When was the last time you saw your OB-GYN? If it’s been more than a year, then you’re due for a well-woman exam. Why? A preventive check-up now helps you avoid illness later.

Here are three important things to discuss with your provider:

  • Menstrual history: Come prepared with the date of your last period.
  • Family health history: Discussing conditions that run in your family can help your provider identify risk factors and recommend preventive measures.
  • Preventive care screenings: Check mammograms, Pap smears, and blood pressure checks off your list.

Now that you know how to navigate the conversation, schedule an exam to check in on your health.
