How does Women’s Wellness Screening work?

During your women’s wellness screening, your obstetrician/gynaecologist will work closely with you to create a personalised plan that caters to your specific needs.
The screening process typically involves several steps, these are:
  1. Consultation: to discuss your medical history, concerns, and goals to help understand your unique health profile and tailor the screening accordingly.
  2. Physical examinations: this may include measures of your vital signs, body mass index (BMI), and a visual inspection of your overall health.
  3. Medical assessments: this may involve specialised tests such as blood work, mammograms, Pap smears, bone density scans, and other relevant screenings based on your age and medical history.
  4. Results: your obstetrician/gynaecologist will explain any findings, address your concerns, and provide recommendations for further action (if necessary).
  5. Personalised treatment or care plan: this can include lifestyle modifications, preventive measures, or referrals to specialists for further evaluation or treatment.
