First Gynecologist Appointment Experiences

4.

“I wish I knew that some things warrant getting a second opinion. I was seeing a gynecologist and she found some ‘abnormal cells.’ It was something that could possibly develop into cancer and she wanted to do a loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP). While rare, it can cause difficulty getting pregnant, the potential for preterm birth, or having a low birth weight baby.”

“I went to another gynecologist who suggested we just keep an eye on the area because it often corrects itself, but he wanted to make sure it wasn’t getting worse. I went to him every six months and after about two years, it went away and I haven’t had any more issues. I was able to avoid a likely pricey procedure that was unnecessary for me.”
