Women's Wellness Q & A

How does a well-woman exam support women’s wellness?

A well-woman exam is an annual checkup that focuses on women’s health needs; specifically, the needs revolving around the female reproductive system. Well-woman exams create the foundation of your health and wellness. 

Your well-woman exams include the screenings needed to preserve your health. Those needs shift and change as you move through the phases of life, and your well-woman exams also evolve to meet your current circumstances. 

For example, a woman in her 20s receives a Pap smear to screen for signs of cervical cancer and a breast exam to check for tissue abnormalities. She might discuss birth control and STD screenings during her visit, or ask how to best prepare her body for pregnancy and childbirth. 

A woman in her early 50s might discuss changes brought on by menopause. She may have concerns about how to maintain a strong sexual connection with her partner, and might also want to learn more about stress management. 

Regardless of where you are in life, your well-woman exam is an opportunity to support optimal health and wellness. 

What if I experience gynecologic symptoms?

The team at Premier Health & Wellness has the training and experience needed to address the full scope of gynecology care. If you notice troubling symptoms or changes, simply book a visit for a full diagnostic workup. 

Some common gynecologic issues include:

  • Endometriosis
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Infertility
  • Menopause
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Gynecologic cancer
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Abnormal bleeding

There is a treatment path to address all of these needs, and that process begins with a diagnostic exam. In some cases, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can resolve gynecologic symptoms. 

Are there treatments for chronic pain?

Chronic pain is a concern for many women. After significant research, the leadership at Premier Health & Wellness decided to offer Ondamed™, a type of therapy that uses pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) and biofeedback to relieve pain. 

These noninvasive treatments stimulate tissues without the need for surgery or lasers. The process boosts cellular function, relieves pain, and has the added benefit of promoting relaxation. 

Treatments require no advance preparation or recovery time and take just 30 minutes. You emerge feeling refreshed and relaxed with improved cognitive function and less pain.
