What is a well-woman health screening?

As a woman, understanding your health also includes knowing about your gynaecological health. That is where the well-woman health screening comes in. It is a vital check-up all women should go for annually with their gynaecologist.

Why is a well-woman health screening important?

It is designed to help women better understand their reproductive health and help detect any abnormalities at an early stage.

Even if you seem perfectly healthy and show no signs of illness, regular health screenings for women are valuable in identifying early signs of common gynae conditions. Research indicates that the early detection of such conditions through routine screenings has improved survival rates. Timely identification allows prompt diagnosis, enabling more effective treatments and interventions for various gynaecological issues.

What to expect during a well-woman health screening?

  • A physical examination
  • An ultrasound scan of the pelvis
  • Family medical history and current lifestyle
  • Pap smear (For women below 30)
  • HPV DNA Test (For women 30 and above)

Taking charge of your health goes beyond maintaining a nutritious diet and regular exercise. It involves scheduling regular health checks, especially with your gynaecologist, to identify potential issues early on. This proactive approach not only contributes to your well-being but also has the potential to save lives. Your body will appreciate the care and attention in the long run!
