Preventive Care

The annual wellness visit involves more than the yearly gynecologic exam

Throughout a woman’s life, her body and healthcare needs are continually developing and changing, from adolescence to menopause. At Women’s Health Institute, we’re here to support women through each stage, and answer your questions along the way. Your San Antonio OBGYN can help with everything from family planning and pregnancy care to menopause management. As a result, we will focus on big-picture planning during your annual wellness visit and yearly gynecological exam.

We provide well woman exams in a comfortable environment

Our team knows how important it is to offer well woman visits in a supportive and friendly environment. We recommend that young women schedule their first visit at age 18, or earlier if there are specific issues or problems.

These annual wellness visits will continue throughout a woman’s life. Our experienced doctors and nurses strive to create a safe and nurturing place for our patients. We want them to feel comfortable discussing their health concerns and having their yearly gynecological exams.

Helping you make healthy choices for life

Annual exams are the foundation of a woman’s total wellness. This is the ideal time to discuss areas in your life that can influence your current health and future well-being.

Your San Antonio OBGYN can also offer advice and assistance with specific women’s health issues.

  • Nutrition and exercise
  • Stress management
  • Sex and sexuality
  • Smoking
  • Drug and alcohol use
  • Depression
  • Domestic violence

Preparing for pregnancy as part of the annual wellness visit

For many women, an annual wellness visit is a time to make plans for starting a family. Our San Antonio OBGYNs can help you make informed decisions about planning for a healthy pregnancy. A separate preconception appointment will allow ample time to discuss fertility planning and fertility treatment if necessary.

Women’s Health Institute is here to assist you with all your healthcare needs. Please contact us to schedule an appointment to start on the path to comprehensive well woman care.
