Expect Comprehensive Gynecological Care at New York Fertility Services with our Well Woman Annual Exam
At New York Fertility Services, we know that fertility issues are just one component of women’s reproductive lives and health. Some fertility centers overlook general gynecological care for fertility patients because of the focus on pregnancy. Our physicians serve as both obstetricians and gynecologists and reproductive endocrinologists. We offer much more than fertility treatment for our patients – we treat the whole woman.
The Importance of the Annual Woman’s Exam
Well-woman checkups are an essential part of reproductive and whole health care, especially for women who hope to get pregnant one day. These annual woman’s exams can detect issues before they develop into a problem. Prevention and early treatment, important for overall wellness, can also optimize your fertility.
Components of the Annual Woman’s Exam
Annual exams for fertility patients are very similar to those for women not experiencing fertility challenges. Well-woman visits at New York Fertility Services are customized for each patient, depending on her age, individual risk factors and health history. They often include:
- Counseling about maintaining a healthy lifestyle
- Education about minimizing health risks
- Measurement of vital signs, weight and body mass index
- Screening for new health issues
- Physical examination, including pelvic exam and breast exam
Gynecological Conditions Discovered in an Annual Woman’s Exam Preserve Fertility

Gynecological Treatments for Fertility Patients
Our fertility specialists have all pursued intensive gynecological training well beyond the scope of fertility. Beyond the annual woman’s exam, we offer comprehensive treatment for most gynecological conditions that may or may not underlie fertility challenges for our patients.
Treatments range from medical management to minimally invasive outpatient surgical procedures, depending on the condition, severity and physician’s evaluation. In each case, your physician will discuss the treatment options and include you in the decision-making process.
