As a woman, you need to pay attention to your body. In addition to seeing your regular physician for your typical healthcare needs, you also need to see an experienced OB/GYN. An OB/GYN is a physician who is trained in the health issues that are particular to women. You’ll be placing yourself in the hands of someone who knows all about your reproductive system, how hormonal fluctuations can affect you over the course of your lifetime and concerns that could affect you at some point in your life. As you think about what you need to do to take care of yourself, make regular visits to our office a top priority.
When is the Best Time to See an OB/GYN?
Your journey into major changes in your body begins with puberty. If you have any issues during the early stages when your menstrual cycle begins, you may need to visit our OB/GYN for the first time at this point in your life. Otherwise, expect to begin annual exams when you are eighteen. It could be sooner if you become sexually active at an earlier age.
Throughout the course of your lifetime, our OB/GYN will be on guard for the presence of sexually transmitted diseases and any issue that is a concern for women’s health. If you become pregnant, you can see our OB/GYN many times throughout your pregnancy to monitor your progress and the baby’s development.
Make an Appointment for Any Irregularities
If ever there is a concern, whether you have found a lump in your breasts, you’re experiencing pain or you have unusual bleeding from the vagina, you should make an appointment at our office immediately. Early detection is key in effective treatment for problems that are particular to a woman. It is better to be cautious than to ignore any symptoms that you may be experiencing.
