When was the last time you had someone give your lady parts a good once-over? And by “someone,” I mean an individual with a medical degree from an accredited university. That’s right; it’s time for us ladies of Los Angeles to schedule our yearly gynecological appointment, affectionately known as “the Annual”.

Since we’ve dubbed January “New Year’s Resolution Month”, it’s only fair we take week 2 of our series to focus on women’s health issues. Whether you’re the kind of girl who sends her doctor’s staff a Christmas card or the type that forgot what a Pap smear is, we give you some information to get on track with your body, yourself in 2009.
