A well-woman exam is a yearly exam you go to the gynecologist for to make sure you're healthy and while there, your doctor can inform you of preventative measures you can take to ensure you stay healthy. At your yearly well-woman visit, your doctor might ask you questions about your medical history and document your habits. You'll also get a physical exam and potentially set health goals for the future. If needed, your gynecologist might treat you for any conditions you have or provide relevant screenings, such as an HIV screening, a blood pressure screening, an alcohol misuse screening, and an STI screening, especially if you're sexually active. You might also receive contraceptive counseling, nutrition and diet counseling, and certain vaccines and immunizations.
It's important to get yearly well-woman visits to ensure you have a healthy pap smear, as well as good overall gynecological health. While you don't need to have a pap smear yearly, it's recommended that you get one every three years at minimum. Well-woman visits are the perfect time to ask questions or let your doctor know about any concerns you have about your health. If you've got a history of certain illnesses in your family that affect women, such as breast cancer, it's best to let your health care provider know so that you can get regular screenings.
