Women undergo different sexual and reproductive health issues, from fertility to menstruation, contraception, endometriosis, cervical cancer screening, pregnancy, and menopause. Reproductive health isn’t merely the absence of infirmity/disease but a state of complete social, mental, and physical well-being. At Obria Medical Clinics, board-certified physicians, registered nurses, nurse practitioners, medical assistants, and support staff meet patients’ healthcare needs while walking them through life-changing choices for informed decision-making. They recognize that women’s health extends beyond reproductive services to adopt a holistic approach that builds patient relationships and improves their overall wellness in a supportive environment.
Aside from a missed period, women experience nausea, dizziness, fatigue, frequent urination, and breast tenderness during the early stages of pregnancy. If a woman’s pregnancy test reads negative but still experiences symptoms, they can visit the clinic for a urine or blood test, which has 97 – 99% accuracy results. Once completed, a physician offers a pregnancy verification document which is determined by the date of the patient’s last menstrual period. Additionally, they can perform an ultrasound to bounce sound waves off the developing fetus to confirm pregnancy, determine fetal age/due date, detect the heartbeat, diagnose abnormalities/gender, or locate the pregnancy.
Prenatal care at Obria Medical Clinics ensures patients and their babies are healthy thanks to extensive physical exams, urinalysis, and other lab work. The clinic schedules the first pre-natal visit 8weeks after a patient’s last menstrual period, where a nurse records their history to find risk factors that may affect pregnancy, discovers medication use, assesses lifestyles, and uncovers their travel history. The obstetrician or nurse practitioner walks alongside patients with respect, dignity, support, and educational health resources to prepare them for motherhood, breastfeeding, natural/C-section births, post-partum issues, and more. Patients considering an abortion receive evidence-based medical information about their options, empowering them to understand the short and long-term effects.
Obria Medical Clinics tests and treats chlamydia, HIV/AIDS, gonorrhea, HPV, and syphilis while educating patients on transmission methods, symptoms to look out for, preventive measures, and partner safety. They recommend well-woman exams once a year with annual checkups beginning at age 21 or when a woman becomes sexually active. The exam focuses on the female reproductive system and sexual health, allowing patients to ask reproductive questions, understand their bodies, and detect problems early. Patients can expect a physical examination, from a thyroid exam to a pap smear, breast exam, pelvic exam, and mammogram screening, depending on their age, health history, lifestyle, or risk factors.
Aside from women’s health, the clinic guides men on handling unplanned pregnancies, adoption, co-parenting, support during pregnancy, and other issues that impact their lives with their partners.
