People dread of visiting doctors because they are associated with illness. But regular checkup is necessary to make sure that your vagina is healthy. Women decide to visit gyno after their first intercourse, but it is advisable to go see a gyno after first period.
1. Do not wait for s3x to visit a gyno.
As is discussed earlier, when a girl gets her first period, which is around the age 13-15, at that very moment she should visit a gyno. As that helps the doctor to make up a medical history.
2. Never go back to a gyno if you’re uncomfortable.
Be prepared when you’re visiting a gyno, to be touched in the most sensitive area. And even if you feel the slightest wrong vibe, change your doctor.
3. Don’t be shy talking about your problems.
The doctors are there to help you the best they can. The questions you think are way out of the way, might have already been asked to them. That’s their job. They are there to make you feel comfortable with them and with your body.
4. Do not wax near your vagina before the visit.
They don’t care about how your vagina looks. They see that all the time. Waxing leads to swollen areas and it becomes tough for the gyno to examine.
5. Start taking UTI’s seriously.
And urinary tract infection can be really painful while urinating. And gynos want you to take this very seriously.
6. Try avoiding scented soap and lotions.
This is strictly restricted by any gyno. It might feel romantic and everything but these scented soaps can cause Yeast Infection and bacterial vaginosis. Keep these away from your vagina.
7. Have protected s3xual intercourse.
Remember everytime to wear a condom or use any protection. That makes sure of any kind of disease to not spread.
8. Stop avoiding test.
Doesn’t matter if you’re s3xually active or not, getting tested is necessary once in a year. If you are having intercourses with multiple partners, then it becomes mandatory.
9. Skipping annual appointments.
It helps the gyno to notice and record the change your body has went through that year. And it’s also possible that you might have infections which didn’t give away any symptoms yet.
10. Try not to use scented lubes.
Even they want you to ban using scented or flavoured lubes. As this is not good for your vagina.
