Women's Health Q & A

What is women’s health care?

Women’s health care is care that focuses on the female-specific parts of your body, often using preventive screenings to protect your health. On top of taking care of your body on a holistic level, the providers at Central Jersey Family Physicians also consider your reproductive health. 

The good news is that there are screenings available today for catching breast cancer, cervical cancer, and other primarily female-specific health issues. The problem is that many women don’t visit a gynecologist as often as they should or don’t have a gynecologist at all.

The doctors at Central Jersey Family Physicians know that you lead a full, busy life. They also know that regular women’s health screenings can be life-saving. To make it as easy as possible for you to get the right care to protect your long-term health, they offer women’s health care at their office. 

What is included in women’s health care?

The team at Central Jersey Family Physicians strives to make all the same services you would find at a gynecologist available to you from the convenience of their office. That includes:

  • Well-woman exams
  • Breast exams
  • Pap smears
  • Family planning (birth control)

At Central Jersey Family Physicians, your women’s health care is tailored to you. For example, if you have a family history of cervical cancer, they can offer Pap smears on a regular basis to screen you consistently, ensuring any signs of cancer are caught as early as possible. 

How often should I get women’s health care?

At least once a year. An annual well-woman exam is an excellent way to be proactive about your health. 

That said, you don’t have to wait a year for women’s health care. The team at Central Jersey Family Physicians is available to you whenever you have a question or want a checkup. Whether you’re due for your routine well-woman exam or you’ve noticed something unusual like unexplained pelvic pain or a lump in your breast, don’t hesitate to contact Central Jersey Family Physicians. Their all-female staff of board-certified doctors is here to help you get the treatment you need to protect your health.
