1st OBGYN appointment ever - what should i ask/request?

Sat Mar 24, 2012 10:09 am

posted this in a couple of sections hoping for answers before monday!

my history is in my signature, TTC#2 for 10 months, 2 miscarriages so no luck so far.

all i have done is to visit family practise doctors and they haven't even suggested a routine pelvic exam or pap smear...nothing!!

so i booked to see an OBGYN (the best specialist i could hope to see in this country - here in namibia i don't think there are any RE's, even the OBGYN is new to the town!)

my question? i have no idea how this works, i feel lost! i haven't seen an OBGYN before, they didn't even look at my ladyparts once throughout my pregnancy with my son! what should i request...the routine pelvic exam? the pap smear? is there anything else?? do you think i need bloodwork at this point, having had recurrent miscarriages?

i'm lost...please help!!

I think it's pretty routine to do a pelvic exam and pap smear, so definitely ask for one if they don't offer to do one.

Tell them about your recurrent miscarriages. I figure if anyone will know how to help you with that, it would be an ob/gyn.
