A routine well woman examination is your best tool for preventing illness. A regular checkup protects your health by looking for signs of developing disease, so that it can be prevented or treated before it becomes a serious problem. A well woman exam also gives you time to talk with your provider at Fairfax OB-GYN Associates about any concerns related to your health and lifestyle.
Please don’t hesitate to call Fairfax OB-GYN Associates or book an appointment online if you have any questions about your health. They’re available to quickly assess symptoms, learn about your concerns, and determine when it’s important to see your doctor or midwife.
These are some common symptoms that need medical attention:
Heavy menstrual periods or abnormal bleeding: Periods that last longer than seven days, a flow that’s heavier than normal, or bleeding after menopause should be evaluated. Abnormal bleeding may be a sign of a serious underlying health problem.
Pelvic pain: It’s important to find the cause of pelvic pain to prevent potential complications and to give you relief from the pain. Two causes of pelvic pain, uterine fibroids and endometriosis, can cause scarring and lead to infertility if they’re not treated as soon as possible.
Abnormal vaginal discharge: Vaginal discharge accompanied by itching and burning often signals a yeast infection. However, these symptoms are also caused by bacterial infections and sexually transmitted diseases.
Urinary symptoms: The frequent and/or urgent need to urinate or burning during urination are symptoms of urinary problems, which can be treated at Fairfax OB-GYN Associates.
