Why do I need annual exams?

You need annual exams to maintain good health. It’s a preventive exam that focuses on finding health issues before they become serious problems. 

Your annual exam is also a thorough evaluation of your total health. The information gathered also allows you and your provider to see how your health changes from year to year. 

It also gives you and your provider a chance to get to know each other better, improving the patient-provider relationship. The more comfortable you feel with your provider, the more likely you are to share your health concerns. 

I need a Pap smear. What happens during annual exams?

Annual exams at Naples Women's Center include a Pap smear, which is a screening test for cervical cancer. The gynecology practice performs thorough annual exams, including a physical, pelvic, and breast exam.

Your provider reviews your medical and gynecological history and asks about your family history. They inquire about your health concerns and goals for the year. Then, they perform the necessary exams to evaluate your health.

They do the Pap smear during the pelvic exam, which is an exam the team at Naples Women's Center performs to evaluate your reproductive organs. The breast exam screens for breast cancer. 

The team also runs lab work to screen for other health conditions, like a lipid profile to check your cholesterol and a blood glucose test to screen for diabetes. They test for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and may recommend a bone density test to check your risk for osteoporosis. 

What can I expect after annual exams?

After gathering all the necessary information, your provider at Naples Women's Center talks to you about their findings. They make recommendations to maintain or improve your current health, such as eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly, and finding healthy ways to manage stress.

You can also talk to your provider about specific needs or concerns you have about your health, such as birth control for family planning or managing menopause symptoms.

Your provider may also make recommendations for additional screenings, such as a mammogram for breast cancer or a colonoscopy for colon cancer.
