Annual Exams

Maintaining your well-being as a woman depends on regular screenings and exams so you and your provider have a better understanding of your health status. Annual exams also enable your healthcare professional to catch any minor issues and treat them effectively. Your annual gynecological exam is important for you as a woman at all stages of your life.

Find A Provider

Under 21:

A regular health exam should start as early as 13 or 14 years. Although a pap smear will usually not be done until age 21, a teenager should be screened for issues as she begins menstruating. Sexually active young women should also start to get regular screenings for diseases and other health concerns.

Ages 21-39:

An annual exam for a woman in her 20s and 30s will include a pap smear, a breast exam, and an overall screening for blood pressure, weight, and family history identifying any potential health risks. Reproductive health will also be addressed during these visits.

Find A Provider

Ages 40+

As a woman ages, her health situation will evolve as well. Regular mammograms should begin at this point. Other screenings for a woman in her 40s and beyond will include diabetes, colorectal cancer, and bone mineral density. Health during menopause and post-menopause will also be addressed during these visits.

Patient Reviews

Overall patient rating for UWH of The Carolinas:

Gynecological Problem Visit

Dr. Barrett and her nursing staff began working on my case, specifically to determine next steps in treatment plan. Dr. Barrett explains in detail her findings, giving time to ask questions, etc. She also is so strategic in her treatments and tries to verify exactly what needs to be done. Her confidence, plus all the other times she has treated me successfully, gives me a sense of security. I especially appreciate her write-up summaries to be read later by me and shared w/my family.
