Wedding Bells Are About to Ring
Wedding bells will ring for many couples this spring and brides are now working hard to create the perfect day. Dresses have been ordered, flowers chosen, and music playlists are being prepared. The to-do list is already long but don’t forget one very important item that can’t be delegated to a wedding planner: a women’s health checkup.
In the rush to get everything done before the big day, it’s easy to put off your checkup with a gynecologist. However, a woman’s annual exam and PAP test when needed, is more important than ever. In addition to having a pelvic and breast exam to discover any potential women’s health problems, the exam appointment is a perfect time to discuss family planning and review options for birth control or potential pregnancy. Sometimes genetic and/or STD testing is appropriate before marriage so that undiscovered issues do not shatter future plans.
Dr. Amy Siegel, OB/GYN, can arrange for any tests you may need prior to your wedding. She has the experience and sensitivity to help prepare for this special day. To make an appointment with Dr. Siegel, call: 201-225-2555.
