What are the benefits of well-woman care?
During your annual well-woman visit, you have an opportunity to sit and talk with your gynecologist about your medical history, current concerns, and future health goals.
The exam portion of your annual well-woman visit covers your general health, as well as any recommended screenings based on your age and medical history. This may include having a bone density screening for osteoporosis, a mammogram to check for breast cancer, or a Pap test to screen for cervical cancer.
After your exam, you may discuss your future health goals.

When should adolescents first visit a gynecologist?
As girls become adolescents, their annual wellness appointments should begin to include routine gynecological care. Most girls should have their first visit with a gynecologist when they are planning or are sexually active.
A girl’s first visit to the gynecologist touches on a variety of essential topics, including good health habits and why gynecology is an integral part of routine preventive care.
Besides receiving accurate information about sex, sexuality, menstruation, and puberty, early gynecological care helps educate adolescent girls on how to prevent sexually transmitted diseases as well as unplanned pregnancy.
The exam portion of the visit typically includes a general physical, breast exam, and external genital exam. Most girls don’t require a pelvic exam until they reach the age of 21.
