One of the best things you can do for your ongoing health is to see a gynecologist regularly. Annual gynecologic exams give you chance to develop a relationship with your doctor, and give your doctor a chance to catch small concerns before they become bigger problems.
A typical well-woman gynecologic exam includes:
- A review of your health history.
- A breast exam.
- An abdominal exam to check for masses or abnormalities.
- A pelvic exam and Pap test to check for infections and precancerous cells.
- A discussion of birth control needs and methods.
- Time to ask questions.
