Well Woman Exam
Providing comprehensive Well Woman Exams to help you feel your best.
Well Woman Exams are an important part in helping prevent health issues before they arise.
We know life gets busy, and the number of responsibilities on your plate can be overwhelming. Whether it’s work, caring for your family, or trying to keep your home in order – women are often pulled in a million directions. Tending to others before yourself may come naturally, but your health is a priority and shouldn’t be placed on the back burner. At Eagles Landing Health, we believe nothing is more important than taking care of you, so give yourself the gift of health – beginning with a Well Woman’s Exam.
What is a Well Woman’s Exam?
A Well Woman’s Exam focuses on the unique medical needs of women – addressing your physical, mental, sexual, and reproductive health to help keep you healthy and happy. Starting from early adulthood all the way through the menopause years and beyond, this comprehensive exam combines many services into one appointment to help make life easier for you. Not only can a Well Woman’s Exam help with preventive care, but it also helps with early detection – which is even more important as you get older and your risk for serious health issues increases.
Why is a Well Woman’s Exam necessary?
A routine Well Woman’s Exam provides women an opportunity to receive preventive care services and discuss with their practitioner ways to minimize health risks and work towards a healthy lifestyle. Women, ages 18-65, should have this exam done on an annual basis to help them get the unique care they need and prevent serious medical issues before they arise.

What to expect at a Well Woman’s Exam?
During your annual Well Woman’s Exam, your provider will begin with a complete medical history and address any concerns or new symptoms. Exams are personalized to each patient and may depend on the woman’s age, physical health, sexual activity, and other health or risk factors. Services may include: a breast examination to look for early signs of breast cancer, a pelvic exam with a Pap smear and/or HPV screening, general exam, immunizations, and more. Your provider will also discuss additional health recommendations and provide educational counseling based on their assessment.
Ladies…make your health a priority.
Women’s health needs vary significantly from those of men, and those needs change drastically as you get older. Scheduling routine exams with your provider and making healthy lifestyle choices can not only help make you feel better but prevent future medical problems.
