My ob/gyn says everything is ok but I see light green/yellow fluid on my pants time to time.What can it be?Doc doesn't see anything worrisome.

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?

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.
