Wittgrove and Brown: San Diego ObGyn

Do I need to see an ob/gyn once I'm through having children?

Yes, an ob/gyn provides critical care and services for women of all ages, from teens and adolescents to post-menopausal women. While you may be done with the obstetrics portion of an ob/gyn's services, gynecological health spans the entire range of a woman's life and health.

I've gone through menopause; do I still need to have Pap tests?

That depends on your age and your personal medical history. The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) recommends women up to the age of 65 years have cervical cancer screening every three to five years. Over age 65, no additional Pap testing is needed in women with a history of normal Pap test results, who have not had cervical cancer and who have no history of pre-malignant cervical cancerous lesions.

When should a teenager see an ob/gyn?

The ACOG recommends teens have their first ob/gyn visit between 13 and 15 years of age. Although a pelvic exam will probably not be performed at this visit, it provides teens with an opportunity to learn about their bodies, their health and safe sex.

Should my child have the HPV vaccine?

Both the ACOG and the CDC recommend girls be vaccinated with the HPV vaccine between the ages of 13 and 17 years prior to having sex. HPV is a large family of viruses, some of which have been associated with increased risks for cervical, vaginal, vulvar, penile and anal cancers, as well as an increased risk for genital warts. HPV is also extremely common – so common, in fact, that most sexually-active people have come in contact with the virus at some point. In most cases, the body can rid itself of the virus, but in some cases, it persists. Having the vaccine provides important protection against these diseases.
