START GETTING SCREENED FOR BREAST AND CERVICAL CANCER

All women should perform monthly self-exams to determine any abnormalities in their breasts. Your annual women’s health exam is a great time to learn how to effectively complete these self-exams.

Pap smears are tests to detect the early stages of cervical cancer. In most cases, women should have a Pap smear every three years once they are over the age of 21 and sexually active. If your Pap smear test comes back abnormal, further testing can determine whether you have early-stage cervical cancer, which is often treatable. It is recommended that women over age 65 or those that have had a hysterectomy no longer need Pap smears performed annually.

The practitioners at Brookridge Internal Medicine Associates offer screenings and other women's health services for all your healthcare needs.

WHEN SHOULD I GET TESTED STDs?

Women who are sexually active should talk to their doctor about sexually transmitted disease (STD) screenings. You’re at risk for STDs if you have had unprotected sex. Common STDs include:

  • HIV
  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhea
  • Herpes
  • Syphilis

It’s best practice to use protection when engaging in sexual activities, such as a male or female condom. If you’re exposed to an STD, talk to your doctor about options for treatment.
