Annual Gyn Exam Q&A

What is an annual GYN exam?

Annual GYN exams (also called well-woman exams), are the foundation of excellent women’s health. These routine visits help you to receive the screenings you need to stay healthy, as well as insightful information about your health that can improve your daily quality of life. 

It’s important to see your primary care physician to stay on top of your overall health and wellness. Women have a distinct set of reproductive health needs, and well woman exams are the place to focus on those needs and deliver guidance and support for all aspects of your reproductive health. 

Why see a gynecologist if I’m healthy?

Preventive health is essential to maintaining optimal health and wellness. With annual GYN exams, they focus on checking for signs of common reproductive health problems to prevent complications. Dr. Rao performs a pelvic exam as a part of your well-woman visit, which allows her to visually inspect your vaginal and cervical tissues for signs of abnormalities. 

Pap smear testing can also be done during your pelvic exam. This simple test allows for early detection of cervical cancer and has played a central part in dramatically reducing the number of deaths from this specific type of cancer. 

The absence of disease is not the only focus in gynecologic care. All women deserve to have healthy and fulfilling sex lives that meet their personal preferences and needs. Dr. Rao can work with you to resolve numerous issues that can prevent you from fully enjoying this part of your life.   

What kinds of topics can be discussed during annual GYN exams?

Nothing is off limits when it comes to your well woman exams. Dr. Rao is here to help guide and recommend advice that can help you live your best life every day. By getting to know and trust her with your women’s health care, you’ll enjoy a welcoming environment in which you can ask any question or express concerns. 

Some of the topics you are welcome to discuss during your annual GYN exams include:

  • Heavy or painful periods
  • Pelvic pain
  • Painful sex
  • LGBTQ-specific concerns
  • Changes in sex drive
  • Menopause symptoms
  • Fertility care
  • Birth control

Of course, if you've noticed any changes in your reproductive or overall health since your last office visit, be sure to discuss those matters during your exam. The more information you share, the better able Dr. Rao is to customize your women’s health care plan.
