Before your physical exam, your doctor at Women’s First Health Center will ask you to answer some questions about your overall health. These questions may cover subjects such as your:
- Medical and family health history
- Sexual health and sexual partners
- Use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs
- Eating habits and physical activity
While reviewing your personal history, this is a great time to ask your doctor any questions or concerns you may have. Make a list of questions for your doctor including questions about birth control options, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), pregnancy, or if you’re due for any shots or screenings. Don’t be afraid to take a notebook with you and write down the answers to your questions so that you can easily remember them later.
