Women's Health Q & A

Why is women’s health important?

Routine women’s health care is important for all women throughout puberty, their reproductive years, menopause, and beyond. Routine screenings and exams are beneficial to:

  • Help you get pregnant
  • Resolve hormonal imbalances
  • Detect and treat sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • Get started on family planning solutions
  • Undergo cancer screenings

Women also have a high risk of developing heart disease and bone loss (osteoporosis) with age. Routine well-woman exams can help detect issues early on, so your provider can get you started on treatment and necessary lifestyle changes.

Which women’s health services do I need?

At Nippon Medical Office, Koyanagi provides comprehensive women’s health services that are entirely tailored to your health and any concerns you may have. Common women’s health services offered at Nippon Medical Office include:

  • Placement of IUDs or birth control implants
  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing
  • Hormone replacement therapy (HRT)
  • Urinary tract infection (UTI) testing
  • Expanded blood panel testing
  • Referrals for mammograms

Koyanagi is dedicated to ensuring you receive the personalized women’s health care you need. To help prepare for your appointment, Koyanagi often recommends making a list of questions and concerns, making sure you know the first day of your most recent menstrual period, and transferring your medical records from other medical providers.

How often should I have a women’s health evaluation?

Regular women’s health evaluations should begin around puberty when a girl has her first period. 

If you’re in overall good health and don’t have any chronic or concerning conditions, Koyanagi usually recommends annual well-woman exams, which should be scheduled at about the same time each year. 

If you’re due for a Pap smear, try not to schedule your visit while you’re on your period since menstrual flow can affect lab results.

If you have a chronic health condition like diabetes or heart disease, you might need more frequent checkups at Nippon Medical Office (twice a year or quarterly). 

Of course, if you’re feeling ill, experience burning while urinating, having diarrhea, or you notice other acute health issues, you’re welcome to come into the clinic for a sick visit.
