Well Woman Exam Q & A

What is a well-woman exam?

Dr. Esiely offers well-woman exams designed to address your specific health care needs. These appointments enable him to:

  • Recommend immunizations
  • Evaluate your general health
  • Discuss your personal and family medical histories
  • Record your vitals like weight, heart rate, and blood pressure
  • Assess your risk of conditions like high cholesterol, heart disease, and diabetes

Besides your physical exam, Dr. Esiely also offers services that include temporary or permanent forms of birth control, anti-aging treatments to rejuvenate your skin, and preventive gynecology care such as cervical cancer screenings, menopause management, and Votiva vaginal rejuvenation.

Why do I need a Pap smear?

To prevent and treat cervical cancer effectively, you need to have regular Pap smears, or Pap tests. This test is performed during your pelvic exam.

You should begin having Pap smears regularly at age 21, or when you start engaging in sexual activity. Your regular well-woman pelvic exam also screens for uterine and ovarian abnormalities, breast cancer, and sexually transmitted diseases.

How is menopause managed?

In the years leading up to and following menopause, you experience a loss of estrogen. This imbalance in your hormones can lead to a variety of unpleasant symptoms, including:

  • Hot flashes and night sweats
  • Vaginal dryness and decreased libido
  • Mood swings like anxiety and depression
  • Weakness (laxity) of the vaginal tissue

Dr. Esiely works closely with you to address your hormonal imbalance through a combination of traditional and alternative treatments for menopause. These might include medications, supplements, dietary changes, or exercise.

For issues associated with thinning or weakening vaginal tissue, Dr. Esiely offers Votiva vaginal rejuvenation.

What is Votiva vaginal rejuvenation?

Votiva is a noninvasive, nonsurgical laser therapy used to rejuvenate your internal or external vaginal tissue experiencing laxity or weakness.

Your vaginal tissue can grow thin, loose, or weak for several reasons, including childbirth and menopause. This laxity can lead to several adverse side effects, including:

  • Vaginal pain or discomfort
  • Loss of vaginal sensitivity
  • Decreased vaginal lubrication
  • Urinary incontinence (leakage)
  • A wrinkled or saggy vulva or labia
  • Labial hypertrophy (enlarged labia)
  • Reduced sexual function and pleasure

Dr. Esiely uses Votiva’s subdermal thermal energy to gently restore blood flow, firmness, and sensitivity to the vaginal tissue.
