Women’s health is a branch of medicine that deals with common health problems that many women face. Examples include:
Dr. Agim and her team can screen you for these and other women’s health issues before they become problematic.
During women’s health checkups at Suncoast Medical Group, you can expect the following:
Your specialist evaluates your weight, body mass index (BMI), pulse, blood pressure, and other vital signs when you arrive for your women’s health checkup.
Dr. Agim discusses your medical history, including the symptoms you have, personal and family history of diseases, past surgeries, and medications you take.
Dr. Agim examines your eyes, throat, neck, breathing, heartbeat, abdomen, and pelvis during a women’s health exam. Then, she completes a breast and pelvic exam to evaluate your reproductive organs. During a Pap test, she inserts a speculum into your vagina and swabs a sample of cervical cells to screen for cancer.
Based on your health and risk factors, Dr. Agim might suggest additional diagnostic tests. Examples include urine testing, blood tests, mammograms, ultrasounds, heart function testing, or psychological tests to screen for depression and other mental health challenges.
Common women’s health treatments include medical weight loss, vaccinations, birth control, and lifestyle changes. Additional treatment offerings include medications, hormone therapy, dietary supplements, and minor surgical procedures.
Dr. Agim can refer you to a specialist for further diagnostic testing or treatment if you have a complex women’s health problem or if you’re pregnant or trying to become pregnant.
Schedule a women’s health exam with Suncoast Medical Group every year or more often if Dr. Agim recommends it because of a medical condition. Come in if you experience new or unusual symptoms of a women’s health problem, you become pregnant, or you have concerns or questions about your health.
