Annual Wellness Exams Q&A

What are annual wellness exams?

Annual wellness exams are yearly examinations by the team at Women’s Care of Beverly Hills. You should start getting them around when you become sexually active or after turning 18 (whichever comes first). Pap tests are not performed until age 21.

These examinations help you stay up to date on your sexual health and address any health issues that occur while they’re in their earliest stages. The team at Women’s Care of Beverly Hills checks your sexual and reproductive organs and your breasts for changes or abnormalities. 

Your annual wellness exams also allow you to bring up any questions or concerns about safe sex, birth control, menstruation, menopause, and many other topics related to your sexual, reproductive, or hormonal health. 

What do annual wellness exams include?

All annual wellness exams at Women’s Care of Beverly Hills include a pelvic exam after the team takes basic information like your height and weight, if you are comfortable with us doing so. They also go over your medical history. During the pelvic exam, you recline on an examination table as the team examines your pelvic organs. They also perform a breast examination. 

Other components of your annual wellness exams depend on your age. Some tests are only performed every few years, while others are age- or need-specific. You can get:

  • Pap smears at age 21
  • Referrals for a Mammograms
  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing
  • Birth control management
  • Pregnancy testing
  • Vaccinations and updates
  • Thyroid checks
  • Referrals for a Bone density scan
  • Peri menopause and menopause counselling and management

The team can also address minor issues during the visit, like urinary tract infections or pelvic pain. Be sure to mention any concerns or questions you’ve accumulated since your previous visit. But if you have a lot to discuss, be sure to book a separate appointment to allow your provider and you enough time to adequately address these important health concerns
