Women's Health Care Q & A

What is women’s health care?

Women’s health care is the category of medicine dedicated to the distinct aspects of women’s wellness. This includes services pertaining to the health and wellness of the female sexual and reproductive systems, as well as women’s hormones and breast health. Some conditions that affect both men and women affect women at disproportionately high rates.

Dr. Mohtashami provides women’s health care services, including well-woman checkups. Well-woman checkups are not the same as an annual physical, but you should still get one per year to brush up on these parts of your health and access any services you may need concerning them. 

Which services does women’s health care cover?

Women’s health covers diagnostic and treatment services relating to your sexual, reproductive, and hormonal health. Even if you don’t experience symptoms like pelvic pain, abnormal bleeding, or urinary incontinence, Dr. Mohtashami can screen you for various health complications or make a diagnosis during your annual women’s exams. 

During your visits for women’s health, you can access services such as:

  • Birth control management
  • Breast cancer screenings and mammograms
  • Pap smears
  • Colposcopy
  • Hormone treatments for menopause symptoms
  • Pelvic examinations
  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing and treatment
  • Bone density testing
  • Childbirth preparation

Dr. Mohtashami also recommends and conducts treatments for various conditions that impact women’s health, including uterine fibroids, endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

What happens during a well-woman checkup?

When you come in for your well-woman checkups with Dr. Mohtashami, you have an idea of what to expect after your first few visits. Some checkups of this sort include age- or risk-based tests, while other steps remain constant with every visit. 

During your next well-woman checkup with Dr. Mohtashami, she may include:

  • Pelvic examination
  • Pap smear
  • Breast exam
  • Possible blood tests

After all examinations and tests during your visit, you may ask Dr. Mohtashami questions about your sexual and reproductive health and wellness. She follows up with you about any results she finds and can recommend any necessary treatments you may need. She might also recommend new or different vitamins, diet changes, or visits to reproductive health specialists.
