Our OBGYN is your partner in wellness when it comes to matters that affect women’s health. As you consider visiting our office in Decatur, you need to know when you should plan a visit. In the same way that you see your regular physician when you have your annual checkup, you should follow the same guidelines with an OBGYN. Generally speaking, your first appointment should be when you are in your late teens and then the journey will continue throughout your lifetime. Whether it is your annual exam or you have a concern, our doctor is at the ready to help you.
The First Visit
Plan on seeing our OBGYN in Decatur when you turn eighteen, unless you become sexually active before that point or you are experiencing some kind of problem. When you come in for your visit, you should plan on a physical examination that will include your breasts and your abdomen. Our doctor can also perform an internal exam that will check the condition of your ovaries, cervix, and uterus. If you are interested in birth control, our doctor can help you to find the best option for you. If there is no reason for concern, you will be sent on your way with a recommendation to come back in a year for your next appointment.
As You Get Older
In time, you will have your first pap smear. This test allows our OBGYN to take a small sample of your cervical cells in order to check for the presence of cancerous cells. If you become pregnant at any time, you should plan on seeing our OBGYN for regular monitoring of your condition. Once your childbearing years are over and your reproductive system is shutting down, our doctor will be able to help you to deal with the symptoms of menopause.
