Are You A Well-Woman?
It doesn’t matter how old you are – or what stage of life you’re in. It’s important for ALL women to make an appointment with their obstetrician-gynecologists (ob-gyns) for a Well-Woman visit – once a year, every year.
Your Well-Woman visit is meant to ensure that you are in the best possible heath. Your ob-gyn will give you a health checkup – evaluating your blood pressure, weight, heart and perform a Pap test (if needed). In addition, your ob-gyn will review any over-the-counter medications you may be taking, talk to you about diet and exercise habits – and much more.
