Woman’s Health Screenings Q&A

What are examples of women’s health screenings?

Women’s health screenings refer to various tests that look for health conditions common in females. Examples of women’s health screenings include:

Pap smear

A Pap smear screens for cervical cancer. For the test, your provider collects cells from your cervix and sends the sample to the pathology lab. Women start Pap smears at age 21 and repeat the screening every three years.

At age 30, women may include a screening for the human papillomavirus (HPV) with their Pap smear. Certain strains of HPV increase the risk of cervical cancer. 


A mammogram is a screening test for breast cancer. Women may choose to start getting mammograms at age 40, but should start by age 45.

Testing for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)

Anyone can get an STD. In women, undiagnosed and untreated STDs increase the risk of serious health problems like infertility and cancer. 

Women also need health screenings to check for diabetes (blood glucose test), high blood pressure (blood pressure reading), and high cholesterol (lipid test). 

Can I get women’s health screenings at my annual physical?

Your provider at Jurani Clinic can talk to you about the types of health screenings they perform at your annual physical. They can request bloodwork to test for common STDs and make referrals for you to get a mammogram and bone density test at your comprehensive physical.

For a Pap smear, you may need to schedule a women’s wellness screening. Your provider performs a Pap smear during a pelvic exam.

What happens after a women’s health screening?

Your provider at Jurani Clinic contacts you once they have the results of your women’s health screening. Some results are available right away, while others may take several days or weeks.

Negative results means you don’t have the disease. Positive results don’t necessarily mean you have the disease, but you may need additional testing to confirm or rule out a diagnosis.

Your provider spends time talking to you about the screenings, what your results mean, and what happens next.
