Women's Health Q & A

What women’s health services are available?

Women’s health services focus on needs specific to women. Dr. Marwaha and the medical team provide a variety of health care services, including wellness visits to evaluate the health and function of your reproductive system, even if you’re not experiencing symptoms.

The providers also offer preventive screenings to reduce your risk for chronic diseases like cervical cancer and can recommend the right options for birth control to prevent unwanted pregnancies.

What can I expect during a women’s health exam?

During your women’s health exam, your Naperville Internist provider spends time reviewing your personal and family medical history. They also evaluate your current health during a physical exam and discuss your menstrual cycle, your family plans, and any new symptoms or concerns you have about your health.

To get a better look at your reproductive organs, your provider performs a pelvic exam. This involves a manual examination of your vagina and uterus.

As part of your pelvic exam, your physician performs a Pap smear by collecting a sample of the cells at the entrance to your cervix. They send the sample to a medical lab to determine if you have precancerous cells, which can increase your risk for cervical cancer.

Dr. Marwaha and the medical team can also recommend birth control to prevent unintended pregnancy.

Which form of birth control is right for me?

Thanks to a variety of types of birth control, you have options to meet your individual needs and plan for the family you want.

Dr. Marwaha and the team can help you choose your best birth control option by reviewing your medical history, current health, and plans for family. They may recommend birth control pills, patches, or injections based on your needs and your lifestyle.

During your routine women’s wellness exam, your provider monitors your success with your chosen birth control. They can also make changes to your birth control or help you safely stop using it if you wish to become pregnant.
