How To Choose a Gynecologist

Web Admin - Friday, January 13, 2012
Finding the right gynecologist for you is pretty much like finding the perfect pair of jeans. There are different brands, styles and colors to choose.

So how do you go about choosing your gynecologist?


Think about what you are looking for in a gynecological doctor—and be very specific. You have to think about your preferences, in the same way that you would think about whether you want dark denims or acid washed jeans, or whether you want them straight cut or boot leg.

Gynecologist Gender


For most women, the first thing to think about is the gender of the gynecological doctor. Is it extremely important for your gynecologist to be a woman, or would you be fine with either sex? Most women usually prefer female gynecologists as they feel more comfortable revealing their , but others have no qualms about choosing a male doctor.

OB-GYN Capable


Next, you have to decide if you are going to have children, because it will make a difference. Once you’ve developed a long-term relationship with your gynecologist, you will most probably want him or her to deliver your babies someday. In this case, you have to make sure to choose an obstetrician-gynecologist or OB-GYN (they can oversee your health care during your pregnancy and deliver your babies), as not all gynecologists are practicing obstetricians. So if you plan on having kids, it would definitely be wise to choose an OB-GYN.

So let’s say you’ve narrowed it down to a bare minimum list of what you want and what you don’t want. What’s next?

Insurance/Payment Options


When you’re buying a pair of jeans, you have to consider your budget. In terms of choosing a gynecologist, this translates to insurance coverage. Check your health insurance policy and find out what coverage you have. Also, it’s important to find out if your prospective doctors will accept your type of insurance—this is another way to narrow down your search even more.
After you’ve ironed out those details, you move on to the search. Usually, when women are looking for the perfect pair of jeans, they ask their friends to recommend a good shop or boutique. It’s the same thing when it comes to searching for a gynecologist—you ask trusted friends or family members for recommendations and specific feedback. If you can, have them describe their experience with the doctor whom they are recommending, as this will give you an idea on how well he or she handles his or her patients.

Are You Comfortable


And, finally, you try them on. Finding the perfect pair of jeans doesn’t take two minutes—you have to take all the ones you want and try them on to see if they fit you. Once you have gathered a list of names of gynecologists or OB-GYNs who fit your preferences, schedule appointments or “getting to know you” visits with them, as this will allow you to “try on” the doctor and see if he or she is easy to talk to and whether you feel comfortable with him or her, because these two things are extremely important. You must not choose a gynecological doctor whom you are uncomfortable with, as this may lead to serious problems regarding your health and could ultimately do you more damage than good.

Search Hard for the Right Gynecologist


The search for the right gynecologist may seem hard, but if you really think about it, it basically follows the same process as your search for the most flattering pair of jeans—you just have to keep “trying” them on until you find the one that fits you perfectly.
