Women’s Healthcare Q & A

What is women’s healthcare?

Women’s healthcare is an area of medical practice focused on addressing the health and wellness issues women face. While much of women’s health is centered on reproductive health, there are also numerous general health issues that women encounter at high rates. 

Heart health, depression, and certain forms of cancer are examples of health matters that both men and women face. Women interested in medical weight loss are welcome to ask about those services during their women’s health visit, often referred to as a well woman exam.


Which gynecological services are included in women’s healthcare?

The team at Primecare Family Practice is proud to offer the following gynecologic care services:

  • Pap smears
  • Mammograms
  • Breast exams
  • Contraception counseling and management
  • Birth control
  • Intrauterine device (IUD) and Nexplanon® placement

If your needs require specialized care, your provider helps you connect with a specialist who can deliver the appropriate diagnostic or treatment services. Your Primecare Family Practice provider remains in contact with your extended care team to ensure continuity of care once your specialized treatment concludes. 


What kinds of issues can I discuss during my women’s healthcare visits?

The best way to make the most of your women’s health visits is to be as open and honest with your provider as possible. No topic is off limits, and nothing you share is going to be a first for your practitioner, who is here to help you achieve the highest level of health possible. 

Some of the issues commonly discussed during well woman exams include:


  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Pelvic pain
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Low sex drive
  • Infertility
  • Sexual health
  • Abnormal discharge
  • Sexually transmitted disease prevention, screening, and treatment


Your provider works closely with you to determine the cause of any issues you’re experiencing and explains all available treatment options. There is never any pressure to choose one approach over another, and you’re encouraged to ask questions and express concerns as they arise.

Women’s health is best when the process is a collaboration between patient and practitioner.  When you’re ready to experience personalized, compassionate, and highly skilled women’s health services, the team at Primecare Family Practice is ready to deliver.
