What to Expect During a Well Woman Exam

During a Well Woman Exam, your doctor should cover all the components mentioned above, which include screening, evaluation and counseling, immunizations, and laboratory testing. What happens during each part is described below:

  • Screening – a key part of the Well Woman Exam, which involves a physical exam. A physical exam includes a basic assessment of weight, height and other physical assessments, like a pelvic exam, pap smear, and breast exam. Your doctor will also discuss your medical history with you.
  • Evaluation and counseling – depending on age, your doctor will discuss various aspects of your life and provide guidance where needed. Topics up for discussion include fitness and nutrition, health and sexuality. Your doctor may also share information on the risks associated with your personal habits, preferred activities, or possible hazards relating to the work you do.
  • Immunizations – your doctor will administer any immunization shots required or recommended for your age.
  • Laboratory/other tests – urine and various blood tests may be performed to help detect any unseen abnormalities.

The exact services which your doctor provides may vary.
