Most women should have annual women’s health exams. Your women’s health exam includes evaluation of your reproductive health, your breast health, and all the other unique parts of women’s wellness.
During your women’s health exam, you can have a Pap smear, pregnancy test, or any other necessary tests. If you need help with family planning or birth control, your Pikeville Urgent Care & Body Boutique can make recommendations and help you make the choices that are best for you.
A Pap smear is a screening test that looks for abnormalities that could indicate cervical cancer. Pap smears can also identify other health problems, for example, infection or inflammation.
During a Pap smear, your Pikeville Urgent Care & Body Boutique provider widens your vagina with a speculum to access your cervix. Then, they’ll place a brush at the cervix entry to collect a small cell sample. Laboratory evaluation reveals whether the cell sample is abnormal or potentially abnormal.
If you have an abnormal Pap smear, you may need further testing or an early intervention treatment to help you avoid cervical cancer. Pap smear frequency depends on the individual, and not all women need yearly tests. Your Pikeville Urgent Care & Body Boutique recommends a Pap smear frequency for you based on your health history and current health.
After you take a home pregnancy test, it’s best to come into Pikeville Urgent Care & Body Boutique to verify the pregnancy with a medical test. Your care provider can do a blood test, which is far more sensitive than a urine test at home. A blood test can verify pregnancy as early as six to eight days after ovulation.
Pregnancy ultrasound services in the first trimester verify your pregnancy, give you a due date, and give you the first glimpse of your developing baby. Later pregnancy ultrasound services, usually done in the second trimester, can confirm your baby’s sex (if you want to find out!) and monitor their growth. Depending on your situation, you may also need other ultrasounds during pregnancy.
