I am a 49 yr old female who hasnt been to doctor in over 18 months. What type dr should I see now & what tests/exams.... I have had no previous medical problems. Had annual well woman visits but feel i need to start taking better care of myself.

You

You should see an internal medicine doctor or a family practitioner yearly for a physical and any screening tests recommended for your age group and your specific health and family history. You should also see a gynecologist regularly for an exam and pap smear. They may need to do this every 1, 2 or 3 years depending on your health and family history. Below I've attached a helpful website on the recommended screening exams for women.

Dr. Jamal Mourad answered:

Is it necessary to have a yearly vaginal exam after having all internal female organs removed?

It's advisable

It depends on what the reason for your hysterectomy was. Generally speaking, if you are HPV negative and your PAP smears have always been negative, your risk for developing new HPV related disease in your 50's is low. An annual exam is advisable to evaluate many different things among them vaginal health, bladder and rectal support, breast exams, etc... So... although a PAP may not be necessary,

Does chlamydia show up on an annual female exam?

Only if tested

Women
Chlamydia testing can be performed with the same swab as taking a pap smear. Usually it's recommended yearly for women age 26 and younger. It's also recommended with any change in sex partner, possibility of exposure or persistent symptoms of infections without other cause.
