1200X628 Couri TOP10 Jan 2022-2

While the current guidelines state that age 21 is the recommended time for pap smear screening, there are many reasons to see a Gynecologist before then. Here is a list of my top 10.


    1. To learn about healthy lifestyle concepts that address exercise, nutrition, stress management, self-esteem, self-care, and skincare.
    2. To discuss irregular, heavy, and/or painful periods and what treatment options are available.
    3. To learn more about your reproductive system and what symptoms correlate with each phase of your menstrual cycle.
    4. To find out what natural remedies and prescription options are available for premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
    5. To learn more about sexually transmitted diseases and to be tested if appropriate.
    6. To learn more about the HPV vaccine and how to protect yourself from this very prevalent virus.
    7. To discuss contraceptive options and/or natural family planning.
    8. To discuss safe sexual practices and healthy romantic relationships.
    9. To learn how to build healthy bones for a lifetime of physical activity.
    10. To have a “partner” in your healthcare that will be there for you always.
