Make your health a priority. Visit your Spectrum Health care team for care that helps you prevent health problems—or catch disease early, before it becomes serious.

Well-Woman Exams

Visit your primary care provider, gynecologist or midwife every year for a well-woman visit. This routine check-up focuses on preventive care. It may include:

  • Guidance on ways to protect or improve your health 
  • Immunizations 
  • Physical exam, including a clinical breast exam and a pelvic exam 
  • Screening tests 

Learn more about well-woman visits—and what questions to ask during your appointment.
