With the fresh start of a new year, now is the time to set goals for a healthy, happy, and prosperous future! That includes taking control of your own health and well-being. 

 

Cache Valley Women’s Center at the Lodge in Logan, Utah provides all of your OB/GYN needs, including annual examinations. 

 

So why does it matter to set aside time for your annual exam? What can you expect during your visit? Let’s take a look at the answers to these questions and more. 

 

The Importance Of Annual Examinations With Your OB/GYN

 

A well-woman visit, or annual exam, takes place with your caregiver once a year. The main purpose is for you to ask questions, learn more about your body, and learn what steps you need to take to become a healthier, happier you. 

 

First, we start with the basics. That includes taking your vitals, height and weight, and performing a physical exam. We’ll also sit down with you for a conversation about your current lifestyle, family health history, diet, questions, and concerns. 

 

For patients over the age of 21, and for younger patients in some cases, we also conduct pelvic and breast exams. Routine breast exams are crucial for detecting breast cancer early. Checking reproductive organs and conducting a pap smear is critical for detecting any health threats like ovarian cysts, sexually transmitted infections, and certain cancers.

 

A pap smear consists of gathering cells from your cervix using an extended swab and is recommended every three to five years. And don’t worry—for most women, these procedures are quick and painless. 

 

As part of your annual exam, we also offer vaccines, including Gardasil for HPV—the virus known to cause certain cervical and uterine cancers. 

 

Schedule Your 2021 Annual Exam

 

Whatever your health questions, needs, or concerns, we’re here to address them as part of your annual examination. Start 2021 off on the right foot by taking control of your health. After all, we believe you’re worth fighting for!

FOR OUR PATIENTS AND THEIR FAMILIESInformation Regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

The Cache Valley Women’s Center remains committed to providing high-quality and compassionate care while ensuring the safety and well-being of our patients and staff. As our knowledge of COVID-19 grows, we look at everything we can do to keep our communities healthy. This requires frequent updating and revising of our policies.

Patients are allowed to bring ONE person to ALL visits.

AS A REMINDER:

  • This person needs to be over the age of 18 or a newborn baby in a carrier.
  • Please make arrangements before your appointment (this includes walk in visits for any blood work being done) for your children who are under 18.

Although masks are no longer required, they are still encouraged during your visit—especially for those who have not received the COVID-19 vaccine.

For the safety of our patients and staff, we ask that anyone experiencing flu like symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat, loss of sense of taste or smell, or muscle aches and pains to please call and reschedule your appointment. For those who have tested positive for Covid-19, please reschedule your appointment 14 days out from your first day of symptoms. If you still have symptoms at that time, you will be asked to wear a mask to your appointment, regardless of vaccination status.

We are continuing to follow social distancing guidelines. If our waiting room exceeds the amount we feel comfortable with at any time, you may be asked to wait in your car and we will text or call you when we have a room ready for you. Thank you for being so patient and understanding with our many changes in policies. Our main concern is always the safety of our patients and staff and we will do our best to keep everyone healthy, happy, and comfortable while in our office.

We will continue to exercise caution and encourage best practices for the safety of our patients and staff. There will be hand sanitizer readily available in all areas and frequent and proper hand washing. We will also continue to clean and sanitize our waiting room, exam rooms, checkout area, and other patient care areas. Essential PPE and masks will still be available for our patients upon request.

Please do not hesitate to call our office at (435) 753-9999 with any additional questions or concerns. We truly appreciate you and your patience with us during this time.

Sincerely,
