  • HOW OFTEN DO PAP SMEARS NEED TO BE DONE?
    Pap smears are an important part of women’s health care and should be done regularly. A pap test looks for abnormal cells of the cervix that could lead to cancer. The test is done by taking cells from the cervix with a brush. The frequency of pap smears depends on a woman’s age, medical history, and other factors. Most women ages 21 to 29 should get a pap smear every three years. Women ages 30 to 65 may be able to extend the interval to five years. Women with certain risk factors may need more frequent testing or additional tests. It is important for women to discuss their individual needs with their health care provider in order to determine how often they should get a pap smear. Visit Stamford Health’s OB-GYN page for more information on services and appointments.
  • HOW OFTEN DO MAMMOGRAMS NEED TO BE DONE?
    Mammograms are an important tool for the early detection of breast cancer. For women over the age of 40, it is recommended that they have a mammogram annually. Women who have certain risk factors for breast cancer may want to talk to their doctors about starting screening at an earlier age. It is also important for women to be aware of any changes in their breasts and to consult with their doctor if any changes occur. Visit Stamford Health’s Breast Center page for more information on mammography services and appointments.
  • I’m pregnant. What are my next steps?
    If you suspect you may be pregnant, talk to your doctor to schedule your first prenatal appointment. If you don’t currently have a doctor, you can book an appointment with one of Stamford Health’s board-certified obstetricians.

    Stamford Health also offers an Early Pregnancy Assessment program at the Women’s Specialty Center. Prenatal care is an essential part of ensuring a healthy pregnancy and delivery. It is important for pregnant women to receive regular checkups from their health care provider in order to monitor the health of both mother and baby. During these visits, health care providers will provide information on nutrition, exercise, medications, and other lifestyle choices that should be taken into consideration during the pregnancy. Additionally, they will recommend tests and procedures that are important for monitoring the health of both mother and baby. By following these guidelines, pregnant women can ensure that they receive the best possible care during their pregnancy.
  • WHEN SHOULD A WOMAN HAVE HER FIRST GYNECOLOGICAL VISIT?
    It is important for women to have regular gynecological visits to ensure their reproductive health. Stamford Health recommends that women should have their first gynecological visit around the age of 13 to 15. During this visit, a gynecologist will evaluate a woman's overall health and provide information on all concerns related to women's health. Additionally, it is important for women to continue having regular gynecological visits throughout their lives in order to stay up to date with any changes in their bodies or reproductive health.
