Typically, you should have your first well woman exam between the ages of 13-15 but no later than the age of 21, even if you’re not sexually active. What happens during a well woman exam?
At a well woman exam, Dr. Otuyelu-Garritano checks your blood pressure, height, and weight. She asks you questions about your period and sexual history and habits.
Dr. Otuyelu-Garritano doesn’t perform STD testing at your well woman exam as part of the standard testing. If you fear you may have an STD, you may want to ask about an STD screening during your well woman visit, though. The test doesn’t take long and just consists of Dr. Otuyelu-Garritano taking a swab of your vaginal discharge or a sample of your blood, depending on the STDs you want her to test you for.
Vaccinations aren’t part of your routine well woman exam. You must ask for any vaccinations like the HPV vaccine during your visit, though.
