Your OB-GYN plays an important role in helping you stay healthy. Your visits with Antheia Gynecology provide opportunities for you to ask questions about your reproductive health and bring up any concerns you have. The following are some of the more common questions that you should consider asking your OB-GYN.
Should I Be Worried About Irregular Periods?
If your periods are irregular, you should bring this up to your gynecologist. There are several possible causes of an irregular period, and your gynecologist can help you determine why you’re having them and what you can do about them.
What Kind of Birth Control Should I Use?
If you’re looking into getting birth control, it’s important to find one that will work best for you. Your gynecologist can provide you with information on the different kinds that are available and recommend certain ones based on your overall health and other factors, such as underlying medical conditions.
How Often Should I Have STD/STI Tests Done?
Whether or not you’re in a committed, long-term relationship, you should ask your gynecologist how often to be tested for sexually transmitted diseases and infections. In some cases, it can take years for symptoms to appear. Getting tested for certain diseases as often as needed helps ensure that you get a prompt diagnosis and treatment.
Why Am I Having Vaginal Pain or Discharge?
If you have been experiencing vaginal discomfort or discharge, you should ask your gynecologist about your symptoms. Your gynecologist can provide a diagnosis and recommend treatment if needed.
Should I Get a Mammogram?
You should start getting mammograms based on certain factors, such as your age and family history of breast cancer. Your gynecologist can let you know when you should schedule your first mammogram and what to expect at this visit.
