Annual and Preventative exams
Valley Health Physician Alliance is pleased to offer annual and preventative gynecological exams. Annual exams typically include a Pap smear, breast and pelvic exams and urine sample collection. Your doctor may also order blood tests if necessary. These tests help doctors determine the presence of STDs or other infections and are a key step in the early detection of more serious diseases, like cancer.
- Pap smear: A screening procedure used to detect cancerous or precancerous cells in the cervix or colon. Doctors use a small brush to remove cells from the surface of the cervix to test under a microscope. Abnormal cells may suggest the presence of cervical cancer or that the patient is at risk for developing cancer in the future.
If your doctor detects precancerous cells, they will help you come up with preventive measures to slow the progression.
Obstetrics and gynecology doctors typically recommend women have their first Pap smear by age 21. Women should typically repeat this test every 3-5 years. Certain risk factors, like a family history of cervical cancer, may suggest more frequent testing.
- STD Testing: Sexually transmitted diseases get passed through intimate contact. They can endanger your reproductive health, and in some cases, your overall well-being. The good news is that with early detection, most patients can be treated quickly and effectively.
Endometriosis affects millions of women in the United States. This painful, chronic condition occurs when uterine tissue grows outside the walls of the uterus and surrounding reproductive organs and tissues. Our OB/GYNs can diagnose endometriosis and provide advanced treatments.
At Valley Health, we know that family planning is an individual and personal choice. Our doctors can help educate you on the best forms of birth control to prevent pregnancy and STDs. Everyone’s bodies respond differently to types of birth control. Your doctor can help you figure out what method of birth control is right for you.
Incontinence is the loss of bladder control that often accompanies ages or other changes in the body, like pregnancy. Despite the discomfort that can come with talking about and experiencing incontinence, it is extremely common.
Our physicians can help develop a treatment plan that is right for you, based on your organ function.
