How do you feel about an annual exam? Scared off by the thought of a mammogram? Does it all make your stomach knot up? Are you avoiding these appointments altogether?

 

It’s normal to feel anxious when our bodies send us strong signals that all might not be well. In fact, nearly two-thirds of women *surveyed expressed some degree of fear and anxiety about their annual gynecological exams. Reasons include:

 

  • Feelings of discomfort
  • Embarrassment
  • Personal intrusion
  • Fear of finding a problem such as cancer

 

If this is your first, real experience with an annual exam or if you need to talk about contraception, irregular periods, or other uncomfortable discussions, you’ve come to the right place. We promise to make you feel 100% comfortable.
