Until recently, women’s healthcare predominately focused on reproductive issues while medical research largely ignored other critical healthcare areas. Now, however, much attention is being placed on specific health issues affecting women, such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, and osteoporosis.

Women are now taking more responsibility for their own health and health education. Due to heightened awareness of disease prevention and healthy lifestyle choices, women are living longer, healthier and more fulfilling lives. Also, in partnership with their doctors, many women are becoming active managers of their own healthcare.

When to Visit Your Gynecologist

You should visit your gynecologist once a year for different health screenings. Not every trip to the gynecologist needs to be the same. While it is good practice to receive a general exam once a year, if you do not have a high risk of breast or cervical cancer you will only need a pelvic exam and Pap smear every 3 to 5 years, depending on your age and medical condition.

Talk with your gynecologist about how often you should receive gynecological exams. Many physicians have different opinions on this issue, so it is important that you SPEAK UP to let your doctor know what you’re comfortable with.
