What happens at a wellness exam?
The goal of an annual wellness exam is to evaluate a woman’s overall health. Dr. Martinez focuses her practice on preventive health and wellness exams for women of all ages, teaching them the importance of caring for their bodies through all stages of life.
Dr. Martinez will tailor your annual exam to meet your needs, depending on your age and sexual and medical history. At your wellness exam, Dr. Martinez and her team will typically:
- Review your health history
- Perform a general exam, including a breast exam
- Perform a pelvic exam or pap smear
- Evaluate medications
- Perform additional health screenings if necessary, like
- mammograms or STD checks
- Evaluate your risk of developing conditions, like diabetes,
- thyroid disease, and anemia.
Why are annual exams important for women?
Well-woman exams are important for women to stay healthy and informed about their bodies. These annual exams are a time dedicated to you, your needs, and your health. Regular exams can help to detect various forms of cancer and other conditions early, making them important for overall preventive health.
How should I prepare for an annual exam?
It’s a good idea to think about questions to ask Dr. Martinez and screenings you think you may need, such as diabetes or STDs. The well-woman visit provides a benchmark for your health each year, which helps both you and Dr. Martinez to identify when there might be a problem and help you get back to feeling your best faster.
