Regular gynecological checkups should be an integral part of every woman's comprehensive healthcare. Learn more about what that checkup involves.
Checkups include a complete medical or internal examination of multiple organ systems, including thyroid, breasts, heart, lungs, abdomen, extremities and a pelvic exam. Pap smears are also performed as part of the pelvic exam and are recommended for all women over age 18 or at the onset of sexual activity. Your gynecologist will refer you for a screening mammogram at an appropriate age based on your risk factors.
We offer several in-office procedures for contraception, including five-year or ten-year IUDs (intrauterine devices) and three-year implantable hormonal contraceptives.
