An annual well-woman exam is a yearly appointment with your OB/GYN at Arizona Women’s Care. This exam is the cornerstone of your health care because it includes all the screenings, tests, and treatments you need to stay healthy.
Well-woman exams focus on your health needs as a female. During this exam, the Arizona Women’s Care team evaluates your health and helps you prevent illness. Your exam may include:
Well-woman exams always include a health history, focusing on reproductive system health.
You’ll typically have a general physical exam and external genital exam. Most women don’t need an internal pelvic exam, but you may need one if you’re experiencing symptoms like heavy periods, are pregnant, or at risk for a reproductive health condition.
Early disease detection leads to better outcomes, so Arizona Women’s Care recommends routine screenings that include:
Your doctor is always available to review forms of birth control, including the oral contraceptive, IUD and Nexplanon. The knowledgeable doctors can help you choose the best form for you to prevent a pregnancy. They can also help you begin your care if you are having difficulties conceiving.
You may need blood or urine tests to check for sexually transmitted infections. If you’re struggling with sexual wellness issues, like vaginal dryness or pain during intercourse, your doctor can recommend cutting-edge solutions like MonaLisa Touch® treatments. If you’re in menopause, you’ll discuss symptoms and hormone replacement options.
Arizona Women’s Care offers a variety of lab tests in the office for your convenience.
The Arizona Women’s Care team personalizes well-woman exams for every woman. They provide exams tailored for adolescent gynecology, adult gynecology, post-menopausal women, and other women at every stage of life.
The doctors recommend the first exam at age 17-18, and earlier if there is a medical concern or need for contraception.
