Talking To Your OB/GYN
Make the most of your annual ob-gyn visit by asking questions. Even if they seem personal or humiliating, you could be assured that your physician has addressed your concerns before. It is alright to inquire about your periods, sex, or anything else related to your reproductive health.
In addition, your OB-GYN should inquire a lot from you. These questions might become quite personal, but your physician needs to know the answers to care for you appropriately. During your visit, expect to be questioned about:
- Vaccine history
- Vaginal discharge
- Sexual concerns
- Contraceptive methods
- Whether you are sexually active
- Your period, as well as any issues you are having with it, such as heavy or missed periods
- Any sexually transmitted infections (STIs) you have had or suspect you may have
- The number of sexual partners you currently have and have had previously
Bear in mind that your OB-GYN is your reproductive health partner. Maintain your relationship by attending your yearly appointments. Let your doctor know if you have any new issues in between appointments.
