When should I go see a gynecologist?
A gynecologist plays an important role in a woman’s life because they can screen for the common ailments affecting many American women, and offer long-term support services. In fact, the gynecologist is the first line of defense against some of the most significant women’s health issues.
When a woman turns 21 years old or starts becoming sexually active, she should start seeing a gynecologist yearly. This means well-women exams that include screenings for breast cancer as well as cervical dysplasia, which can lead to cancer. These exams aren’t only about screenings, though. It’s also an opportunity to bring up any intimate or reproductive questions or concerns you may have. You can also inquire about contraception management or a variety of other women’s health issues.
Also, a woman should go see a gynecologist if she experiences any of the following conditions:
- Changes in the menstrual cycle/period frequency, which could indicate pregnancy
- Discomfort in the vaginal area, which could indicate a urinary tract infection or another condition
- Irregular bleeding, such as bleeding during intercourse
