What’s an annual well-woman exam?
A well-woman exam is an annual checkup to assess your reproductive health. It’s an important part of your preventive care.
During your well-woman exam, Dr. Lopez-Sepulveda evaluates your reproductive organs and might conduct a Pap smear. A Pap smear is a cervical screening to check for abnormal, cancerous, or precancerous cervical cells.
He might also check for sexually transmitted diseases, conduct an HPV, or human papillomavirus test to check for cervical cancer, and perform a breast exam.
Dr. Lopez-Sepulveda recommends that women who are at a higher risk for certain diseases and conditions receive more frequent well-woman exams.
If necessary, you’ll also have a pregnancy test.
