Women’s wellness / annual exams

Annual Wellness Exams for Women are usually an annual gynecological (GYN) exam or a routine checkup to ensure you are healthy inside and out. It can detect certain health problems and prevent future problems. In addition, an annual wellness exam builds a foundation of health and wellness for your entire life.

What is included in an Annual Woman’s Exam?

  • A Pap test to screen for cervical cancer
  • A breast exam to check for lumps, skin changes, or nipple discharge
  • An assessment of your current health status
  • A breast exam to check for lumps, skin changes, or nipple discharge
  • A pelvic exam to check your vulva, vagina, cervix, uterus, rectum, and pelvis, including your ovaries, for masses, growths, or other abnormalities.

 

An annual wellness exam also includes valuable information on vaccinations recommended for your age and health risks. For example, you may be offered the flu shot, Tdap, and human papillomavirus (HPV) injection.

You will also be scheduled or at least recommended for an annual mammogram to rule out or detect breast cancer.
