Women’s Health

Women’s Annual Exams

All sexually active women or over the age of 21 need a Pap every two to three years. Discuss with your doctor how often one is needed.  Part of the well woman exam is a breast exam.  The risk for cervical cancer begins a few years after first sexual intercourse and the risk of breast cancer goes up steadily throughout a woman's life.

Contraceptive services including hormonal methods, Diaphragm fitting, IUDs and injections are available. The key to effective contraception is fitting the method to the patient’s lifestyle, philosophy and needs.

Colposcopy and LEEP for Abnormal PAP Smears
