How often should I see a gynecologist?

You should see your gynecologist at least once a year for your annual well-woman exam. Your well-woman exam is an essential part of preventive health care and often includes a Pap smear to screen for cervical cancer. It's a time for you to check in on your health, get critical health care screenings, and get health care advice from a trusted women's health care provider.

You may not need to have a Pap smear every year. You can talk to your doctor about your personal and family medical history to assess your risk and determine whether a Pap smear is necessary. 

What should I talk to my gynecologist about?

You can talk to your gynecologist about anything. While gynecologists focus on reproductive health; they're well-trained and experienced in all aspects of women's health. So you can ask about abnormal periods, birth control, STDs, and menopause as well as your other health concerns.

Your gynecologist can offer customized advice to help you optimize your health at any stage of life, whether you're trying to get pregnant or dealing with the effects of perimenopause. Younger women may find that they feel more comfortable talking to their gynecologist about their changing bodies, sexual health, and other reproductive health issues than their family or friends.

The committed gynecologists at Eighth Avenue Obstetrics and Gynecology want to protect and improve your health. Call the office or schedule your appointment online today.
