It’s important for every woman of every age to form a partnership with a trusted health care provider early on. It could be an OB/GYN (obstetrician/gynecologist), a certified nurse midwife, or a nurse practitioner. We encourage you to think of your health care partner as your “wellness guide” who will be by your side whenever you need advice, support or compassionate care. Your good health depends on having routine screenings such as mammograms and Pap tests to detect potential problems at their earliest stages. It also depends on you being aware of any changes in your body that may require further attention. Our goal at Lux Medical Health Center in South Florida is to help you better understand certain conditions that many women share and guide you in choosing the best treatment options.
If you’re sexually active and/or older than 18, protect yourself with gynecological exams. Regular check ups are the best way to catch conditions at their earliest stages when treatment is most effective.
It’s your body, but lots of people are counting on you to take very good care of yourself.
