Health Tip: What to Expect From a Gynecologist Visit

(HealthDay News) -- Visiting a gynecologist is important for women to maintain reproductive and sexual health.

Most females should begin seeing a gynecologist at the age of 21, or earlier if they are sexually active, says the University of California at Santa Barbara.

Women should expect the following at a gynecologist visit:

  • Taking basic measurements, such as weight and blood pressure.
  • Being asked questions about sexual history and menstrual cycles.
  • Getting a physical examination of the breasts and genitals.

Feelings of anxiety are normal, but doctors encourage patients not to worry. These exams are common procedures for doctors, and are typically quick and painless, the school says.
