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. Women who are sexually active will be screened for chlamydia and gonorrhea at their visit. Women should arrive fifteen minutes early for their annual exam appointment in order to complete some additional paperwork. On the day of the appointment, women will be escorted to an exam room. After the exam, women will have the opportunity to ask any questions that they may have regarding the exam, as well as any other concerns.
