Being proactive about your health is important. Many problems that affect women cannot be detected without thorough periodic examinations by a health care professional. Whether you are sexually active or not, good gynecological care can prevent illness and discomfort.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends annual exams for every woman age 18 years and older. The gynecological exam allows a health care provider to assess normal development of reproductive organs and screen for certain health problems. It also provides an opportunity to talk with a clinician about any sexual health concerns.
