Frequently Asked Questions
There are a few critical ways that obstetrics and gynecology differ. For one, obstetrics is focused on pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period, while gynecology does not typically deal with these topics. Additionally, obstetricians are often involved in more high-risk pregnancies or births than gynecologists. Finally, obstetrics generally deals with female reproductive health up until menopause, while gynecology often continues to deal with women’s health issues after menopause.
Your first gynecological exam should occur when you turn 18 or become sexually active, whichever comes first. However, if you have any concerns about your reproductive health at any age, you should see a gynecologist.
During your initial appointment, your gynecologist will likely take a medical history, perform a physical exam, and order any necessary tests. They may also discuss birth control options with you or answer any questions you have about your reproductive health.
Your first prenatal checkup should take place within eight weeks of becoming pregnant. During this appointment, your obstetrician will likely take a medical history, perform a physical exam, and order any necessary tests. They may also discuss your pregnancy with you and answer any questions about it.
The frequency with which you need physical exams, breast exams, pelvic exams, and Pap tests can vary depending on your age, health history, and other factors. However, in general, most women should have a physical exam every year, a breast exam every year, a pelvic exam every three years, and a Pap test every three years.
Your doctor may recommend more or less frequent exams depending on your circumstances.
You may want to discuss several topics with your primary care providers, such as your family health history, your reproductive health, your sexual health, and any concerns you have about your health. You should also feel free to ask your primary care provider any questions about your health.
