In brief: Annual exams

Annual gynecological check-ups include a breast exam to feel for lumps as a breast cancer screen.
The pelvic exam screens for stds, infections, vaginal lesions, and cervical cancer. It also tries to make sure the uterus and ovaries feel normal in size. It can be a time to make sure your periods are normal and to discuss fertility concerns, period problems, and symptoms of menopause.
