Women's Health Q&A

What is women’s health?

Women’s health refers to the unique needs, health risks, and conditions that exclusively affect women and those that women experience differently than men. At Delmar Primary Care Associates, Dr. Williams can help you maintain and manage your reproductive, hormonal, mental, and overall health during your women’s health visits. 

You’ll have different women’s health needs over the course of your life as you go through different stages, like puberty, pregnancy, and menopause. Therefore, you should make women’s health visits regularly as a form of preventive care, in addition to your annual physical exams. 

Which health conditions affect women specifically?

Your health as a woman can be impacted by various health conditions and forms of dysfunction. You should always report unusual symptoms to Dr. Williams, whether they involve female-specific processes like menstruation or seem to affect your whole body, like major unexplained weight fluctuations. 

Dr. Williams frequently diagnoses and treats these health conditions that affect women disproportionately, distinctively, or exclusively:

  • Endometriosis
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Thyroid problems
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • Menstrual disorders
  • Breast cancer
  • Cervical cancer
  • Dyspareunia (pain during sex)
  • Infertility
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease

As your primary women’s health care provider, Dr. Williams can help you manage conditions like these as well as symptoms and complications during pregnancy or menopause. She can also direct you to management strategies for mental health issues like anxiety and depression. 

Which women’s health services are available?

Delmar Primary Care Associates offers all of the women’s health services you need to monitor and maintain your wellness at each stage of life. One of the most important services available is the yearly pelvic exam, a quick procedure that allows Dr. Williams to evaluate the health of reproductive organs like your uterus, ovaries, cervix, and vagina.

In addition to a yearly pelvic exam, Dr. Williams provides:

  • STD testing and treatment
  • Pregnancy testing
  • Hormone testing
  • Pap smears
  • Breast exams and mammograms
  • Family planning and birth control
  • Nutrition services and weight management

Dr. Williams makes sure to meet your health needs according to your age and risk factors when it comes to women’s health. She can also make referrals to trusted specialists if necessary for further women’s health care.
