Medical History Review: A healthcare provider will begin by discussing your medical history, including any previous illnesses, surgeries, medications, allergies, and family health conditions. This information helps us understand your health background and identify any potential risk factors or concerns.

Vital Signs Assessment: We will measure your vital signs, such as blood pressure, heart rate, temperature, and respiratory rate. These measurements provide important baseline information about your overall health.

Physical Examination: A comprehensive physical examination will be performed, focusing on various aspects of your health. This may include an assessment of your head, neck, breasts, heart, lungs, abdomen, and musculoskeletal system. Our healthcare provider will listen to your heart and lungs, palpate your abdomen, and conduct a breast examination.

Pelvic Examination: Depending on your age and specific needs, a pelvic examination may be conducted. This exam includes an external examination of the genital area and an internal examination of the cervix, uterus, and ovaries. It may involve a Pap smear to screen for cervical cancer and other tests or screenings as deemed necessary.

Laboratory Tests: We may recommend certain laboratory tests, such as blood work, urine analysis, or sexually transmitted infection (STI) screenings. These tests provide valuable insights into your overall health, detect potential medical conditions, and ensure appropriate care.

Breast Health: Breast health is an essential aspect of a female physical exam. Our healthcare provider will guide you through a breast self-examination and discuss the importance of regular mammograms or breast imaging based on your age and risk factors.

Counseling and Education: During the physical exam, our healthcare provider will engage in conversations about your lifestyle, nutrition, exercise habits, contraceptive options, menstrual health, and reproductive health. They will address any concerns or questions you may have, offer counseling and education, and provide personalized recommendations for maintaining your well-being.

Preventive Care and Vaccinations: As part of the physical exam, we will review your immunization history and recommend any necessary vaccinations to ensure you are up to date on preventive care.

Follow-up Recommendations: At the conclusion of the physical exam, our healthcare provider will review the findings, discuss any concerns, and provide recommendations for ongoing care. This may include follow-up appointments, additional tests or screenings, referrals to specialists if needed, or lifestyle modifications to support your overall health.

Please note that the specific components of a female physical exam may vary based on individual needs, medical history, and the clinic’s protocols. It’s always recommended to consult with a healthcare professional to determine the most appropriate preventive care plan for your specific situation.

How can I obtain the latest COVID-19 vaccine?

Receiving a COVID-19 vaccine is the most effective and safest measure to prevent severe illness. Similar to other vaccines, the COVID-19 vaccine instructs your body on building its own defense against the virus responsible for this disease. Typically, the COVID-19 vaccine consists of two doses, with the second dose administered 14 to 28 days after the initial one. It takes approximately three weeks after the final dose to develop immunity. Access to COVID-19 vaccination is subject to availability and regulations set by your state. Please reach out to us for further information on obtaining a COVID-19 vaccine.
