OBGYN Annual Checkup, Pap Smears & More

As a woman, it is important to have regular screenings for a range of conditions that specifically affect you. The team at Dr. David J. Silverman Associates is passionate about preventive care, and we offer a variety of screenings and tests to help our patients catch potential problems early. 

Some of the women's health services we provide include:

  • Annual GYN Checkups: During your annual checkup, your provider will perform a physical exam and order any necessary tests or screenings. This is also a great time to ask any questions you may have about your health or to discuss any concerns you may be experiencing.
  • Pap Smears: A pap smear is a screening test for cervical cancer. It is recommended that all women over the age of 21 have a pap smear every 3 years, and more frequently if they are at high risk for cervical cancer.
  • STI Testing: If you are sexually active, it is important to get tested regularly for STIs. We offer a variety of STI tests, and we can also provide information and resources on how to reduce your risk of contracting an STI.

If you're due for your annual checkup or pap smear, or if you have any concerns about your health, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with us. You can do so by calling our office or by filling out our online form.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which conditions am I at risk for because I’m a woman?

Some of the conditions that women are at a higher risk for include:

  • Cancer: Women are at a higher risk for several types of cancer, including breast, cervical, and ovarian cancer.
  • Osteoporosis: Osteoporosis is a condition that causes the bones to become brittle. Women are at a higher risk for developing osteoporosis than men.
  • Endometriosis: Endometriosis is a condition in which the tissue that lines the uterus grows outside of the uterus. It can cause pain and other symptoms.
  • Ovarian cysts: Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs that can develop on the ovaries. They are usually harmless, but some may require treatment.

What can I do to reduce my risk of developing these conditions?

There are a few things you can do to reduce your risk of developing these conditions:

  • Get screened: Screenings and tests can help catch potential problems early, when they are more treatable. Be sure to get your annual checkup and pap smear as recommended.
  • Know your family history: If you have a family history of any of these conditions, you may be at a higher risk for developing them. Talk to your family members and get regular screenings if you are at a high risk.
  • Live a healthy lifestyle: Eating a healthy diet, getting regular exercise, and not smoking can help reduce your risk of developing many of these conditions.

If you have any questions about these conditions or how to reduce your risk, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with us. We would be happy to discuss this further with you.
