Annual Exam Q & A

What is an annual exam?

At Physicians and Surgeons for Women, an annual exam is a women's wellness physical focusing on your health care needs. Your annual exam may include:

  • Pelvic exam
  • Clinical breast exam
  • Pap smear (If indicated by guidelines)
  • Birth control discussion or prescription
  • Lab testing as needed
  • Treatment planning as needed

You will also have a chance to update your recent health history and discuss your personal situation and private needs with your providers. Physicians and Surgeons for Women believe in personalized and patient-positive women's care. We build relationships to last a lifetime so you can always feel comfortable and confident about your health and future.

Why are annual exams so important?

Annual well-woman exams are important because they protect you today and prepare you for tomorrow. Physicians and Surgeons for Women specialize in all aspects of women’s health. In addition to preventative health care needs, our providers can address any women’s health issues that are concerning to you or are limiting your lifestyle.

Additionally, your providers perform a variety of routine preventive health screenings. Pap smears are an important test because they can raise the first alarm if you have abnormal or precancerous cervical cells.

If you have an abnormal pap smear, your provider can take immediate action, performing advanced digital colposcopy testing and planning treatment if necessary.

When should women have their first annual exam?

Physicians and Surgeons for Women welcome girls and women starting at age 14. In the early teen years, girls may not need a pelvic exam. Starting female care early will help young women to be aware of their bodies and learn how to protect them.

This first exam is exceptionally beneficial for girls because it gives them a chance to talk and learn about menstruation, sexuality, and other concerns in a welcoming, professional environment. It is also a good idea to establish a relationship with a provider. When the time comes for a physical exam, a young woman will be less apprehensive. She will be prepared. Starting care at an early age is the key to early detection and prevention of many female ailments.

Many women grow to know their providers well and stay with them for their lifetime.

If it is time for your annual exam and you want a welcoming and compassionate women's health provider, Physicians and Surgeons for Women are waiting to hear from you. Call the office for an appointment.
