It’s no secret that women have unique healthcare needs that men don’t have to worry about. From reproductive health to menopause and beyond, women’s bodies undergo remarkable changes throughout their lifetime. That’s why it’s so important to have a healthcare provider who understands your needs and can help you navigate every stage of life.
A wellness exam is a yearly visit that includes a review of your health history, a physical exam, and laboratory tests as needed. This is an opportunity to discuss any concerns about your sexual health and get guidance on maintaining optimal health and wellness. Wellness exams generally include a few different components.
Your appointment starts with a discussion about your health history and any concerns you may be having. The medical provider will likely perform a physical exam, which may include a breast exam, a pelvic exam, and a Pap test. They may also order some blood tests to check for things like cholesterol levels and diabetes.
Based on your individual risk factors, your doctor may recommend additional screenings, such as a mammogram or bone density test. They may also discuss your need for vaccinations, such as the flu shot or HPV vaccine. Wellness exams are important for maintaining your overall health and avoiding health concerns.
