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