Gynecological Exam

An annual gynecological exam is an essential component of every woman’s health routine.  Many women begin receiving an annual gynecological exam at the age of 21 or once they become sexually active.  Gynecological exams may address different issues or concerns at different ages and stages of life.  It is important that a female has a comprehensive reproductive anatomy and physical exam with their medical provider, as well as a time to ask questions and get answers, to optimize their overall health and provide preventive medical care and treatments.  Many women schedule an annual gynecological exam once per year but if you are experiencing any symptoms that you are concerned about or which you want to have examined it is important to get a gynecological exam as soon as possible.  Symptoms that you may need to schedule a gynecological exam include vaginal or pelvic pain, menstrual cycle irregularities, abnormal vaginal bleeding or discharge, lumps, sores, itching, tenderness, swelling, or unusual breast changes.
