Preventive Care

in New York, New York

One of the most effective ways to remain healthy is by preventing many conditions from developing in the first place. Although you can do a lot by living a healthy and active lifestyle, you’ll need the help of your gynecologist and physician to perform the right screenings and tests to ensure your body is free of concerns— and provide early intervention where necessary.

All of these methods can be completed during or in tandem with a Well Woman’s Visit with your gynecologist, who can also take a broader look at your overall health and recommend positive lifestyle changes to make sure you’re happy and healthy in the long run.

Why is Preventive Care Important?

In the case of certain health concerns like cancer or sexually transmitted diseases, prevention is the best way to mitigate your risks. This means that a proactive approach to your health can reduce the chances of costly and dangerous conditions later on that can be more difficult to treat. Preventive care doesn’t just extend to reproductive health either— your gynecologist can provide counseling on your lifestyle and many different facets of your emotional and physical health.

How Can My Gynecologist Help?

During a Well Woman’s Visit, your gynecologist can discuss your health and any symptoms you may be having. Then, your gynecologist can perform the appropriate screenings for your recommended schedule. Your Well Woman’s Visit is a great time to ask any questions you may have about your body, life stage, symptoms, or wellbeing so you can make informed choices about your health and establish good habits.
