WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM AN OB-GYN VISIT?

What happens at the gynecologist’s depends on the reason for the visit and the individual’s situation.


If it is a young woman’s first visit, she may just have a chat with the doctor, get some general health information, and find out what to expect in the future.


At any visit with the gynecologist, it is worth remembering:


  • An honest account of your health concerns and lifestyle gives the gynecologist a better idea of your situation and enables them to help you more.

  • A gynecological examination, including a pap smear, may be uncomfortable, but it is not usually painful.

  • It is not necessary to wax or shave before the visit.

  • Bodily odor is natural. If it indicates a problem, the gynecologist needs to know.

  • If you have a period when the appointment is scheduled, you can still go ahead with the visit, but it may be better to postpone, unless you have symptoms that need urgent attention.

  • It is best to avoid sexual activity, using a vaginal douche, or using tampons for 2 days before a gynecological examination.


A patient can ask to have someone with them at the visit, either in the room or outside the door.
