Womens' Health Matters!

We provide women's wellness services such as gynecological exams, contraceptive advice, and sexually transmitted infection testing. We also are accustomed to managing women's health problems such as painful periods, pain during sex, PCOS, menopausal symptoms, family history of breast or ovarian cancer (genetic screening), and pre-pregnancy planning.


Regular Exams Are Key!

Regular health exams and tests can help find problems before they start. They also can help find problems early, when your chances for treatment are better. As a woman, you need some special exams and screenings. During your checkup, your health care provider will usually do:

  • A pelvic exam - an exam to check if the uterus and ovaries are normal.
  • A Pap test - a test to check for cancer of the cervix, the opening to a woman's uterus. Cells from the cervix are examined under a microscope.
  • A clinical breast exam - to check for lumps and other changes.

Charis Clinic may also recommend other tests, including a mammogram or a test for HPV.
