Women’s health is an internal medicine subspecialty that provides comprehensive medical care for people with female reproductive organs. Both sexes experience similar health problems, but people with vaginas and breasts are more susceptible to certain conditions, like cervical cancer, breast cancer, and urinary incontinence.
Visiting the team at I40First for regular women’s health checkups provides an easy and effective way to protect your health and peace of mind.
The team at I40First offers various women’s health services, including:
A Pap smear is a preventive screening measure that determines your risk of cervical cancer. During a Pap smear, your I40First provider collects a sample of cells from your cervix with a cotton swab. Then, they send your sample to a lab that analyzes it for the presence of precancerous or cancerous cells.
During a breast exam, your I40First provider looks at your breasts and nipples to assess their general appearance. They also feel your breasts, checking for lumps or bumps. If the team discovers anything unusual, they can refer you to a nearby radiology facility for a mammogram.
Lab tests analyze a sample of your blood, urine, or saliva to gain insights into your health. At I40First, the team uses lab tests to identify underlying medical issues, like diabetes, heart disease, and kidney disease.
Many menopausal women experience symptoms like hot flashes, mood swings, and low libido. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT), provides a safe and effective way to reduce uncomfortable side effects and restore your body to balance.
Platelet-rich plasma uses growth factors in your blood (called platelets) to enhance your body’s natural healing process. As a woman, you might benefit from platelet-rich plasma if you experience urinary incontinence or low libido.
The team at I40First recommends visiting a women’s health specialist at least once a year, even if you feel well. Many chronic health problems don’t present obvious symptoms immediately. Routine visits to I40First can alert you early on when they’re most responsive to treatment.
