Do you get a yearly exam?

Not talking paps, but a physical exam with a general physician. Do you only go when you are sick or need to be seen for a reason? Just curious.

Usually when something is wrong. I have to start getting a little more diligent because I'm getting old lol.

I have a yearly check up with my cardiologist and my PCM. I also get a pap smear and a breast exam.

I don't go to the doctor unless I'm dying.

I'm with Coco, unless I'm really sick then I don't typically go....went when I was pregnant but that was the most I've physically been to the doctor in regards to myself.

I have to be on deathbed! I was sick for 3 days with what I thought was food poisoning. Finally gave in the 3rd night and drove myself to ER. (family was asleep, Dh had work and kids school in the morning) Turned out I had a ruptured appendix, opps. Im still not hearing the end of it! Dh was mad as hell at me.

I go to the doctor way more than I would like but it is because I need to keep an eye on stuff so I have a physical about every 3 months including blood work...I prefer to just play doctor ;p
