FAQ's

At what age should I have my first gyn exam?

Unless there is a medical problem, you should have your first pelvic exam around the age of 21 years or sooner if you begin sexual activity.

What do I do if I missed one or two days of birth control pills?

First, read the instructions that came with your pill. Generally speaking, if you miss one pill, take two pills the next day. If you miss two pills, take two pills on each of the next two days. It’s best to use a backup contraception method such as condoms for the remainder of the month.

The Orth Evra patch releases a higher estrogen level than what is received from oral birth control pills. Please discuss with your doctor whether the patch is a good choice for you.

What medications can I safely take when I am pregnant?

Prenatal vitamins, which are now available without a prescription, are safe to take during pregnancy. For any other medications, vitamins, herbal remedies or supplements, check with your physician.

Is it safe to exercise when I’m pregnant?
