Having a yearly gynecological exam is an important aspect of responsible preventive health care and ensuring your physical and reproductive well-being. Most doctors now recommend an annual Pap smear for most women ages 21 and older. Women should have a gynecological exam every year whether or not they are due for a Pap smear. Avoiding routine yearly gynecological exams increases the risk for:
- Unintended pregnancy
- Pelvic infections
- Potentially delaying diagnosis of diseases such as ovarian and breast cancer.
