for Young Texas Women: Can we talk?

Me & My OBGJanuary 30, 2014Articles

A young woman’s first visit to the gynecologist may be intimidating. Yet parents and physicians can play a big role in helping put her at ease. The more information provided to a patient in advance of her appointment is likely to make the experience less worrisome. 

First VisitMany young women share the same health concerns – most of which are a normal part of growing up. Among the special concerns that can be discussed with an OB-GYN:

  • Cramps and problems with menstrual periods
  • Acne
  • Weight
  • Sex and sexuality
  • Birth Control
  • Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs)
  • Alcohol, drugs, and smoking
  • Emotional ups and downs.

More information about the first visit to an OB-GYN is available on our new web page, ‘for Young Texas Women.’
