Well Woman Q&A

What is a well-woman exam?

A well-woman exam is designed to help you remain healthy. It’s an annual check-up that focuses on preventive care, including your gynecologic health. A well-woman exam typically includes counseling and education, screening tests, a gynecologic exam, a breast exam, and immunizations based on your age and health.

How can I get ready for my exam?

Your well-woman exam is the perfect time to bring up health concerns and ask questions about any changes you’ve noticed in your body. You may want to write down a list of questions to discuss, including:

  • Birth control options
  • How to prepare to get pregnant
  • Sexually transmitted diseases
  • Mental health issues, such as anxiety or depression
  • Menopause
  • Your safety and relationships
  • Healthy food choices
  • Being more active

What happens during an annual well-woman exam?

Your practitioner starts by taking a complete health and family history. You can expect to be asked a variety of questions about your overall health and well-being, including:

  • Your eating habits and exercise
  • Whether you drink, use drugs, or smoke
  • Your sexual health and sexual partners
  • Whether you’re taking any medicines, vitamins, minerals, or herbs
  • Your mental health history, including depression
  • Your relationships and whether you feel safe

A member of the medical team will take your blood pressure and your temperature, and measure your height and weight. Next, you’ll have a physical exam. You may be asked to undress from the waist down or to remove all of your clothes. You’ll be offered a gown to wear. Then, your practitioner at Osceola Gynecology typically performs the following tests and exams:

  • Pap test, to screen for early signs of cervical cancer
  • Breast exam, to look for unusual changes in your breasts and under your arms
  • Pelvic exam, to assess the health of your vagina and pelvis

If you haven’t had a well-woman exam in more than a year, it’s a good idea to schedule one as soon as possible to safeguard your health and well-being. Call today or schedule an online consultation with the dedicated, experienced providers at Osceola Gynecology.
