Women's Health Care Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I have a gynecological exam?
It can vary by patient, but most women should have a gynecological exam, or a “well woman” exam, once a year. This exam allows Nurse Practitioner Taggar to evaluate reproductive health and wellness, and it’s an opportunity to monitor ongoing issues or concerns.
What does a gynecological exam include?
During a well woman exam at Natomas Family Practice, the doctor does a breast examination, along with a pelvic exam to check your female reproductive organs. The doctor also discusses your menstrual cycle, your birth control methods, and your sexual health with you. If you need to change birth control methods or get medication for a problem like unusually painful periods, the doctor provides those services.

A gynecological exam may also include tests such as blood tests or a Pap smear, depending on your specific needs and on how long it’s been since your last tests.
What is a Pap smear?
A Pap smear is a screening for abnormal cells on the cervix. The presence of these cells can be an early indicator of cervical cancer, or of the potential for cervical cancer. This is an important test for nearly all women today.
Who needs to have a Pap smear?
Women should have their first Pap smear by the time they turn 21. You should have Pap smears on a regular basis until the doctor tells you that you no longer need to have them, usually after age 65-70.
How often should you get a Pap smear?
Most women who are in good overall health need to have a Pap smear every three years. Women who are in high-risk groups, including those who are HIV-positive or have a weak immune system, may need to have more frequent Pap smears.

If you’re looking for a caring, compassionate, and gentle physician for gynecology exams, our physicians are ready to help. You can arrange an appointment at your convenience through the online appointment tool, or call the Natomas Family Practice office during regular business hours.
What is a gynecological exam?
A Gynecologic Exam involves an examination of the womb (womb, fallopian tube) for symptoms such as pelvic pain, abnormal uterine bleeding, and bleeding from the ovaries. The doctor inserts a speculum into the vagina and looks to find possible signs of ovarian cysts, sexually transmitted diseases, or cancers.
What does a gynecological exam include?
When you get a gynecological exam, typically it includes an abdominal view (obscenity), an ovulatory cycle history, pelvic exams (to see if there's anything wrong), and then the uterus is viewed through two fingers. This can also include a Pap Test to catch a sexually transmissible infection. It is usually done during your regular doctor visit.
How often should you have a gynecological exam?
Having a gynecological exam once a year is generally advised. Women need to keep up to date with their Pap Tests. If you notice any abnormality or if you experience any symptoms, such as heavy periods or pelvic pain, then you may want to schedule another appointment.

What to Expect at Your Annual Wellness Exam

Healthy Physicals Specialist
If it's your first visit with a new doctor, a women's wellness exam may consist of different things including a blood pressure check, pap test, pelvic exam, pregnancy, gynecology, and general health exams. A women's wellness check up should take approximately 20 minutes or less, depending on what you're having examined and if you have any serious concerns. It's also a great time to talk to your doctor about your breasts and get a breast cancer screening done to rule out anything serious, such as breast cancer.

You can prepare yourself for the exam by reviewing your symptoms. You may want to schedule an appointment with a health care professional as early as possible, especially if you've noticed any unusual bleeding or discomfort. If you require further information, such as Women's Wellness Exam Cost, or general information about our services, please contact us and a member of our team will get back to you as soon as they can.
