As the old adage goes, prevention is better than cure. It is always better to prevent a condition or disease than cure it. And since being a woman means juggling many things like home, family and various other things, sometimes a woman tends to neglect her own health. The Well Woman Clinic at Jubesta Hospitals is an endeavour to promote health consciousness and well being in women.
At the Well Woman Clinic our doctors will often provide advice on:

Gynaecological problems

• Family planning

• Cervical smears

• Breast disease

• Menopause

In addition, you may be able to discuss your general health and have your urine, weight, cholesterol and blood pressure checked.
Your doctor will conduct the following during the Well Woman Exam:

• Breast exam: The breasts are inspected for changes in shape, skin texture and nipple discharge and lumps.

• Pelvic exam: to check for uterine or ovarian abnormalities and screen for cervical cancer

• Depending on age, a mammogram or bone density scan may be ordered.

• Depending on age, a pap smear and possibly a test for the human Papilloma virus (HPV) may be ordered.

Make prevention your priority with regular checkups. Don’t let your busy life style hurt your health!
