Frequently asked questions

How to get women's health treated online?

We at HealthTap believe different bodies need different types of focused healthcare, which is why we made women's healthcare one of our priorities at HealthTap. Unfortunately, not every woman can access in-person care at a women's health center when needed, especially after hours (because health issues are rarely convenient).

With an easy-to-set-up telehealth appointment, an experienced women's health doctor can help patients manage menstrual issues (including premenstrual syndrome and menopause), treat certain types of infections (including vaginal yeast and urinary tract infections), and even prescribe birth control pills online as well as discuss contraceptive care and management.

Patients can also keep in touch with their board-certified HealthTap primary care doctor by text messages after their telehealth appointment (with responses within one business day).

Women's health issues that can be evaluated at HealthTap by one of our online Family Medicine or Internal Medicine doctors include:

  • Acne
  • Anti-aging concerns
  • Birth control pills
  • Hair loss or excess hair
  • Rosacea or other rashes
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
  • Sexually transmitted infections (some types of STIs)
  • Bladder infections (UTI treatment)

Does HealthTap have an app to help treat women's health?

At HealthTap, women of all ages (including new patients) can access women's health care both through our website or with just a quick download on a phone or tablet.

Once signed up, our telehealth app will connect patients with doctors licensed in their state, showing their available appointments dates and times. After the initial telehealth appointment, patients can also choose to continue seeing that provider or have the option to switch to someone else.

Our virtual urgent care providers can help treat many immediate women's healthcare needs seven days a week — visits are generally available within minutes.

HealthTap helps to literally provide on-demand healthcare when it's needed — we believe healthcare should be a right, not a privilege.

Can an online doctor treat a UTI?

UTIs are one of the most common women's health issues. HealthTap's knowledgeable providers are happy to help diagnose urinary tract infections (UTIs), order necessary lab tests, and treat symptoms appropriately.

Most UTIs will need to be treated with an antibiotic. Antibiotics for UTIs are dependent on the type of bacteria present and commonly include options like ciprofloxacin and sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim.

Patients will need to select their preferred pharmacy on the HealthTap account page or patient portal. If an antibiotic is required, selecting a pharmacy beforehand can make sure it can be quickly prescribed.

What type of doctor should I see for menstrual period problems?

Periods can be an unpleasant part of life, even when they occur regularly. For those whose periods have gotten longer, heavier, or more painful than usual, or those who are missing them entirely, help is available.

One of our knowledgeable and experienced women's health doctors can help treat and manage menstrual problems, offering the best care possible all without having to leave the house.
