Well Woman Exams Q&A

What are well woman visits?

Well woman visits are exams geared specifically to the health needs of women. Rather than visiting the doctor when you're ill, a well visit occurs when you're feeling fine, and includes many of the same evaluations and tests as a regular physical exam. The difference between having a physical with a primary care physician and having a well woman visit with an ob-gyn is that ob-gyn doctors specialize in women's health issues, which means they can provide the tests and health screenings a woman needs to stay as healthy as possible at every age. Plus, when care is needed, Dr. Bruksch is skilled in the latest techniques for treating even complex medical issues.

What happens during a well woman visit?

During your office visit, your weight and blood pressure will be recorded and Dr. Bruksch will ask you questions about your period, any abnormal bleeding issues or other abnormal symptoms, and perform a clinical breast exam. For older women, he'll ask about menopausal symptoms you may be experiencing. During some visits, you may have a pelvic exam and Pap test as well. If you're sexually active, Dr. Bruksch will discuss your contraceptive needs and options. You should also be prepared to provide a complete health history, as well as a list of any medications and supplements you're taking.

How often do I need to schedule a well woman visit with Dr. Bruksch?

Ideally, you should schedule a well woman visit every year so Dr. Bruksch can keep track of changes in your health profile that could indicate a potential medical issue. By keeping track of data on a yearly basis, Dr. Bruksch is able to spot even minor changes so medical issues can be treated before they become serious. Plus, having an annual visit ensures you get the best care possible as your needs change with your age.
