Women's Health Q & A
What does ‘women’s health’ refer to?
Women’s health refers to the focus on the specific needs of women or people assigned female at birth (AFAB) such as family planning, birth control, and preventive care and regular health screenings.
Dr. Hussaini is a compassionate provider, dedicated to the physical and emotional health needs of women, whether she’s dealing with annual checkups, critical intervention, screenings for cervical or breast cancer, or family planning.
What are some women’s health services?
Dr. Hussaini offers a variety of essential women’s health services, particularly preventive care, including:
Well Woman Visits
During a well-woman visit, Dr. Hussaini evaluates you, your body, and your reproductive health. Typically she recommends annual well-woman visits, depending on your age, medical history, and overall health. If you’re sexually active, Dr. Hussaini will likely discuss your birth control options during your well-woman visits.
Pap tests, or Pap smears, are standard checks for cervical cancer. Dr. Hussaini scrapes cells from the opening of your cervix and scrutinizes them under a microscope to make sure you’re cancer-free. Based on your age and medical history, Dr. Hussaini advises you on how often you need to get a Pap smear.
A mammogram is a low-risk X-ray that allows radiologists enlisted by Dr. Hussaini to check for abnormal changes in your breast tissue. You need regular mammograms to detect breast cancer early, while you have the best chance to treat it successfully.
Dr. Hussaini offers clinical breast exams to detect different types of abnormalities and breast cancer warning signs such as lumps on your breasts. This exam is typically part of your well-woman visit. Dr. Hussaini also shows you how to perform breast exams so you can recognize abnormalities on your own.
