Gynecology - Chester County Ob/Gyn Associates

General recommendations for women s health care advise that women get yearly examinations, even if they are feeling well and haven t noticed any problems. We recommend you have a breast exam, a pelvic exam and Pap test yearly. An annual GYN check-up serves a few purposes:

  • To detect current health problems, including breast abnormalities, pelvic infections, and cervical cancer
  • To evaluate risk factors for new problems which can develop
  • To monitor health changes over time
  • To prescribe and evaluate use of birth control methods (if pregnancy prevention is desired)
  • To provide guidance and teaching that will promote wellness and good health habits

Women should receive GYN exams starting at age 18, or whenever they begin sexual activity (whichever comes first). If a woman has normal Pap tests, normal breast exams, and no other problems regarding her reproductive health, she may only need a check-up once a year. We recommend additional visits if:

  • You have heavy or unusual vaginal discharge, or other signs or infection such as irritation/itching, sores, blisters, or warts
  • You are having menstrual problems such as heavy bleeding, severe pain, or skipped periods
  • You are bleeding or spotting between normal periods
  • You have pain or bleeding during sexual activity
  • You have frequent, unexplained pelvic pain
  • You are planning on becoming pregnant
  • Your sexual partner has been diagnosed with a sexually transmitted infection, or has symptoms of one
