Most women often have misunderstandings about their reproductive health and quickly arrive at conclusions deeming themselves perfectly healthy citing average periods and menopause. However, this mindset should be avoided at all costs and must supplant with periodic visits to an OB/GYN free clinic for a proper well-woman examination. In fact, for women maintaining an active sexual life and those that reached or exceeded the menopause stage, undergoing at least an annual thorough well-women checkup at a women’s health clinic is especially important.

A well-woman examination contains numerous layers of providing care. It provides a good knowledge about the reproductive health in different stages along with maintaining a good relationship with the clinic health professionals and the staff. Below are some reasons why having a well-woman test at an OB/GYN free clinic is important.

Building a Good Relationship

Regular visits to a health clinic specializing in OB/GYN services provide a significant benefit of building a good relationship with the doctors and medical staff. This will make possible good levels of comfort with the doctors, which is vital when undergoing a well-woman checkup.

Common conditions affecting the health of women like breast and cervical cancer, HPV, etc., can remain undetected in the body. Conducting periodic or annual visits to the clinics will ensure that any such unseen changes in the body are understood, thereby minimizing the risks of contracting any such diseases. Besides, developing a good relationship with the clinic will result in mutual understanding concerning women’s health issues, which is helpful when requiring further diagnosis and treatment.

Revised Checkups

Well-woman exams involve the use of revised checkup procedures for detecting any trace of problems in the reproductive and overall health of a woman. Such clinics provide one with the option of diagnosing numerous health conditions dependent on the patient’s age, lifestyle, and family medical history. Screening for sexually transmitted diseases is also provided in a well-woman checkup for detecting any signs of the diseases in women having outside physical relationships.

Confidential and Caring

Health clinics that provide well-woman examinations operate in strict confidentiality relating to the patients. This ensures that you are free from any inhibitions to ask about any doubts, as well as answer all the questions asked by the doctor conducting the well-woman exam. This is highly important as it assists in getting satisfying results related to the checkups that enable better decision making concerning your reproductive health.
