What services does women’s health provide?

Grace Health Services provides many health services for women of all ages, including:

Pelvic exam

This is a thorough assessment of your reproductive organs, including your uterus, ovaries, cervix, and fallopian tubes. It helps detect any abnormalities early to ensure timely treatment.

Pap smear

A Pap smear is a cervical cancer screening that involves collecting cells from your cervix to check for any early signs of cervical cancer. Your provider typically performs this exam during a pelvic exam.

Breast exams

During a breast exam, your provider checks your breasts for any lumps or irregularities to detect early signs of breast cancer.

Contraception counseling

Contraception counseling involves discussing various birth control options to help you make informed choices about your reproductive health.

Menopause management

Menopause is a significant life transition for women. Your provider can help manage symptoms like hot flashes, mood changes, and bone health so you navigate this phase more comfortably.

Weight management

Grace Health Services offers many options to help you achieve and maintain a healthy weight, including personalized medical weight loss plans, semaglutide injections, and intravenous (IV) infusion therapy. 

What can I expect during a women’s health appointment?

During your initial visit, your provider reviews your medical history, asks about any concerns you may have, and completes a thorough physical exam. Depending on your age and medical history, they may recommend a pelvic exam and Pap smear. 

After the initial exam, your provider develops a personalized women’s health care plan for you.
