OBGYN Q & A

Why do I need to see an OB/GYN?

In general, it’s important to have a routine well-woman exam once a year, or as recommended. This preventive exam includes a series of tests and evaluations to ensure you’re in good health. And if medical intervention is needed, your OB/GYN can help.

Outside of your annual exams though, there may be times when you need to see a dedicated women’s health practitioner. You may need to see an OB/GYN if:

  • You think you might be pregnant or had a positive home pregnancy test
  • You’re having symptoms of a sexually transmitted disease (STD)
  • Your periods are irregular, very painful, or extremely heavy
  • You feel a lump or mass during a self breast exam
  • You suddenly experience lower abdominal pain
  • You want to start or change birth control
  • You feel burning while urinating

It’s also time to have an OB/GYN evaluation if you’re experiencing menopause-related symptoms, such as pain during intercourse or hot flashes.

What happens during an OB/GYN appointment?

The compassionate women’s health practitioners at Trusted Medical Centers - Mansfield want to get to know all about you, your lifestyle, and your personal and family medical history. After sitting and talking with you and going over any current concerns you may have, your OB/GYN may:

  • Evaluate your body mass index (BMI)
  • Perform a pelvic exam or Pap smear
  • Request a urinalysis or blood draw
  • Conduct STD screenings
  • Check your blood pressure
  • Perform an ultrasound

Because Trusted Medical Centers - Mansfield has everything you need on-site — from a state-of-the-art laboratory to a range of diagnostic services — you can expect fast results from any testing you may need.

How do I prepare for an OB/GYN exam?

There are a few things you can do to prepare for your OB/GYN exam at Trusted Medical Centers - Mansfield. For instance, if you know you’re due for a Pap test — usually every three to five years — it’s helpful to avoid scheduling your visit when you’re on your menstrual period. Blood flow can sometimes alter the results of your Pap test.

You should also make a list of any medications you take, including over-the-counter varieties and supplements. To ensure you get all of your questions answered, write them down before you come in. This way, you can discuss all of your concerns with your dedicated practitioner.
