Women’s Health and Wellness Services at Ogden Clinic
There are several services available to women at Ogden Clinic including:
- Preventative care: Our team of Utah gynecologists offers a variety of preventative care services to ensure optimal reproductive health. Pap smears are routine tests which women should have at least once every 3 years from ages 21-65, to test for cervical cancer. Women should also have routine breast and pelvic exams to test for cancer, cysts, and changes within the reproductive organs.
- Sexual health screenings: Sexual health services include family planning such as fertility treatments, prenatal care, birth control, and sterilization procedures. Your Utah gynecologist can also conduct reproductive exams to test for fertility and ovulation if you want to start having children.
- Treatment: The Utah gynecology team at Ogden Clinic is equipped to diagnose and treat the various conditions and infections that women may experience in their lifetime. From the beginning of the menstrual cycle through menopause, we are here for you. We can provide treatment for yeast infections, urinary tract infections (UTI), and other gynecological issues as they arise. We can also diagnose any conditions that may cause heavy or irregular periods, and suggest treatment options.
In general, women need to see the doctor more often than men because of their reproductive and sexual health needs, in addition to other health concerns including cardiovascular health, cancer prevention, diabetes counseling, and osteoporosis. Regular checkups can help you lead a healthy and fulfilling life.
Taking steps to prevent and treat illness is key in maintaining optimal health throughout the course of your life.
