Preventative care is a crucial part of your health and wellness. Depending on your age, sex and development, the kind of preventative care you need can vary throughout your life. It can span all parts of your well-being, including physical and mental health, exercise and physical activity, diet and education.
In general, you should visit your doctor at least once a year for a preventative check-up. These annual visits are proven to reduce the risk of diseases like cancer, heart disease, diabetes and stroke. They can also help entirely prevent or delay the onset of some conditions, keeping your personal healthcare more manageable.
What Is OB-GYN Preventative Care?
At Mile High OB/GYN, our preventative care focuses on women and their health in the areas of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive wellness. This covers a wide variety of services, including:
- Pelvic exams.
- Pre- and post-natal care.
- Breastfeeding education.
- Pap smears.
- Exploring your diet and exercise habits.
- Contraceptive counseling.
- STD testing, including HIV/AIDS screening.
We will also address any other concerns you might have about your health and assist you in finding the provider or providers who can best help you on your wellness journey.
Does My Health Insurance Cover My Visit?
Yes. If you are visiting a provider who is in your insurance plan’s network, preventative visits will probably be covered with little to no out-of-pocket expenses to you. This is because insurance providers understand the value of an annual examination in preventing further, more expensive issues in the future.
Because the female reproductive system is internal, it’s often only through specialized testing that doctors can discover minor abnormalities that might otherwise continue to go unnoticed. That is why it is absolutely essential to schedule an appointment with your gynecologist at least once every year for a checkup — and more often if you feel something is wrong.
