Physical examinations for women and men
The annual exam is a special yearly exam just for women. It usually includes a pelvic exam and breast exam in addition to checking your weight, blood pressure, and health history. Sometimes, it includes testing for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). The annual exam is a great time to ask any questions you have about sex, birth control, health concerns like weight, quitting smoking, or STDs. At Public Health Family Planning clinics, your annual exam is always done by a female health provider. Learn more about women's health exams.
Men, regardless of age, sexual orientation, or ability to pay are always welcome at Public Health Family Planning clinics -- as clients or as the partner/friend of a client.
The male exam is an exam of a man's reproductive organs (penis and testicles) to assess health. During the exam, the health provider will check your weight, blood pressure, and health history. The health provider will also screen for testicular cancer. Sometimes, the exam includes testing for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). The male exam is a great time to ask questions about sex, birth control, health concerns like quitting tobacco, or how to prevent STDs. Learn more about men's health exams.
