Sexual health

The Channel 46 collaborated with Dr Teji Dawane, Senior Consultant, Obstetrician & Gynaecologist, Motherhood Hospitals, who explains what you can expect on your first visit to a gynaec.

1. Be Prepared Mentally Being mentally prepared for the whole experience will help you feel more comfortable consulting a gynaec.

2. Scheduling Your Appointment Avoid scheduling an appointment during periods. Do your math before an appointment, so that the appointment is aligned before or after your periods

3. List Out The Queries Make a note of all the questions you have or the ones that have been causing you concern. Any menstrual-related concerns, or any other odd pain.

4. Be Ready To Answer Some Questions When you have your  first appointment with a gynaecologist, it’s normal to  feel anxious. 

5. Advise Medical Tests Once the breast examination is done the doctor will move to the other recommended tests like pelvic exam, ultrasound, pap smear, etc.
