Annual Exam Q & A

Why do I need an annual exam?

Most gynecologic problems don’t cause symptoms until they reach an advanced stage. By the time you start to feel like something is wrong, it’s too late to prevent the disease, and, in the worst case, the disease can’t be cured.

But when you go in for annual exams, you have the best chance of staying healthy. With regular checkups, Dr. Conyac can detect a problem early while it can still be treated or prevented.

The women who go to Glow Obstetrics & Gynecology for their annual exams look forward to their appointments for another reason: it’s their time to talk about any concerns and ask all their questions, whether they need help with weight loss, they want to stop smoking, or they’re thinking about having a baby.

What should I expect during my annual exam?

Your annual exam begins much as you’d expect. Like most routine exams, your vitals are taken and you’ll go over your medical history, especially any changes since your last visit. You’ll then complete a gynecologic exam, including a pelvic and breast exam.

Despite the predictable start to your exam, however, you’ll immediately notice that your visit is anything but routine. All the staff is interested in how you’re doing. They enjoy talking with you and they make it a point to help you feel comfortable.  

As you talk with Dr. Conyac, you’ll understand what it means to have a gynecologist who takes a natural approach to medicine and respects your individual integrity. Patients often say they feel like she truly cares as she gently talks with them about the health of their body, mind, and spirit. Women also appreciate the way Dr. Conyac searches to find the true cause of any problems they face.

What services will I receive during my annual exam?

The services you receive during your annual exam depend on your age and your health needs. Some of the services most often needed by women during their annual exam include: 

  • Contraception services
  • Pap smear
  • HPV screening and vaccines
  • STD testing and treatment
  • Preconception planning
  • Nutrition and diet counseling
  • Menopause management
  • Hormone replacement therapy

Dr. Conyac reminds you of any health screenings you may need, such as a bone density test, mammogram, or colonoscopy. When needed, your lab work and diagnostic ultrasound are done in the office.

Dr. Conyac also screens for a broad range of gynecologic and chronic health conditions and works together with you to create a lifestyle plan to lower your risks and maintain optimal health and wellness.
