What are wellness visits?

Wellness visits, often called well woman exams, are medical appointments focused on delivering the preventive care women need throughout life. Reproductive health is the central focus during women’s wellness visits, but Carrie also offers guidance on general health issues that women face, like heart disease, high blood pressure, and mental health. 

Routine well woman exams usually include a pelvic exam, providing practitioners the chance to visually inspect your vaginal and cervical tissues, as well as external genitalia. PAP smear testing screens for signs of cervical cancer, and can detect precancerous changes that facilitate early treatment. 

How can wellness visits enhance my quality of life?

The screening benefits of women’s wellness visits are a powerful tool in detecting problems in the earliest possible stages when treatment efforts are often most effective. They are also an opportunity to discuss areas of concern with your practitioner or ask questions about health and wellness topics. 

Some of the issues you might choose to discuss during women’s wellness visits include:

  • Pelvic pain
  • Abnormal bleeding
  • Sexual fulfillment or enjoyment
  • Fertility planning
  • Contraception management (birth control)
  • Symptoms of gynecologic issues
  • Managing menopause
  • Sexual health

Carrie is happy to help you find ways to improve your life through nutrition, sleep quality, mental health support, and so much more. Women’s wellness visits are highly individualized to meet your specific needs and challenges. 

How often should I come in for wellness visits?

Most women benefit from coming in for annual wellness visits. This schedule allows Carrie to perform the screenings needed to detect areas of concern before they develop into serious problems. 

Young women can begin working with Carrie during their teenage years. These visits don’t usually include pelvic exams or PAP testing unless medically necessary. They focus on developing a trusting bond between the patient and practitioner. 

If you need treatment for specific women’s health issues, you might come to the office more frequently until your condition improves. You can then return to annual wellness visits.  

If you’re ready to book an appointment, call the office during normal business hours. Online booking is also available, allowing you to set up your visit any time of day.
