Women's Health

Get to know your primary care provider (PCP) or obstetrician/gynecologist (OB/GYN)

As a member of Tufts Health Plan, you can get an OB/GYN checkup once a year. Your PCP can provide this checkup, or you can choose to see an OB/GYN. Your yearly checkup is a good time to ask any questions and learn more about your health.

Important screenings

Cervical cancer can often be cured when it’s found early. Fortunately, it can usually be found at a very early stage through regular Pap tests. Women ages 40 – 74 should have a regular mammogram to help detect breast cancer early. Your PCP can tell you how often you should have Pap tests and mammograms based on your health and your family history.
