  • Vaccinations
  • Depression screening
  • Screening for sexually transmitted infections (STIs)
  • Concerns about sexual health
  • Menopause management
  • Weight control

At Women’s Care of Mid Cities, a well-woman exam covers not only your reproductive health but also your sexual, mental, and overall physical health.

During your well-woman exam at Women’s Care of Mid Cities, Vishnu Maya Upadhyay begins by recording your vital statistics, which include:

  • Weight and height
  • Blood pressure
  • Heart rate
  • Body temperature

He then addresses any concerns you may have or issues since your last visit.

As part of the physical examination, Vishnu Maya Upadhyay performs a pelvic exam to assess the health of your reproductive organs and often conducts a Pap test by swabbing your cervix. Additionally, he manually examines your breasts and abdomen to detect any abnormalities.

Following the physical examination, if not previously completed, Vishnu Maya Upadhyay may collect samples of your blood and urine for laboratory analysis.

Your well-woman exam at Women’s Care of Mid Cities offers a crucial opportunity for Vishnu Maya Upadhyay to screen for several potentially serious conditions that specifically affect women.

One primary focus is cervical cancer, which can be detected early, even in its precancerous stages, through a straightforward Pap test.

Additionally, Vishnu Maya Upadhyay conducts thorough examinations to identify any breast lumps or abnormalities in your reproductive organs that require further investigation.

If you have concerns about sexually transmitted infections (STIs), this exam is an ideal opportunity for screening. Vishnu Maya Upadhyay can conduct tests for a wide range of diseases, including HIV and syphilis, through simple blood tests.

Adolescent women should begin scheduling well-woman exams with Vishnu Maya Upadhyay as soon as they have their first period, typically between the ages of 13 and 15. Following your initial visit, it’s recommended to continue annual well-woman exams thereafter.
