Adult Health Maintenance and Prevention Q & A
Why are regular check-ups with an OB/GYN necessary?
Yearly check-ups with your OB/GYN should be a vital part of your regular health routine. During your appointment, your doctor can provide health screenings and evaluations, as well as counseling on any areas that you have questions on or issues the doctor’s concerned about. Without these tests, your gynecologist can’t address your particular women’s health issues, and serious health conditions might go undetected.
What questions do the doctors ask during an OB/GYN appointment?
When you meet with your doctor for an initial consultation or yearly health maintenance and prevention appointment, they may ask you a variety of questions. This helps them evaluate your health and determine what your needs are, as well as obtain a thorough health history. Be prepared for questions about:
- Sexual function
- Birth control methods
- STD risks
- Urine and bowel functions
- Depression and mood
Your doctor may also ask about your long-term reproductive health plans or about your sexual history, including abuse or violence. It’s important to be open and honest with your OB/GYN to get the most effective and best treatment possible.
What kind of tests and procedures may be done during an appointment?
During a regular health maintenance and prevention appointment with your doctor at Rodeo Drive Women’s Health Center, you can expect a variety of tests. Depending on your specific situation, the doctor may recommend and perform:
- Pap smears including HPV testing
- HPV vaccinations
- Breast exams or mammogram
- STD testing
- BRCA genetic testing
Depending on your needs, your doctor may also request another lab testing, like blood work or a urine screen. If you have any specific concerns, address them with your doctor at Rodeo Drive Women’s Health Center.
Who should have BRCA testing done?
Certain women may be at a higher risk for breast or ovarian cancer than others. During your adult maintenance and prevention physical, mention your concerns to your doctor. The two of you can discuss the risks and determine if getting the breast cancer gene test is right for you.
If you have a family history of breast cancer, contact the doctors at Rodeo Drive Women’s Health Center and determine how high your risk of developing breast or ovarian cancer is. You can easily schedule appointments online.
