Care for the Reproductive System

What are female and male exams.
pap smear(see if the cervix is working properly)-is a medical test that helps doctors figure out if there are any problems with a girl's cervix(Females only need this test). Women should be 21 when they start getting these regularly. They should get them once every 3 years.
testicular exam(Testicular cancer)- male 15 and 35 should be tested for this. after a hot shower or bath. The scrotum (skin that covers the testicles) is most relaxed then, which makes it easier to examine the testicles.you should do this for about once a month.
prostate exam(prostate cancer)- people ages 40 and 75 are most at risk. what they do is measure the protein levels to test for cancers.
