Part of your health plan includes having an annual pap smear. This means your doctor can make sure that your pelvic organs (uterus, tubes and ovaries) are of normal size and shape, and located in the normal position. And, he/she can check for signs of infection or abnormality of the cervix that could signal cancer.
For the most part, your family doctor or gynecologist can help you with these needs. You may also like to learn more by checking out the health information on the website for the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada.
