Health Maintenance Guidelines

How often should I get a Pap Test? A mammogram?

Our Health Maintenance Guidelines offer a basic timetable for when and how often women should be checked.

These guidelines apply to healthy women in the general population. The right plan for your care may differ based on your medical history, family history, personal preferences and lifestyle, as well as your physician’s experience. You and your physician should work together to develop a specific preventive health screening plan for you.
