Doctor visits seem to be among the least favored tasks on people’s to-do lists. The dreadful yearly (or bi-yearly) gynecologist check-up is one appointment in particular that leaves many women slightly squeamish at the mere thought of it. Although most of us are never ecstatic about our annual trips to the “gyno”, it is one of the most essential actions that we can take in being proactive about our sexual health.
While we may be somewhat apprehensive about these visits, it doesn’t mean that we should not take full advantage of them. I mean they do only come around once a year (or every other year). Here’s how to not only maximize your next gynecological visit, but to leave with the peace of knowing that all is well in regard to your sexual and reproductive health.
