Setting aside time for your annual check-up may not always make it to the top of your priorities, but it’s one of the best things you can do for your present (and future) self. An annual check-up is your opportunity to get a comprehensive and full view of your medical history and standing, and to make the necessary changes to your habits and lifestyle from there.

An annual well woman exam, in particular, has added screening tests for women that cover reproductive and obstetric health. Several conditions are specific to women, and getting to the bottom of your symptoms can help you receive the right diagnosis. These tests are also important as they could have a ripple effect on other aspects of your health, such as your fertility or cardiovascular health, to name a few.

By making your annual well woman a habit, you can be sure that you are up to date with whatever screenings are recommended for every age group. Moreover, you can work closely with your healthcare provider to discuss sensitive topics or any other concerns you have in relation to your medical history, family history, chronic conditions, and more.

Read on to learn more about Kindred’s Annual Well Woman Packages and how they can help you stay proactive with your preventive health plans.

Why book an Annual Well Woman Package?

When you book a package as opposed to individual tests, you can be sure not to miss out on anything important. Our Annual Well Woman Packages have been designed to touch on every aspect of a woman’s health, with steps that are easy to follow for your convenience. Because all the necessary exams, tests, and screenings are packaged, they are also more cost-effective than booking each one separately. 

Annual Well Woman Packages provide you with a good baseline of your health, which can be especially helpful when you don’t know where or how to start. 

How do I know which Annual Well Woman Package to book?

Our Basic, Comprehensive, and Executive Well Woman Packages all offer a holistic assessment of a patient’s health.

The Basic Package is a great starting point for those who want an initial overview.

The Comprehensive Package offers additional tests for thyroid, imaging tests of reproductive organs and breasts, another stool exam, and more – which is advised if you have issues in any of these areas.

The Executive Package is advised for women above the age of 35, with more imaging tests of internal organs, calcium and vitamin D levels, an ECG for heart health.

What do the different tests mean?
