Reproductive health is essential for a healthy body and mind. Unfortunately, only half of the women globally have a yearly gynecological check-up. You can maintain your health and know your body through essential gynecological exams.
Many times, diseases are detected early through yearly exams. This is especially true for STDs in females because we are often asymptomatic. During an annual gynecological exam, the doctor will recognize symptoms such as discharge and other telltale signs of infection you may not know.
Your height, weight, blood pressure, pulse, and temperature will be taken during the exam. You will be given a pelvic and breast exam, a PAP smear, and an internal exam will be done. The thorough exam alerts your doctor and you to things that could be going on in your body that you are not aware of.
It is also a great time to ask questions, update birth control, and talk about symptoms you may be embarrassed to ask friends and family.
The most important reason for a yearly exam is early detection of cancer in the reproductive organs. Early detection leads to the best outcomes. Since 1940, Cervical cancer has decreased by 70% just from women having annual gynecologist exams!
All girls should have their first gynecological check-up between thirteen and fifteen or earlier if they begin menstruating.
This exam gives the doctor a baseline for future exams. It also ensures you get the correct information about self-breast exams, sexually transmitted diseases, and birth control information, and it allows you to ask questions that may be embarrassing to ask someone else.
Understanding menstruation and birth control helps reduce teen pregnancy. All girls and women should know how to do a monthly breast exam.
Early reproductive self-care leads young women to be comfortable with their bodies and make the best birth control choices as they have their first sexual encounter!

Suppose you are having pain during or after intercourse, vaginal bleeding between periods, discharge from your breast(s), have found a lump during your monthly self-breast exam, or you suspect you have a urinary infection, make an appointment.
The doctor will do an internal exam, run some tests, and possibly do a PAP smear. If more testing is warranted, they will explain why and treat you accordingly.
As women age, you will need exams that reflect your health, such as pregnancy or menopause.
While yearly gynecological check-ups are essential, as a woman, you need to understand what is going on in your body, be comfortable with yourself, and do your monthly breast exam. Call your gynecologist as soon as a problem arises!
