Frequently Asked Questions

How often do I need to see my OB/GYN?

For routine care – once a year, more often if there is a problem.

When should I have my first exam?

Usually within three years of becoming sexually active. You can schedule an appointment sooner to discuss other issues such as birth control and/or safe sex practices.

What is included in an exam?

The exam generally focuses around a breast exam and pelvic exam. Frequently we use a speculum – an instrument that aids in examining the pelvic organs.
