Women's Health Q&A

Why do I need women’s health care?

Women’s health care supports your reproductive health, but it doesn’t stop there. The women’s health specialists at HealthStone Primary Care Partners focus on all the health concerns faced by women, including the hormonal changes faced throughout adulthood and the impact of hormone imbalances on physical and mental health.

Your provider also monitors you for the most common health problems women encounter. Of those, the top three include heart disease (the leading cause of death in women and men), breast cancer (the top cause of cancer deaths in women), and autoimmune diseases.

Women have a significantly higher risk than men of developing autoimmune conditions such as thyroid disease, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, and Crohn’s disease.

What services might I receive through women’s health care?

The compassionate providers at HealthStone Primary Care Partners offer women’s health services such as:

  • Pelvic exams
  • Breast exams (breast cancer screening)
  • Pap smears (cervical cancer screening)
  • Birth control
  • STD screening and treatment
  • Menopause management
  • Hormonal imbalance screenings
  • Menstrual disorder treatment
  • Vaginal infection testing and treatment
  • Weight loss management
  • Urinary tract infection (UTI) treatment

Your provider also routinely assesses your risk for chronic health problems, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, and autoimmune diseases. They refer you to specialists if needed for the treatment of advanced or complex diseases.

What screenings are part of women’s health care?

HealthStone Primary Care Partners completes some screenings during your appointment and refers you to the appropriate specialist for others. Women need screenings for:

  • Breast cancer (clinical breast exam in the office)
  • Cervical cancer screening (Pap smears in the office)
  • Osteoporosis screening (dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry)
  • Colorectal cancer screening (stool testing and colonoscopy)
  • Skin cancer screening (full body exam in the office)

Your provider recommends the necessary screenings based on your age, health, and risk of developing certain diseases.

What signs indicate I need women’s health care?

The most common signs of reproductive tract problems include:

  • Pelvic pain
  • Heavy bleeding
  • Bleeding between periods
  • Bleeding after menopause
  • Irregular or missed periods
  • No menstrual periods
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Vaginal itching or burning
  • Vaginal discharge
  • Frequent need to urinate
  • Burning during urination 

Don’t wait to schedule a women’s health appointment if you have any of these symptoms. They could signal many possible problems, ranging from a mild UTI to uterine (endometrial) cancer.
