What should I expect during a women’s health exam?
During a women’s wellness exam, friendly iClinic Atlanta staff members greet you. They check your pulse, weight, blood pressure, and other vital signs and review your medical history. Your provider completes a comprehensive physical examination, including a breast and pelvic exam.
If you’re a good candidate for a Pap smear, they insert a specialized instrument into your vagina and take a sample of cervical cells for lab analysis to screen for cervical cancer.
Your iClinic Atlanta provider might recommend you undergo a urine test, blood test, tissue swab, pelvic ultrasound, or other diagnostic testing procedure to detect or rule out specific women’s health issues.
What are my women’s health treatment options?
If you’re in good health, you probably don’t require any treatment after a women’s health examination. However, the iClinic Atlanta team offers:
- Prescription medications
- Lifestyle change counseling
- Family planning
- Birth control
- Sexual health counseling
- Truvada® prescriptions
- Further diagnostic testing
- Specialist referrals

Birth control options available at iClinic Atlanta include NuvaRing®, patches, pills, shots, and hormonal birth control. Your provider works with you to develop a treatment plan that’s right for you, and monitors your health over time to reduce your risk of common women’s health concerns.
How often should I schedule a women’s health exam?
Schedule a women’s health exam with the iClinic Atlanta team every year or if you experience new or unusual symptoms, are at risk of STDs and other sexual health problems, need birth control, or have concerns about your overall health and wellness.
