(http://ow.ly/hqOG50k0kSa)

A mammogram is a diagnostic imaging procedure used to detect breast cancer. During a mammogram, your breasts are compressed and X-ray images are captured. Next, your doctor evaluates the X-rays looking for tumors or other unusual growths. The American Cancer Society recommends women with an average risk of cancer start undergoing regular mammograms at the age of 45.

What Is Endometriosis?
(http://ow.ly/urjw50k0kEU)

Endometriosis is a painful, chronic disorder that causes a woman's uterine tissue, or endometrium, to grow outside the walls of the uterus. When your endometrium grows on your ovaries, fallopian tubes, or the tissue lining your pelvis, it thickens, breaks down, and bleeds as part of your monthly menstrual cycle. Ultimately, this leads to a variety of uncomfortable symptoms including pelvic pain, heavy menstrual bleeding, pain during intercourse, and even infertility.

Why Would I Need A Pelvic Exam?
(http://ow.ly/4G6r50k0kuD)

Typically, a pelvic exam is part of your annual well-woman check up. It gives your doctor an opportunity to evaluate your reproductive organs, ensuring you're healthy and well. Pelvic exams are also used to pinpoint underlying health problems. For example, if you experience pelvic pain or spotting, your doctor might perform a pelvic exam to see what's causing the problem. Pelvic exams are performed in-office and usually take less than 10 minutes.
