Women's Health Q & A
What are common health problems that women face?
Women have unique anatomy and can face some challenges that only affect women or some that may strike women more frequently than men. A few common female health problems are::
- Heart disease
- Breast, cervical, uterine, and ovarian cancer
- Sexually transmitted diseases
- Polycystic ovarian syndrome
- Uterine fibroids
- Urinary tract infections
- Urinary incontinence
It’s also common for women to suffer from anxiety and depression. Dr. Olusanya has years of experience treating a wide range of female problems.
What is a well-woman exam?
A well-woman exam is a great way to keep a watch on your reproductive health and catch any problems before they develop or progress. Most women begin having well-woman exams around the age of 21 and continue annually.
At a regular well-woman exam, Dr. Olusanya conducts a pelvic and breast exam, performs a Pap smear, does blood work, takes your blood pressure and weight, and screens your blood in the on-site laboratory.
Your dedicated doctor may inquire about your sexual history and experience, pregnancies, menopause, hormone fluctuations, infertility, and contraception.
What services fall under the umbrella of women’s health?

Should I be concerned if I bleed after my pelvic exam or Pap smear?
No. It’s completely normal to spot or lightly bleed for a few hours or even a day or two after your pelvic exam. You may also cramp a little, but it’s very mild and won’t keep you from going to school, work, or back to your regular activities. It subsides on its own within a few days.
