Why Women Should Have an Annual OB-GYN Examination, Queens, New York

Though you may not believe it, your annual OB-GYN exam plays a crucial role in your overall health. While it may seem silly to visit a physician when you feel perfectly healthy, the yearly well-woman exam provides you with the opportunity to discuss, prevent, identify, and address issues before they evolve into more serious conditions. Below, an OB-GYN physician from Medex Diagnostic and Treatment Center in Forest Hills, NY, discusses a few of the many reasons to schedule a yearly well-woman exam.

3 Key Reasons to Schedule an Annual OB-GYN Exam


ob-gynYour well-woman exam is an opportunity to raise questions or concerns you may have about your body in a confidential, compassionate, and caring environment. No subject is too taboo. As a physician who specializes in women’s health issues, your OB-GYN can help clear up any misinformation obtained through friends or online, while providing you with clear and concise answers to any and all of your health-related inquiries.

Birth Control

Birth control affects everyone differently. During the exam, you’ll learn about and discuss a variety of birth control options. Whether you’re considering going on the pill for the first time or are unhappy with your current birth control, your OB-GYN can help you find the option that’s best suited for you.

Breast Exam

Your well-woman visit allows for a thorough visual and physical examination of your breasts to inspect for abnormalities or indications of cancer. The exam increases the odds that changes and irregularities will be detected in a timely manner while serving as a key supplement to your monthly self-exam.  

As you can see, your OB-GYN visit goes well beyond the pelvic exam. If you’re due for your annual well-woman appointment, Medex Diagnostic and Treatment Center is the place to call.
