Obstetrics and Gynaecology FAQs

It is recommended that young women schedule their first gynaecological visit between the ages of 13 and 15, or when they become sexually active. This initial visit allows for discussions about reproductive health, screenings, and any concerns the patient may have.

Women aged 21 to 65 should have a Pap smear every three years. Pelvic exams are typically recommended annually or as advised by your healthcare provider based on individual health factors.

Prenatal care is essential for monitoring the health of both the mother and baby during pregnancy. Regular check-ups, screenings, and guidance from healthcare providers help ensure a healthy pregnancy, detect any potential issues early, and promote optimal outcomes for both mother and child.

Birth control options include pills, patches, injections, intrauterine devices (IUDs), implants, and barrier methods. The choice of birth control depends on individual health needs, lifestyle factors, and preferences. Consulting with a healthcare provider can help determine the most suitable option.

Breast health screenings, including mammograms and clinical breast exams, are crucial for early detection of breast cancer. Women should discuss with their healthcare provider when to start mammograms based on individual risk factors and guidelines.

Before a gynaecological procedure or surgery, patients can expect discussions about the procedure, pre-operative instructions, anaesthesia options, recovery expectations, and post-operative care plans. Clear communication with the healthcare team ensures a smooth experience.
