Care in Your Twenties & Thirties
A woman's 20s and 30s are often considered the "child bearing years". Regular GYN care is important for a woman's overall health, whether you are planning a pregnancy or not. It is also important to continue your regular GYN care post pregnancy. Our Certified Nurse Midwives are a great choice for your GYN care needs. It is important to remember that we are OB/GYN specialist, and we encourage you to also have a primary care provider.
Annual Well Visit
An annual well woman visit is important for overall healthcare. It is vital that these visits occur when well, and that problem visits be scheduled separately. It is recommended that when a young woman is 21 years old, she should have her first PAP Smear. We recommend speaking with your healthcare provider to determine your personalized health care plan and appropriate timing of PAP Smears.
It is recommended that a baseline be performed at the age of 40. A mammogram before the age 0f 40 may be appropriate due to personal or family history. Additional mammogram testing may be ordered based on the need for diagnostic imaging.
