True or False? Pelvic Exams for Women After the Age of 65

True! It is a common misconception that women over the age of 65, or those that have experienced menopause or a hysterectomy no longer need to see their gynecologist. Although a woman’s gynecologic and reproductive needs change over her lifetime, a recent press release from the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists indicates that annual exams are an important part of every woman’s health, regardless of age. Annual exams can help identify incontinence or sexual issues and help promote healthy living. Annual pelvic exams performed by a gynecologist can help evaluate patients of all ages for potential risk factors, or identify any existing medical conditions.

Lovelace is happy to help you find a gynecologist and even schedule your appointment! To find a doctor and to schedule your pelvic exam, please call us at 727.2727.
