What happens during OB/GYN visits?
During appointments at FemmPro MIDWIFE, friendly staff members greet you. They check your weight, blood pressure, pulse, and other vital signs and review your medical history. Your OB/GYN specialist completes a physical exam, including a pelvic exam as needed, to evaluate your reproductive and overall health. They offer Pap tests to screen for signs of cervical cancer.
If you’re pregnant, your women’s health specialist might listen to your baby’s heartbeat or complete an ultrasound to assess your baby’s health.
In addition to performing Pap tests when necessary, other diagnostic tests your FemmPro MIDWIFE provider might recommend include urine tests, blood tests, sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing, transvaginal or abdominal ultrasounds, tissue biopsies, or other diagnostic procedures.
If you have a health problem requiring treatment, your FemmPro MIDWIFE provider works with you to develop a plan that best matches your needs. It might include lifestyle changes, natural dietary supplements, prescription medications if necessary, or specialist referrals.
How often should I schedule OB/GYN health promotion appointments?
Follow your provider’s recommendations regarding how often to schedule women’s wellness checkups for health promotion. As a general rule, attend routine physical examinations every year or more often as needed. If you’re pregnant, schedule appointments more frequently so your OB/GYN specialist can effectively assess you and your baby’s health.
