Gynaecological well-visist

A gynaecological well-visit is a comprehensive assessment of your gynaecological health, tailored to your individual needs. It’s designed to provide you with peace of mind by providing early detection of gynaecological conditions that may affect women who are not showing any specific symptoms.These visits are an essential part of maintaining your overall health and nothing to be worried about or embarrassed by. Understanding why these routine exams are so important and what you can expect from them can help relieve some of the associated anxiety. 

We advise a once-yearly well woman check for women of all ages. 

Is this your first annual appointment? 

Most women should begin receiving annual gynecology exams by the age of 18 or after they become sexually active, but if you’re experiencing any gynecological symptoms before this, you should schedule an exam sooner. These symptoms can include irregularities in your menstrual cycle, unusual or severe vaginal or pelvic pain, abnormal vaginal bleeding or discharge, swelling, tenderness, sores, lumps, itching, or unusual changes in your breasts.

When scheduling your appointment, it’s helpful to let our team know if this is your first gynecological exam. We know that many women are nervous about these visits and will do everything we can to make this a stress-free experience for you. Some women prefer to have a family member or friend accompany them to their annual appointments, while others feel more comfortable with an additional nurse chaperone present. We encourage you to take advantage of either of these options if it helps you relax! 

Before a women's well-visit

You should not douche, use vaginal creams, or have sexual intercourse for 24 hours before your exam. If you start your period, you should reschedule. Outside of these preparations, there’s not much you need to do before your appointment.
