Gynecologists are professionals in the field of reproductive health. In order to provide the best care for their patients, they rely not only on testing but also on the reporting of symptoms directly by their patients. Unfortunately, many patients do not realize that certain symptoms are things they should report or tell their gynecologist about. If you have noticed any of these symptoms, alert your gynecologist. Missed Periods If you've missed a period, you may be worried that you are pregnant, but then move on quickly if you find out that's not the case.
When was the last time you went to your OBGYN for an exam? I skipped two of my bi-yearly exams because I didn't feel that they were necessary.

Since I skipped those important exams, the cancer had progressed significantly. So, why should you go to your OB when you don't feel sick, uncomfortable or have any health issues? My blog will show you exactly what early detection can do when you have cancer.
