Well-Woman Visit

A well-woman visit is a visit with an OB/GYN. This doctor is trained in the health issues of women. You should plan this visit every year. Your doctor can suggest tests to check for cervical and breast cancer. Remember, the earlier you find cancer, the easier it is to treat.

Mothers, if your daughter is older than 14, consider taking her for an annual visit to an OB/GYN. They will check her growth towards maturity to make sure there are no problems. If you are not sure where to find one, call the customer service number on the back of your WellCare card.

Breast Cancer Screening

A breast cancer screening is an X-ray of the breasts. It only takes about 15 minutes. When cancer is found early, treatment is easier and the chances of survival increase. Different women have different risks. Be sure to talk with your doctor about the age you should start and how often you should have a screening.

In the United States, about 42,000 women die of breast cancer each year.

Your plan covers a breast cancer screening for you at no cost to you. Your role is just to get it done.

Chlamydia Testing

Chlamydia is a bacterial infection easily treated with antibiotics. About 3 million Americans are infected each year. It is most common in 14- to 24-year-olds. It can be found with a simple urine test. It is spread by sexual contact with someone who has chlamydia. You can’t get it from sharing food or drinks, kissing, hugging, holding hands, coughing, sneezing, or sitting on the toilet. If it is not treated, you can end up in the hospital.

Do you think you might have chlamydia? Please go to your OB/GYN. They are trained in dealing with it. They can do the test in complete privacy. Do not be embarrassed to ask.
