REMINDER:

Schedule your visit for birth control pill refills BEFORE you run out of pills.

Gynecological examinations should NOT be performed when menstruating. Please schedule your appointment before or after the expected time of menses.

If you have symptoms of vaginitis or think you may have an STI, schedule an exam to be checked for infections before scheduling your annual pap smear. The results of a pap smear may be affected by an infection. Wait to schedule the pap smear until after the infection has been treated.

For 48 hours before the examination, DO NOT:

  • Douche
  • Have sexual intercourse
  • Use vaginal medications, creams, jellies, foams, etc.
  • Use suppositories or tampons
