Annual Well Woman Check Ups

Most experts agree that by evaluating you on a yearly basis, your gynecologist can better determine if there are any issues you need to be concerned about. Depending on your age, there are certain steps that will go into every visit, including:

  • Evaluation and counseling
  • Vital sign check
  • Immunizations (if required)
  • Body mass index check
  • Breast exam (when indicated)
  • Pelvic exam (when indicated)

Recent guidelines call for pap smears every three years. Women with an average risk of breast cancer should have annual mammograms between the ages of 45 and 54. After that, they can have screenings every two years. Breast exams, either from a medical provider or self-exams, are no longer recommended by the American Cancer Society, unless indicated. Patients younger than 21 years old do not usually require a pelvic exam.
