As a female, it’s important to take proper care of your body as there are issues that could arise that can be treated if they are seen in the early stages. You also need to take the proper steps by visiting an OB/GYN to ensure that your reproductive health is as good as possible if you want to have children in the future. Breast cancer can also be detected if our doctor feels any lumps during an exam or notices any abnormal areas after a mammogram is performed. Aside from your reproductive health, our doctor can monitor your overall health as well so that you don’t have to seek another office to visit.
One reason as to why you want to visit our OB/GYN is so that you can have clinical breast exams performed. Although you might know how to perform your own exam at home, there are some things that our doctor can look for that you don’t know how to detect. If there are any signs that something could be wrong, then our doctor can order a mammogram or other tests to make sure there are no signs of cancer present. You can also find out the proper way to conduct an exam at home if you’re not sure.
Since an OB/GYN can be your primary provider as well as your reproductive health provider, there are numerous aspects of your personal health that can be monitored. One is your mental health. You can feel free to talk about any emotional issues that you’re experiencing, especially if you’ve had a miscarriage or you’re facing difficulties getting pregnant. Your diet and exercise habits can be discussed so that you can make a plan to stay as healthy as possible. Various health screenings can be provided including a Pap smear and other exams to detect different types of cancers or other issues.
While at the office, you can talk about your menstrual cycle and what should be normal. If you’re of the proper age, you can also talk about what to expect when you go through menopause. If you’re sexually active, then it’s important to visit our OB/GYN to get information about how to prevent pregnancy or what to do if you think that you’re pregnant.
