Who should have the well woman exam?

It is important that you have exams regularly so that any problems you may have can be treated early, when they are easier to cure and have caused less damage.

  • If you are sexually active or over the age of 18, you should have a well woman exam once every year.
  • You may need more frequent exams if you plan to become pregnant soon, have a history of sexual health problems, or have a mother or sister who developed breast cancer before menopause.
  • You should have an exam immediately if you detect a lump or other unusual change in your breast or have symptoms of a sexually transmitted disease (see Sexually Transmitted Disease).
  • You should have an exam before starting on hormone therapy if you are menopausal.
  • You should have an exam immediately if you are experiencing bleeding outside of your normal menstrual period.

"We have a special needs daughter who needed her foot looked at. Thankful that Affinity accepted her Medicaid first of all. Staff was nice, did not have a long wait, doctor was knowledgeable and understanding with our daughter, which means a lot. She was able to get x-rays done on her foot and received the results before we left. A great place to go on short notice."
"Facility was very clean. Very short wait. The doctor and x-ray tech were great!!"
"Fast and friendly. Was in and out in about an hour, and the PA and nurses were great. Much better experience than the ER."
"The Affinity care clinic in Galveston was wonderful. I walked in Memorial Day (without an appointment) and was seen by a very courteous and helpful staff. I highly recommend them."
"My experience at this urgent care facility was a pleasant one. I brought my daughter in due to an allergic reaction. The staff members there were awesome!"
