What Tests Can I Expect to Have in a Well Woman Screen?

 

Health screening can include a wide range of tests to assess the risk or status of many conditions. It is important to make the right choice. Many wellness screens cater for different ages and stages in life. For instance if you are in your 20s, you might like to consider a sexual wellbeing screen or if you are perhaps in your 30s and have not had children, an ovarian reserve screen. For more mature women, ovarian cancer or menopause health checks are a must. Some however are universal such as breast checks, smear tests and general health and wellbeing screens.
