaluating how well a treatment plan is working. 

What happens during a well-woman exam?

Your exam begins with a discussion about your current health and lifestyle. A breast exam follows to check for tissue abnormalities. You’ll also receive a pelvic exam, which gives Dr. Cedeno a chance to check your vagina, cervix, and external tissues for any abnormal changes. 

Depending on your age, a Pap smear is part of the pelvic exam. This powerful screening tool is the best way to detect cervical cancer in the earliest stages when treatment is most effective. The process is simple, and it takes Dr. Cedeno just seconds to gather a small sample of cells from your cervix to send to the lab for microscopic examination. 

What issues can I discuss during a well-woman exam?

Your annual women’s wellness visit is your chance to bring up anything about which you have questions or concerns. Some of the topics you might discuss include:

  • Birth control
  • Fertility preparation
  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Pelvic pain
  • Screening for sexually transmitted disease
  • Sexual health
  • Stress management
  • Symptoms of menopause

If you’re concerned about vaginal changes that make sex less enjoyable, ask Dr. Cedeno about TempSure Vitalia treatments. This nonsurgical treatment option can thicken your vaginal walls, improve vaginal moisture levels, and improve the appearance of your vulva to help you have a more fulfilling sexual connection.
