The specifics of your annual exam may depend on many factors, including your age, medical and gynecological history, and personal health concerns. However, you can expect a comprehensive evaluation from the women’s health experts at Thrive Wellness Center For Women.

During your annual exam, your provider asks detailed questions about your health, medical and family history, gynecological history, sexual history, diet, exercise habits, and daily stresses. Then, your provider conducts a physical, breast, and pelvic exam.

Based on the information gathered during your exam, your provider may request various health screenings to further assess health and risk of disease. After gathering all the information needed to assess your health, your provider at Thrive Wellness Center For Women spends time reviewing your health and talking to you about the steps you can take to improve health and wellness.
