Learn What to Expect at Your First OB-GYN Appointment , St. Peters, Missouri

It’s natural to feel nervous about going to the doctor in general, and when it comes to visiting an OB-GYN for the first time, you may feel uneasy because you don’t know what to expect. However, gynecological care is an important part of maintaining your health. At Advanced OB-GYN Services in St. Peters, MO, the caring staff fosters a warm environment that will put you at ease the moment you walk through the door for your first appointment.

Here are some items that you can expect to happen at your visit: 

  • obgynDiscuss Your Concerns: You will spend a portion of your first appointment talking to the gynecologist. Your OB-GYN doctor will ask about your medical history, and you can discuss any of your concerns, as well, including cramps, acne, weight gain, and STDs. Even if you are shy, it is important to be honest with your doctor about your sex life so they can know what to look out for, such as STDs that don’t always manifest themselves with noticeable symptoms.
  • Document Your Stats: During the first visit, your gynecologist will check your vitals, such as height, weight, and blood pressure. In addition, the doctor will exam the outside of your genitals and perform a breast exam.
  • Confirm Your Health: If you are experiencing any issues like unusual vaginal discharge or are over the age of 21, your gynecologist will perform a pelvic exam, a Pap smear, or both. During a pelvic exam, the gynecologist will examine your vulva and vagina to ensure it looks and feels healthy. You may feel some pressure during the exam, but it is painless. In a Pap smear, the doctor will gently swipe some cells from your cervix and check them for changes that might indicate cancer.
