Women's Health Q & A

What does women’s health care mean?

Women’s health care covers the health needs of females for their whole lives. It focuses on the female reproductive system, including the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, vagina, and vulva. At Clinica Latina, experienced specialists offer women’s health care services for women of all ages.


What happens during women’s health appointments?

Women’s health care at Clinica Latina includes well-woman exams as well as diagnosis and treatment of women’s health problems. Women are more prone to conditions like breast cancer, hypothyroidism, and urinary tract infections (UTIs) and also have many female-specific health concerns. Women’s health care covers them all, including:

Well-woman exams

Well-woman exams are yearly physical exams focusing on preventive care and overall health. 

You’ll have an external and internal exam as well as blood work and other screening tests to check for the early signs of disease. Catching issues early makes them far easier to treat.

Cancer screening is an important aspect of well-woman exams. All women need Pap smears, a simple test that involves swabbing your cervix to check for human papillomavirus (HPV) and cervical cancer. Breast cancer screening options include breast exams, ultrasounds, and mammograms.

Depending on your lifestyle, sexual habits, and history, you may need sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing during your well-woman exams. 

Your well-woman exam also includes contraception services. You can choose the contraceptive method best for your lifestyle and goals. Two popular options are birth control pills and three-month birth control injections. If you have an intrauterine device (IUD) or birth control implant, you can have it removed if desired. 

Diagnosis and treatment

Diagnosis and treatment of women’s health issues aren’t limited to well-woman exams. If you’re struggling with symptoms like severe cramps, irregular periods, or unusual vaginal discharge, or if you suspect you’re pregnant, you can schedule an appointment anytime. 

Some of the conditions Clinica Latina diagnoses and treats are ovarian cysts, yeast infections, UTIs, bacterial vaginosis, and STDs, along with many other issues. 

Women’s health care covers everything you need to be healthy. 


How often do I need women’s health care?

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommends scheduling a girl’s first women’s health-specific appointment at age 13-15. Then, you’ll need annual wellness exams as well as additional visits if you have new issues.
