A well-woman exam is an annual checkup that focuses on women’s health needs; specifically, the needs revolving around the female reproductive system. Well-woman exams create the foundation of your health and wellness.
Your well-woman exams include the screenings needed to preserve your health. Those needs shift and change as you move through the phases of life, and your well-woman exams also evolve to meet your current circumstances.
For example, a woman in her 20s receives a Pap smear to screen for signs of cervical cancer and a breast exam to check for tissue abnormalities. She might discuss birth control and STD screenings during her visit, or ask how to best prepare her body for pregnancy and childbirth.
A woman in her early 50s might discuss changes brought on by menopause. She may have concerns about how to maintain a strong sexual connection with her partner, and might also want to learn more about stress management.
Regardless of where you are in life, your well-woman exam is an opportunity to support optimal health and wellness.
