When should I schedule a women’s health appointment?

You should schedule a women’s health appointment at Copperfield Family Clinic once a year for preventive screenings, including breast exams and cervical cancer screenings (Pap smears), even if you don’t have unusual symptoms.

Preventive women’s health exams help Dr. Regina Ottan-Obi identify early warning signs of underlying health issues that affect your reproductive or general health.

You can also book a consultation if you have issues like pelvic pain and heavy or missed periods or if you’re exploring your options for birth control.

What happens during a women’s health evaluation?

During your women’s health evaluation at Copperfield Family Clinic, Dr. Regina Ottan-Obi reviews your personal and family medical histories and any symptoms you have.

She completes a physical and a pelvic exam to check your vagina and other reproductive organs for abnormalities. Dr. Regina Ottan-Obi can also collect cells from your cervix during a Pap smear to screen for precancerous changes or cancerous cells. 

Women over 40 and those with risk factors for cancer can get a referral for a routine mammogram. 

You might also need bloodwork to evaluate your hormone levels and thyroid function. Testing can identify underlying hormone imbalances that result from thyroid disorders or menopause.

If you’re interested in birth control, Dr. Regina Ottan-Obi can recommend methods like pills, patches, injections, or intrauterine devices (IUDs) to prevent unexpected pregnancies.

Dr. Regina Ottan-Obi discusses your treatment options to correct a hormone imbalance or address a reproductive health issue. She can also suggest lifestyle improvements, diet changes, and available weight loss programs to improve your overall health.
