What Happens During the Exam?

During your well woman exam, Dr. Evans will perform diagnostic assessments to check for common conditions and medical concerns. The following will take place when you have your well woman visit:

  • Health history analysis
  • Height and weight evaluation
  • Pelvic and breast exam
  • Pap smear, if applicable
  • Labs as indicated

How Often Do I Need an Exam?

No matter your age, you should schedule a well woman exam once a year to check for for overall health.  A separate workup can be done for at the same time for sexually transmitted diseases, menopause symptoms, and certain types of cancer.

This exam is especially essential for older women at an increased risk for certain cancers. If you have a family history of breast or ovarian cancer, you may need a well woman exam more often.

How Do I Prepare?

There is no extensive preparation required before a well woman examination. Try to schedule the exam when you are not menstruating, as this can affect your pap smear results.

If you are having blood work performed during your exam, you may need to fast for 8 hours beforehand. You should also bring any relevant medical information or new medical records for your file. Some patients also like to bring a list of questions or concerns to address with Dr. Evans during their appointments.
