At what age do you need to begin your pap smear?

 

For cervical cancer screenings women should have their first pap smear at age 21 and then every three years after that  until you reach age 30. After age 30 you only need to have a pap every 5 years unless there are abnormalities or you have a high risk for cervical cancer.

 

When do I need to begin Breast Cancer Screenings?

 

We recommend that  every woman perform a self exam monthly. Whether it is on the first  of the month or on the day of your birthday. Please screen yourself monthly. If you nave not been taught how to perform a self breast exam please come in and we will teach you and together we can help protect yourself. While breast cancer can strike at any age after age 50 it is recommended that you receive a mammogram every two years.

 

When do I need a bone density screening?

 

If you have a high risk for decreased bone density, then it is best of we begin testing at age 50. Increased risk can stem from family history, history of smoking, decreased sun exposure, lack of physical activity...

 

What if I am sexually active?

 

Sexually active women should be evaluated for sexually transmitted diseases.

We offer a judgment free zone to evaluate you for all STDs.
