Visiting your doctor every year for a well woman exam is an important part of maintaining your overall health. An annual gynecological exam can provide early detection of many serious health conditions and help provide you and your family with peace of mind regarding the state of your health.

Your annual exam will cover basic medical information such as your weight and blood pressure, a physical examination including a breast exam and a pelvic exam, a pap smear, and screening for human papillomavirus (HPV). Your annual exam is an excellent opportunity to discuss any health care concerns with your doctor.
