Well-woman visits, also called gynecological or annual exams, are an important part of getting and staying healthy.
You should schedule your first visit in your mid- to late-teens (or earlier if health concerns arise) and continue visits annually or every other year, based on your physician's recommendation and your insurance plan.
What happens during your visit depends on your age and medical history. You may talk to your doctor about your period, especially if you're worried about it being irregular or painful; and if you're sexually active, you may talk about birth control or pre-pregnancy planning.
As you get older, your visits will include tests and referrals for things like mammograms or DEXA scans.
