Annual Preventative Health Screens:
Women should start having well women exams or pap-smears at the age of 21 or when they become sexually active. Annual exams consist of a physical exam, including a breast and pelvic exam. If you are sexually active, you will be screened for chlamydia and gonorrhea at your visit. You will need to arrive fifteen minutes early for your appointment, as there is additional paperwork that must be completed. On the day of your appointment, you will be escorted to an exam room. After the exam, you will have the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have regarding the exam, as well as any other concerns.
