Female Exam and Pap Smear

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This six-page illustrated handout educates women about the female exam and pap smear, which are regular health exams and tests they should have. It discusses the female pelvic exam to check for diseases of the vagina, cervix, uterus, and ovaries, the breast exam, and the pap smear, which checks for cancer of the cervix. The document provides a brief step-by-step explanation of what will happen during the tests, identifies when women should have their first pap smear, and clarifies that patients should ask their doctor how often the test should be done, based on age and health history.
