What it is

To remain healthy, an annual woman’s health exam is recommended. The exam is an important check-in with your provider to discuss both your physical and emotional health throughout all stages of your life.

During your visit, you and your provider may talk about these topics at various ages:

Ages 19-39:

  • birth control
  • sexually transmitted infection screening
  • pregnancy planning
  • vaccinations
  • menstrual issues
  • diet, exercise, and healthy weight

Ages 40-64:                       

  • symptoms of menopausal transition
  • mammography
  • colon cancer screening
  • long-term birth control options
  • diet, exercise and healthy weight
  • pelvic floor and incontinence issues

Ages 65 and older: It is recommended that you start seeing a family medicine or internal medicine physician for your annual exam around this time.

  • mammography until age 75
  • complications of menopause
  • bone mineral density screening, breast exam and pelvic exams—dependent on your specific needs

What to expect

Your annual exam will include:

  • a complete physical exam including breast and pelvic exams
  • a check for diseases or problems you might not be aware you have
  • health screenings, such as blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes and depression
  • social history, including smoking and drinking
  • age-specific topics

The frequency of a Pap test is individualized and dependent on your history and risk factors.

Good to know

An annual exam is a great opportunity for you to ask questions, too. These 10 questions are especially important for women in their 20s and 30s to ask:

  1. Do I need any vaccinations or booster shots?
  2. How often do I need a Pap test?
  3. Do my weight, diet or behaviors put me at risk for heart disease or diabetes?
  4. How much exercise should I get?
  5. Am I using the right kind of birth control for my needs?
  6. Should I make any changes before getting pregnant, such as taking folic acid supplements or switching a medicine?
  7. Should I be screened for high cholesterol, high blood sugar or high blood pressure?
  8. Do I have any suspicious moles or skin growths?
  9. Does my family's health history raise any concerns?
  10. Am I healthy enough to get pregnant?
