After c-section, ob-gyn asked if i wanted tummytuck&lipo.Thought he was joking&said yes, but he did right then!free!looks great, but that's weird, right?
Yes Weird...: What you are describing is very unusual and generally not recommended. Most patients who undergo tummy tuck surgery do so many months/years after C-section surgery ( best performed by board certified plastic surgeons). Best to have achieved a long-term stable weight prior to tummy tuck surgery. Best wishes; hopefully you will be very pleased, despite the unusual experience. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Obstetricians deal with pregnancy and helping women to have a healthy baby. Gynecology deals with women's reproduction health, so gynecologists treat reproductive health problems like irregular periods, vaginitis, abnormal pap tests. Gynecologists also help women to maintain or achieve overall health--and so address issues of ...Read more
Who can I ask about getting an iud? My ob gyn thinks i'm too young (i'm 22 years old) and says its not recommended because i haven't given birth yet.
It's safe. : Iuds are safe for adolescent and nulliparous women (those who are young and not had children).

Where do I go to get my blood checked for Accutane levels? I asked 1 ob/gyn and she said she didn't do that.
Dermatologist: I'm assuming that maybe you received this prescription from a dermatologist? Whomever prescribed the drug, should be the one to monitor it. As an ob/gyn, i've never checked Accutane levels either. Check with your doctor, should be straightforward. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have a bad odor at times it's like it comes an goes. I have asked my ob/gyn doctor about it an he told me it might be what I'm eating, can you help?
I just got an appointment to my OB-GYN for the first time. I feel comfortable asking this to a lady doctor. What should I expect?
Just talking.: Most times you do not need to get undressed or have a pelvic exam by a GYN at your age. You will likely just be talking to the doctor. If you are more comfortable with a female then that is who you should see. If their is not a female OB/GYN nearby then perhaps you could see a nurse practitioner. It is important to be comfortable with your healthcare providers. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Good idea: Ideally, a girl should first see a gynecologist around 13-15 years old. This will allow her to establish a relationship with her doctor, understand the importance of female health, and learn about issues that pertain to her body. Important topics like the menstrual cycle, puberty, std prevention, pap tests, and contraception can slowly be introduced. Pap tests should begin at age 21. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
A whole lot: Ob/gyns complete college, followed by 4 years of medical school, and then a grueling 4 year residency program. In order to practice medicine, they must also pass a rigorous sent of exams. If this wasn't enough, some of them become board certified, which is an even more difficult exam. It is worthwhile to enter the medical profession, but it is not for the faint of heart. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
