An annual gynecologic exam (Well Woman visit) is a routine checkup to ensure that you’re healthy inside and out. It’s one of the most empowering things you can do for yourself because it can help detect certain health problems as well as prevent future ones from developing – building a foundation of health and wellness for all the stages of your life.

The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology recommends:

  • A woman’s first reproductive health visit should take place between ages 13 and 15 (this first visit is often simply a discussion between patient and doctor)
  • Annual breast and pelvic exams should begin at age 19
  • Pap tests should begin at age 21. Pap smears screen for cervical cancer. Even if you are not yet sexually active, you should still be screened for cervical cancer with an annual Pap test.

Your annual Well Women visit will include:

  • An assessment of your current health status
  • A clinical breast exam to check for lumps, skin changes, or nipple discharge
  • A pelvic exam to check your vulva, vagina, cervix, uterus, rectum, and pelvis, including your ovaries, for masses, growths or other abnormalities
  • A Pap test to screen for cervical cancer

Depending on age and stage of life, your Well Visit may also include:

  • Prescription for a mammogram (age 40 and up)
  • Family planning discussions
  • Contraception options
  • Screening for sexually transmitted diseases
  • Discussions about vaccinations

  Dr. Bernstein and the entire staff at For Woman Only obgyn are phenomenal. Dr. Bernstein makes the patient feel instantly comfortable and at ease. The office is organized and everyone is friendly and works hard to accommodate individual needs. I highly recommend Dr. Bernstein.  

Felicia W.

  Dr. Calvo is by far the best doctor I have ever seen. She cared for me during my pregnancy, delivered my baby girl, and is still seeing me postpartum due to hypertension issues. I had a high risk pregnancy for multiple reasons, and Dr. Calvo always made sure to explain everything in great detail to me and made sure I received the best care possible. She’s very personable and makes you feel like more than just another patient. The office is beautiful and the staff is very friendly and welcoming.
