What is an annual exam?

An annual exam is a routine physical exam that includes a general health exam, breast exam, and pelvic exam. This kind of exam is also sometimes referred to as a check-up, annual pap, or preventive visit. You should begin seeing a gynecologist by the age of 21 for pap smears, or earlier if you are sexually active.
