    Have you heard of WPSI?

    WPSI stands for Women’s Preventive Services Initiative. WPSI is a group of experts in women’s health that make recommendations based on scientific evidence. Most insurance plans are required to cover WPSI recommendations without out-of-pocket costs. WPSI believes that the health and well-being of every woman is important.

    WPSI currently has recommendations for care around the following topics:

    1. Breastfeeding
    2. Screening for breast cancer
    3. Screening for cervical cancer
    4. Screening for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
    5. Screening for interpersonal and domestic violence
    6. Screening for gestational diabetes (diabetes during pregnancy)
    7. Screening for diabetes mellitus after pregnancy
    8. Contraception
    9. Counseling for sexually transmitted infections
    10. Well-woman preventive visits
    11. Screening for urinary incontinence(inability to control yourself from voiding – wetting your underwear)

    I would encourage you to list the topics that you want to address with your health care provider and talk to your provider. If you want to know what questions to ask, check out the website.

    They suggest before going to your health care provider, you may consider answering the following questions:

    What is important to me?

    What is working well with my health?

    What is not working with my health?
