Healthy Lifestyle Medicine offers:
A pelvic examination allows the team to view and evaluate your sexual and reproductive organs for any unusual features or concerning symptoms. You should get a pelvic exam yearly starting during late adolescence.
A Pap smear is a test that evaluates the health of the cells of your cervix. The team collects a cell sample and tests it for cervical cancer.
The purpose of a breast exam is to detect breast cancer. You get a basic breast exam with every routine women’s health visit, and you start getting mammograms (X-ray breast cancer screenings) after age 40.
STD screenings are tests that detect STDs even when they’re symptomless.
According to the team's recommendations, you can also get additional as-needed women’s health services at Healthy Lifestyle Medicine, including Pellecome® hormone therapy, supplements, birth control management, and EMSELLA® for urinary incontinence.

You can manage many of these conditions nonsurgically, often with lifestyle changes and alternative therapies alone. If the team recommends surgery, they refer you to a local primary surgeon while advocating for you along the way.
