Part of being well is taking good care of all your healthcare related needs. Seeing your OBGYN is just as important as seeing your primary care physician. You’ll want to address your reproductive health with as much concern as your physical and mental health. After all, if you plan to have children, you’ll want to make sure that your body can safely carry and deliver a baby.
How to Keep Your Reproductive System in Good Shape
There are many things you can do to ensure that your reproductive system is in good shape. The suggestions listed here can be discussed at length with Dr. Wilburn. The OGBYN wants you to have the knowledge that you need to make sound decisions about your body.
Take Action Concerning Your Reproductive Health
Here are some ways to take good care of your reproductive health:
- Decide which form of birth control works best for you. You’ll want to carefully consider your options before committing to one. If you want to delay pregnancy until later in your life, it may not be as easy as you think with some forms of birth control. Speak to your OBGYN about your options first.
- Practice safe sex. Use condoms with your partner to prevent disease and pregnancy. Taking birth control pills alone will not help fight STDs. Use protection each time you have sex. Carry condoms in your purse, so there is never an excuse not to use them.
- Track your menstrual cycle. Use a calendar or a mobile app. Period trackers are very popular because they also show you when you are your most fertile. There are many to choose from, and most are free. They’re easy to update to as it only takes seconds to input your information.
- Remove toxins from your life. Go for all-natural and organic products. Steer clear of dyes and chemicals. You don’t want them negatively affecting your reproductive health. Giving up processed foods for more optimal nutrition is ideal and something that Dr. Wilburn can help you with.
