About Well Woman Visits
A well woman visit, also known as annual gynecology exam, is an integral part of woman's health care. These visits encompass unique screenings, preventions, and recommendations based on your age and health history.
Healthcare guidelines are forever changing, which is why it is important to have these yearly visits with your healthcare provider. Well woman visits cover topics such as: general health, breast health, menstrual cycle, contraception and preconception needs, menopause, bone health, cervical/uterine/ovarian cancer prevention, safe sex promotion, sexual dysfunction, and more.
During these visits your BID Plymouth OB/GYN & Midwifery provider may listen to your heart and lungs, perform and teach a breast exam, and conduct a pelvic exam.
