Women's Health Q & A

What should I expect during a women’s health visit?

With a focus on personalized care, Dr. Cortez-Sammons and the team at Transformation Health & Wellness make your visit relaxing and pleasant. They greet you warmly and escort you to a room where you can change into a plush robe.

The practice offers a broad range of women’s health services tailored to your needs. These services address health issues, such as:

  • Heavy, painful, or irregular periods
  • Menopausal management
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Endometriosis
  • Pelvic pain
  • Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
  • Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD)
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Estrogen Dominance

With an integrative approach to your overall wellness, Dr. Cortez-Sammons treats the most common women’s health conditions. Whether you’re trying to conceive, want to avoid a pregnancy, or are entering menopause, you can rely on her and the associates at Transformation Health & Wellness for:

  • Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT)
  • Contraceptive counseling
  • Pre-conceptual counseling
  • Early infertility counseling
  • Osteoporosis management

The practice also offers pessary devices to help treat pelvic organ prolapse or incontinence. A pessary is a soft, flexible device inserted in your vagina to help support your bladder, uterus, and other organs.

How can I prepare for my women’s health visit?

You might want to write down questions you’d like to ask Dr. Cortez-Sammons during your one-on-one discussion. For example, you may have noticed changes in your menstrual cycle, your breasts, or in your vaginal health and wonder whether those changes are healthy. She can answer all of your questions and perform any necessary tests to check that you are in optimal health or learn how to get you back to it.

What tests occur during a women’s health visit?

During your women’s health appointment, Dr. Cortez-Sammons often recommends specific screening and diagnostic tests. This may include a Pap smear, mammogram, or a DEXA scan to assess your risk of osteoporosis. A DEXA scan is a noninvasive test to measure your bone mineral density.

How often do I need a Pap smear?

Dr. Cortez-Sammons discusses with you how often to have a Pap test, which screens for cervical cancer. Current guidelines suggest the test for every woman beginning at age 21.

The frequency depends on your personal and family history. Most women between the ages of 21 and 65 only need to have a Pap smear every three years. However, if you have a history of an abnormal Pap test or family history of cancer, you may need more frequent testing.
