3 Reasons to Regularly Visit a Women’s Health Clinic, Stayton, Oregon

If scheduling an appointment at a local women’s health clinic does not hold a spot on your to-do list, it’s imperative to make it a top priority. In fact, the medical professionals at Stayton’s Santiam Hospital recommend visiting a women’s health clinic at least once a year for a wellness exam. Not only does this provide valuable preventative care, but it also allows for early detection and ongoing treatment, which are both essential to healthy living.

3 Important Reasons to Visit a Women’s Health Clinic on a Regular Basis

1. General Health Assessment

Similar to an annual physical, an OB-GYN wellness exam is a vital part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. During the exam, a gynecologist will examine essential parts of the female anatomy to ensure there are no apparent issues and address any potential risk factors. This will help you avoid potential problems in the future, as well as catch existing ones before they become serious.

2. Cancer Screening

womens health clinic Various parts of the female reproductive system are susceptible to cancer, which makes OB-GYN visits all the more important. During the exam, your gynecologist will conduct a Pap smear to rule out cervical cancer as well as test for HPV, which has been shown to cause various forms of cancer. Since many precancerous issues carry few side effects, a visit to a women’s health clinic is the only way to find out if you’re safe.

3. Pregnancy & Sexual Activity Guidance

Whether your goal is or isn’t to get pregnant, an OB-GYN can provide invaluable guidance. At your annual visit, they will offer valuable advice about safe sex practices, as well as birth control options. If you’re trying to become pregnant but are having a hard time, they can also address underlying issues and recommend possible solutions.
