Reproductive Health Screenings: Importance and Frequency

Your reproductive system is complex, which is why you need a specialist. You need an OBGYN. The foundation of reproductive health care is routine screenings. Routine screenings can help identify medical issues early, so they can be treated.

What You Need To Know About Reproductive Health Screenings

A routine reproductive health screening should be performed once each year, or more often if you are experiencing:

  • Pelvic or abdominal pain
  • Irregular bleeding
  • Irregular periods

Your reproductive health screening includes a breast examination to check for lumps, swollen lymph nodes, and other abnormalities. Your OBGYN may also recommend a mammogram, ultrasound, or other imaging to aid in detection of breast cancer.

Another important piece of the reproductive health screening is the collection of a pap smear, to check for early signs of cervical cancer. Pap smear collection typically begins at age 21 and is done every three years for women ages 21 to 65.

Reproductive health screenings are more than just a thorough examination. During your reproductive health screening, your OBGYN doctor will:

  • Identify serious women’s health concerns including breast cancer, cervical cancer, osteoporosis, and more
  • Provide helpful insights and information about women’s health, so you can live your best life
  • Discuss major stages in your life, including puberty, pregnancy, and menopause

In addition to regular health screenings, you should seek out other important services from your OBGYN including:

  • Birth control options if you are sexually active
  • Fertility counseling if you and your partner are trying to start a family
  • Help with relief of unpleasant symptoms including pelvic pain, cramping, excessive bleeding, mood swings, night sweats, and hot flashes
  • Diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted infections and sexually transmitted
