– So a well woman exam is a annual visit that a woman should come in for. Basically what happens is you give your entire medical history. If you’ve been there a year before that, you kind of reiterate what
your medical history is and any sort of changes that’s
happened in the last year. So that’s pretty important. And then you have a breast
exam, a pelvic exam, and sometimes an abdominal
exam, heart-lung exam. And also a pap smear
is recommended as well. Although the pap smear
guidelines have changed to no longer every year, it’s still important to
get a full annual exam every single year.
