Four Square Women’s Care Exam®

ANNUAL PHYSICAL EXAM

It is important for women, particularly, to have regular physical exams as part of maintaining their health. An annual wellness exam can last from 30 minutes to an hour, and will include a physical exam with a lipid panel screening for cholesterol, and a blood sugar test that can indicate pre-diabetes.

MAMMOGRAM

Ma’am Exams uses Hologic Digital Technology which is the most respected and reliable radiology equipment in the industry. We are dedicated to transforming breast cancer screening and diagnosis to ensure that we find even the most invasive cancers at the earliest possible stage.

Pap Test

A pelvic exam is not painful and only takes about 5 minutes. The PAP Test is done during this time so that the clinician can collect cells from the cervix to detect cervical cancer and the Human Papillomavirus (HPV).

CANCER WATCH® SKIN CHECK

Regular skin exams are especially important for people who are at higher risk of skin cancer, such as people with reduced immunity, people who have had skin cancer before, and people with a strong family history of skin cancer.

High blood pressure in women increases the risk of heart disease. It is estimated that 1 in 3 women has high blood pressure. The condition is dangerous because often there are no symptoms.

CONTRACEPTION

It’s easy to get confused by all of the birth control options that are available today. Based on a health assessment and your lifestyle preferences, a Ma’am Exams provider will recommend and prescribe either an IUD (or intrauterine device), birth control pills, a birth control patch, or other contraceptive method.

IRREGULAR CYCLES

If a woman's menstrual period is excessively heavy, prolonged, or irregular, it is called menorrhagia. Periods are considered heavy if there is enough blood to soak a pad or tampon every hour for several consecutive hours.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases

Many STDs are treatable including Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Syphilis, and Trichomonas. If you believe that you may have an STD please make an appointment as soon as possible to discuss your concerns.

THYROID

The thyroid gland produces a hormone that tells your cells how to metabolize energy. Hypothyroidism occurs when the body cannot access the hormone or if it doesn’t produce enough of it naturally. Hyperthyroidism occurs when the body produces excessive amounts of a certain hormone causing weight loss, heat intolerance, and a rapid heart rate.
