Annuals & Pap Smears
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
Scheduling and cost of an annual exam
Women’s Health uses Next Day Scheduling for annual exams. Contact us at 303-442-5160 to schedule an appointment.
At Women’s Health, annual exams are provided at low or no cost, with fees based on the patient’s income. Medicaid and private insurance are also accepted.
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.
