An annual exam is preventive healthcare at its best! It’s a once-a-year visit with a trusted female healthcare provider who will thoroughly examine you and screen for any health issues or abnormalities. This is an excellent opportunity for you to talk with one of our providers about any sexual or reproductive health concerns you may have and get advice on the right method of birth control for you. Our health care providers are experts in women’s healthcare and provide information and education that can keep you healthy and happy.
Services provided during an annual exam include:
- Review of your health history
- Pelvic exam and Pap smear (the pap smear checks for infection, unhealthy cervical cells, and cervical cancer)
- Breast exam
- Birth control counseling and supplies
- Evaluation of the need for additional health screenings such as sexually transmitted infections (STIs) testing
Immediate access to birth control
Typically, hormonal methods of birth control, such as the pill, are prescribed at an annual exam. However, a new patient can get a three-month supply of these methods with just a brief visit, and the annual exam can be delayed until a more convenient time. If you need immediate access to birth control and cannot come in to Women’s Health, we recommend using a condom until a brief visit can be scheduled.
How to Schedule an Appointment:
To schedule an appointment for either Boulder or Longmont, please call the main clinic line: 303-442-5160.
For most appointments, Women’s Health uses Next Day Scheduling.
To schedule an appointment, call us the business day before you would like to come to the clinic—Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday at 9am or Thursday at 2pm to schedule an appointment for the following day. To schedule an appointment for Monday, please call Friday at 9am. Call us early in the day for the best availability because appointments are scheduled on a first call, first serve basis.
If you experience an extraordinary situation where you cannot access our Next Day Scheduling, please call during business hours Monday-Friday to speak with a staff member.
Same-day and Walk-in appointments are available for Emergency contraception (the “morning-after pill”) and Birth Control refills only. Although no appointment is necessary, waiting time may be longer.
For all patients under 20 years of age
Teen patients are welcome to make an appointment during any of our family planning hours. For teens who prefer TEEN ONLY hours, visit the Boulder Clinic on Saturdays from 11-3pm or the Longmont Clinic on Mondays from 2-6pm. For more information on Teen Clinic services and pricing, see the Teen Clinic website.
