Why We Recommend Gynecological Care
In a 2012 report, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) reviewed research published since 2003 that evaluated liquid-based cytology and human papillomavirus (HPV) testing. (1) The USPSTF also commissioned researchers to develop a computer model to calculate the frequency of cervical cancer screening and the ages at which to begin and end this screening. The USPSTF issued the following recommendation statements (1):
- The USPSTF recommends against screening for cervical cancer in women younger than age 21 years (D recommendation).
- Available studies show that precancer or cancer of the cervix is rare in women younger than age 20. Approximately 90 percent of HPV infections in girls and young women spontaneously clear within two years.
- The USPSTF recommends against screening for cervical cancer with HPV testing, alone or in combination with cytology, in women younger than age 30 years (D recommendation).
- The USPSTF recommends screening for cervical cancer in women age 21 to 65 years with cytology (Pap smear) every 3 years or, for women ages 30 to 65 years who want to lengthen the screening interval, screening with a combination of cytology and HPV testing every 5 years (A recommendation).
- The USPSTF recommends against screening for cervical cancer in women older than age 65 years who have had adequate prior screening and are not otherwise at high risk for cervical cancer.

Doctors recommend that women undergo an annual pelvic exam in order to screen for diseases and cancers. There are several factors that prevent women from keeping up with their annual exams. The lack of insurance or not having a regular doctor are some of the more common obstacles that prevent women from having annual exams. This can lead to some serious consequences. In order to make annual exams as easy as possible, Country Club Urgent Care provides one of the only walk in gynecology clinics in El Paso.
Many women may not have the option of going to the ER for something like an annual exam or even a simple check-up for a gynecological issue. Country Club Urgent Care’s gynecology clinic provides women in El Paso what they require at a convenient location. We strive to offer services at a fraction of what a doctor might charge an uninsured patient, as well as providing caring and sensitive treatment.
Female reproductive health can be compromised by the most minute issue if not treated in time. Annual exams are recommended not only to check for the presence of abnormal cells. These exams also work as a preventative measure against HPV, ovarian and cervical cancer, and other silent, symptomless infections that can render a woman infertile if left unchecked.
The Importance of Annual Gynecological Exams
Annual gynecological exams should be a regular part of any woman’s life starting at age 21. Women aged 21 to 29 years should partake in these yearly exams in order to get a Pap smear. Women aged 30 to 60 should also get annual exams. Annual exams are meant to help women maintain good sexual and reproductive health. Through the exams, the gynecologist can discover health concerns and issues and offer treatment and assistance. Gynecologists can also offer information and assistance in regards to contraceptive methods.
But what goes into these annual exams? Women can commonly expect the following:
- Pap Smears
- Breast exam
- Pelvic exam
- STD exams & treatment
- Check for ovarian cysts
Once the annual exam is done, your gynecologist will be able to answer any questions you may have. The best way to live a happy and healthy life is to be as informed as possible. This is especially true when it comes to female reproductive and sexual health. At Country Club Urgent Care, we strive to help the women of El Paso live life to the fullest. We understand that many people may choose not to visit the gynecology clinic due to monetary restraints or simply out of fear or anxiety. For this reason, we’ve made it as simple and convenient for women to get the gynecological care they deserve.
