Well Woman Visits

If you are interested in starting a birth control method the HWC requires you to have a well woman exam.  The well woman exam allows the APRNs to assess for any issues that could be worsened by starting a birth control method. For more information about what to expect from this exam, please view this presentation.

A well-woman exam includes:

We have brochures available at the Health and Wellness Center for more detailed information and you can also call to speak with a nurse, make an appointment just for birth control consultation, or go to our “Ask a Nurse” feature on our website.

Even if you are not interested in a birth control method, a yearly well woman exam is highly recommended and encouraged.  The well woman visit is provided at an additional charge to the student for the necessary labs including the pap and pregnancy test.  See current health and wellness lab charges for more information.
