Women's Health Q & A

What is women’s health?

Women’s health concerns the female reproductive system and imbalances in the female sex hormones estrogen and progesterone. Women’s health includes any health problems affecting the:

  • Breasts
  • Cervix
  • Fallopian tubes
  • Ovaries
  • Uterus
  • Vagina
  • Vulva

Women’s health also covers sexual health, menstruation, and menopause.

What is a well-woman exam?

At the office of David M. Mitzner, DO, Inc., a well-woman exam is a regular checkup that allows Dr. Mitzner to look for any health problems that you may not be aware of, and discuss any issues you wish to raise concerning your health.

During the well-woman exam, Dr. Mitzner carries out an internal and external check of your reproductive organs and performs a Pap smear. The Pap smear is a vital test that can detect the early stages of cervical cancer from a sample of cells Dr. Mitzner takes from your cervix.

In most cases, the results of Pap smears are negative or identify cell changes that aren’t linked to cancer, but if you do have any abnormal cells, you have a far better prognosis if your Pap smear picks up cervical cancer early on.

Dr. Mitzner can also carry out tests for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) or yeast infections if required and may take blood or urine samples to check organ function.

What kinds of medical conditions come under women’s health?

There are many medical conditions that can affect women, but some of the most frequently encountered are:

  • Bacterial vaginosis
  • Breast cancer
  • Chronic pelvic pain
  • Dysmenorrhea
  • Endometriosis
  • Menopause
  • Osteoporosis
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)
  • Pelvic organ prolapse (POP)
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Premenstrual syndrome
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Yeast infections
  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • Vaginal atrophy

In addition to medical conditions such as these, Dr. Mitzner can also help with selecting the best form of contraception for your circumstances. With so many choices available when it comes to birth control, it can be difficult to make an informed decision about which one suits you best, but Dr. Mitzner can help you choose and then monitor your progress.

He can further help improve your health by assessing whether you have any hormone imbalances and prescribing an appropriate bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.

Dr. Mitzner can also provide expert assistance and support if you need to lose weight or make lifestyle changes that would improve your health. Many women’s health conditions respond to healthier lifestyle modifications, but it can be a challenge to try and make changes without support, which is where the help of Dr. Mitzner could be invaluable.
