About Female Health Checks

By the time a girl reaches the age of 13 years she becomes more aware of her health and well-being.  From the start of a girls first period to well after the menopause a women goes through a number of physical and mental changes.  Regular screening and check-ups can not only pick on future problems which may require follow-up but they can also put your mind at ease.  No one should have to worry “is this normal” get it checked.  Chances are you are worrying over nothing.  We can adapt your medical to suit whatever stage of life you might be in.

At the time of your appointment you will be asked to fill out a medical history questionnaire; nothing to hard just some general background such as any on-going medical conditions you might have, any medication you might be on at present and any surgery you may have had in the past, etc.

Following this the nurse will take your blood pressure, check a urine sample for signs of infection and take a full range of blood tests including:

  • Cholesterol

  • Glucose (sugars)

  • Blood count (iron levels, white cells, etc)

  • Thyroid function

  • Liver/Kidney function

  • Hormonal Profile

  • Others (depending on any personal or family history)

  • An ECG ( a test which shows the electrical activity of the heart and looks for any abnormalities) may also be performed if deemed necessary by the GP

After this you will have a consult with one of our doctors with a full physical examination and to discuss any issue that might be troubling you. At the end of this consult the doctor may decide on a secondary referral such as to a consultant to fully address any issues that cannot be taken care of at GP level or perhaps a mammogram or bone density scan depending on your needs.
