Having an occasional heavy period or experiencing some mild discomfort is not necessarily a cause for concern. However, if you have excessive vaginal pain or other health difficulties, it may be time for an annual exam. Annual exams are standard examinations for women that are meant to evaluate their physical health and offer counseling or education about lifestyle and health-related behaviors. In most cases, a typical annual exam includes a breast examination, pelvic exam, and PAP smear. Women who are sexually active may need to be screened or treated for sexually transmitted diseases as well. At Cohen Medical Practice, we are happy to provide these services and more should you need them.
What Are Annual Exams?
Annual exams are essential for helping women of all ages stay informed about their physical health. In some cases, a woman may have underlying issues such as fibroids or a bladder infection without knowing it. By coming in for regular visits, you can stay abreast of your physical health. When a woman sees the same doctor over a number of years, the doctor becomes familiar with her medical history and response to medications. As such, regular visits to our NYC practice can help us get to know you and offer ongoing wellness support.
What Can an Annual Exam Reveal?
An annual exam, or well woman exam, can reveal the presence of abnormalities such as breast lumps and determine additional testing procedures should there be potential signs of problems. After doing a routine physical examination, our staff may recommend a Diagnostic Hysteroscopy, or other procedure to get a better sense of what your body is experiencing and why.
What Do Annual Exams Involve?
Annual exams involve a dialogue between you and your doctor along with a basic physical evaluation. During your visit to one of our NYC locations, we can provide you with contraceptive counseling, a breast exam, an evaluation of your menopause symptoms, a GYN exam, and more. More than just a casual visit, these exams can help us determine the next steps needed to help you feel better.
What Can I Expect?
When you arrive at Cohen Medical Practice, we will discuss your concerns and try to get to the bottom of what you’re struggling with. If you are experiencing abnormal bleeding, irregular periods, or other issues, we can provide you with a diagnosis and discuss steps toward treatment. Our staff strives to create a safe and comforting environment for all of our clients. We will do everything possible to make sure your voice is heard and your concerns are addressed.
