Women's Health Q&A

What is women’s health?

Women's health refers to an area of medicine that focuses on the unique health needs and concerns of women throughout life. It encompasses a wide range of health issues, including reproductive health, breast health, menopause, sexual health, and mental health. 

Women’s health emphasizes the importance of preventive care, early detection, and management of health conditions that can affect women differently than men.

The women’s healthcare team at Washington Medical Clinic LLC works with you to help you make informed decisions about your healthcare and take control of your overall well-being.

What does women’s healthcare include?

Washington Medical Clinic LLC provides comprehensive women’s healthcare that includes the following:


Pelvic exams

A pelvic exam allows the team to identify abnormalities in the vulva, vagina, cervix, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and uterus.


Pap smears

During a pelvic exam, your provider may perform a Pap smear, which involves swabbing the cervix to collect cervical cells. The test screens for signs of cervical cancer.


Breast exams

A breast exam is a hands-on screening that checks for abnormal tissue and lumps in the breasts.


Contraception management

The team works with you to find the appropriate type of contraception for your healthcare needs and family planning goals. From oral contraception to intrauterine devices (IUDs), the team provides guidance and support to ensure safe and effective contraceptive management.


Prepregnancy management

Prepregnancy management and family planning can help you prepare for a healthy pregnancy by addressing preexisting health conditions and lifestyle factors, and discussing any potential risks or concerns before you conceive.

What health concerns do women face?
