Have You Scheduled Your Well-Woman Exam?
Are you due for your well-woman exam? As the summer season approaches and many of the usual yearly demands slow down a bit (or not at all - who are we kidding), it is a great time to take control of your health.
If you have not had your annual yearly gynecological exam this year, now may be a great time to schedule your visit. This exam is tailored to monitor your health to make sure you stay healthy, as well as to detect any abnormalities in your health as early as possible.
The exam usually involves a Pap smear, pelvic exam, breast exam, in-house blood work and lab work, STD testing, blood pressure checks, a body mass index assessment, as well as the option to discuss birth control options.
The well-woman exam is important for monitoring your feminine health and is a great opportunity to connect with your provider to ask them any questions you may have about your feminine health. Additionally, important examinations are performed during this visit, which are essential for preventing and detecting gynecological issues and cancers such as breast cancer and cervical cancer.
