Live better and longer with regular well woman examinations

"My schedule is packed." "I feel fine." "It's so embarrassing to talk about." "I'm not planning to get pregnant." "I'm not sexually-active." "I've already gone through menopause." There are plenty of arguments for avoiding an annual well woman examination. There are two compelling reasons to schedule this painless, less-than-an-hour visit:
  • It could save your life.
  • It could improve the quality of your life.

The importance of early detection

One of every eight women in this country will get breast cancer. Breast cancer resulted in more than 40,000 deaths in 2015. Both incidence rates and death rates have DECREASED in recent years. The five-year relative survival rate for Stage 0 and Stage 1 breast cancers is 100 percent.

Those statistics illustrate the importance of early detection of breast cancer, and the same concept applies to cervical, ovarian, and other female cancers. In many cases, symptoms are not obvious when the disease is most treatable, but problems can be detected through medical examination and screening.

Living well

Many women suffer needlessly with female problems that are not life-threatening. In most cases, these conditions can be improved, allowing you to enjoy more comfort and confidence. A well woman exam is your opportunity to ask questions in an unhurried, discreet atmosphere.

The visit gives Dr. Jenkins a chance to update your general medical history. He will share information to help you make informed healthcare decisions and enjoy a healthier lifestyle with:
  • Instructions for home breast exams
  • Nutrition and fitness counseling
  • Immunizations
  • Tips for minimizing health risks
  • Frank discussion on depression and anxiety
  • Explanation of birth control options
  • Family planning

Dr. Jenkins recommends scheduling a first well woman examination at the onset of puberty – no later than age 21 or when a young woman becomes sexually active. Regular ongoing checkups help women of all ages live well and live longer. Call 855-346-8610 to schedule yours.
