Routine Check Ups Q & A

When should you see your OB/GYN for a routine checkup?

Dr. Lee recommends most female patients see him at least once a year for a routine checkup. Commonly referred to as well-woman visits, these appointments allow him to screen for issues that can be prevented from turning into significant problems when caught in their infancy.

Dr. Lee suggests that most patients schedule their first OB/GYN examination between ages 13-15. That allows him to discuss sensitive issues, such as menstruation and sexual activity, as well as establish a healthy doctor-patient relationship.

Beyond your routine yearly checkup, you should see your OB/GYN when you’re having issues related to your reproductive health. These may include heavy or irregular periods, pain during intercourse, or discharge that smells or looks unusual.

What issues are addressed during a routine checkup at your OB/GYN?

When you see Dr. Lee for a routine OB/GYN checkup, he may discuss various issues with you. He completes a physical exam, including pelvic and breast exams, and asks you a variety of questions, covering topics such as:

  • Your period
  • Sexual activity
  • Birth control
  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • Your relationships
  • Sexuality
  • Pregnancy, including planning and prevention

Even if you find the questions embarrassing, remember that Dr. Lee is a professional in women’s health and isn’t there to judge you, but to help you. It’s therefore vitally important to answer his questions honestly.

Dr. Lee also provides opportunities to ask any questions you may have concerning your health.

What treatments can an OB/GYN do during a routine checkup?

Beyond pelvic and breast exams, Dr. Lee may perform screenings and treatments for a variety of issues. These include:

  • Pap smears
  • Mammograms
  • STD testing
  • Bone density testing
  • Genetic screenings

Dr. Lee may also discuss birth control options and, if necessary, install a contraceptive device or write you a prescription.

If you have any signs or symptoms of an infection, he may take a swab during your pelvic exam and look at it under a microscope. If there’s an infection present, Dr. Lee prescribes antibiotics.
