Well Woman Exams Q & A

What is a well woman exam?

As you first learned in your grade school health class, there are physical characteristics that define men and women. Many of these characteristics have to do with reproduction; a woman’s body is designed to bear children and is physically engineered to do so.

These physical differences are readily noticeable on the outside, but it’s what goes on inside your body that has the most impact on your health.

The hormones that dictate your reproductive phases, from puberty through menopause, play a substantial role in your health. Any disruption or imbalance in these hormones can have far-reaching effects on your health.

What are the most common medical problems faced by women?

There are hundreds of diseases and conditions that are unique to females, but the most common reasons women seek treatment with Dr. Jones are:

  • Heavy bleeding or irregular periods
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • STDs
  • Incontinence
  • Menopause symptoms

This list is by no means comprehensive, but it gives you a clear idea of the scope of Dr. Jones’s expertise in female health.

How are female health problems diagnosed?

Before Dr. Jones can treat your health issues, she works tirelessly to pinpoint the problem and determine which treatment is best. Dr. Jones has several diagnostic tools in her arsenal, including:

  • Electrodiagnostic testing of your pelvic floor
  • Multichannel urodynamic evaluation
  • Cystourethroscopy to view your bladder and urethra
  • Dynamic fluoroscopy, which is an imaging technique

These tools are on top of a comprehensive physical exam, as well as lab testing.

How are female health issues treated?

It depends entirely on your diagnosis. In broad terms, Dr. Jones works with you to solve your health issues in the least invasive way possible. Rest assured that whatever is causing your female health problem, Dr. Jones works with you to resolve the issue.

Typically, Dr. Jones starts with conservative treatments and gradually turns to more aggressive treatments if necessary. Dr. Jones is up-to-date on the latest minimally invasive surgical techniques and uses the da Vinci® laparoscopic robotic system to perform hysterectomies.
