Women's Health Q & A

What happens at an annual exam?

An annual exam includes a full screening of a woman's medical history. It includes a pelvic and breast exam to rule out a number of diseases. Women often have a pap smear at this annual appointment. The pap smear takes some cells from the cervix to test for cervical cancer and other diseases. Women should schedule an annual exam yearly, but may only need a pap smear every 3 years depending on age.

When does a woman need to start having annual exams?

Women need to start having annual exams when they start having intercourse. All women, even those who have not had intercourse, should start having exams at age 21.

What are some common women's health issues?

The doctors at San Marcos Family Medicine can help women with many problems, including:

  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Gynecological cancer
  • Interstitial cystitis
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Pregnancy
  • Infertility
  • Menopause

Women dealing with one of these issues or who have questions about their health can make an appointment with San Marcos Family Medicine.

What is menopause?

Menopause is the process wherein a woman's body transitions from being fertile to no longer being able to get pregnant, resulting in the cessation of menstruation. This typically happens between age 45 and 50, and a decline in reproductive hormones triggers the change.

What is endometriosis?

Endometriosis causes the uterine tissue to grow outside the uterus. When it adheres to other organs, then breaks down during menstruation, it causes adhesions and scar tissue. This condition affects over 5.5 million women in America.

What is polycystic ovary syndrome?

PCOS is a hormone condition that causes enlarged ovaries with small cysts. It can cause acne and facial hair as well. Women with PCOS causes an imbalance of estrogen and progesterone, which can also disrupt menstruation, hurt fertility, and impact cardiac function. The doctors at San Marcos Family Medicine can help women manage their symptoms and reduce the impact of PCOS.

What is interstitial cystitis?

Interstitial cystitis is a chronic condition that causes bladder pressure and pain. Some women with this condition also experience pelvic pain. The symptoms are similar to the symptoms of a urinary tract infection (UTI) but without an infection being present. With the help of the doctors at San Marcos Family Medicine, women can get relief for their symptoms.
