An annual gynecological exam is an important tool for maintaining long term health and learning more about your body. This visit combines taking a detailed history and performing a physical exam, including a breast and pelvic exam. Your vital signs, weight and blood pressure will also be taken. The doctor will review any health updates, new medications, change in family history, and discuss healthy lifestyle, diet and exercise. In addition, several topics can be discussed, including menstrual history and/or problems, contraception, STD screening and prevention, pregnancy planning, and menopausal care. Your age group will determine which tests are necessary. Our practice takes pride in offering care to women throughout all stages of their reproductive and non-reproductive years.
