The Importance of Regular OBGYN Appointments

The Importance of Regular OBGYN Appointments

All too often women put their health and personal needs on the back burner for others. While your family and loved ones are important, the value of regular obstetrics and gynecology appointments is extremely real. A visit to the gynecologist is more than just a yearly pap smear — so much more! While a pap smear may be included in your “well woman check-up” appointment, your visit is not limited to just that screening.

An appointment with your OBGYN is a “check-in” with your body. Here at OBGYN Specialists of Columbus, Dr. Rees is a doctor that has years of experience helping women stay healthy and prevent potential risks.

So Much More Than A Pap Smear

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, all women should receive a “well woman check-up” at least once a year. Additionally, claiming that one day a year could add years to your life in the future. In recent years, the general rule of having a pap smear every year has been shifted to every three years (as long as normal results are present). This, however, does not mean women should stop seeing their gynecologist for routine check-ups and other specific female healthcare needs. Many women view their yearly exam as apart of their “self-care” routine, which is important to maintain your overall health. Furthermore, most prominent insurance companies include an annual “well woman” checkup in their plans, so take advantage and schedule your appointment.
