Annual Well-Woman Exam Q & A

Why Is An Annual Well-Woman Exam So Important?

A well-woman exam provides preventive health care. It catches potential health problems at an early stage while you can still take steps to prevent disease or while you can manage the problem effectively.

An annual checkup is the only way to catch the early signs of a health problem. Routine exams give your doctor at Women’s Healthcare Physicians of Naples the chance to track signs, watch for changes, and order lab tests as needed to be sure you’re not at risk for chronic diseases or gynecological conditions.

A well-woman exam also gives you dedicated time to talk with your doctor about any health and lifestyle concerns you may have. You can bring any topic up during a well-woman appointment, whether you have questions about weight management, aesthetic procedures, or family planning.

What Standard Services Are Provided At A Well-Woman Exam?

Your well-woman exam includes all of the basics you’d expect at an annual checkup: a review of your medical history and current health, a check of your blood pressure and weight, and a thorough gynecological exam. You may receive any or all of the following services:

  • Breast exam
  • Pelvic exam
  • ThinPrep® Pap Test for cervical cancer screening
  • Blood tests or urinalysis if needed
  • Testing for sexually-transmitted diseases
  • HPV vaccine
  • Family planning (birth control and preconception planning)
  • Menopause care

The team at Women’s Healthcare Physicians of Naples screens for chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, osteoporosis, and kidney disease. They also help you schedule recommended screenings for breast cancer, bone density, and colorectal cancer.

What Other Healthcare and Aesthetic Services Can You Receive?

You can schedule a variety of specialized services that aren’t typically included in an annual checkup. When you get several services at the same time, you can make one trip and get started on treatments or programs you may put off because it’s hard to find time in your daily routine. A few of the services to consider include:

  • Botox® injections to reduce wrinkles and lift cheeks
  • MonaLisa Touch® to restore vaginal health after menopause
  • Weight-loss management programs to support your weight goals
