American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology recommends an exam every year with pap smears starting at age 21; some pap smears can be spaced out to every 3 years if low risk and meet certain criteria; a baseline mammogram yearly after age 40; bone density screening when menopausal or if you have risk factors for osteoporosis. It is always good to discuss your personal risk factors and family history with your physician to gauge when these tests should be done for you.
I just found out that I am pregnant. When do I need to schedule my first OB appointment?admin2023-05-10T18:03:23+00:00
We like to see our new OB patients between 7-8 weeks after your last menstrual period. This is the best time for a first visit with ultrasound to visualize the baby. Of course, if you are having concerns or problems, we will see you sooner.
