I just got my period. Should I reschedule my visit?

Several specialty visits and procedures may be more difficult at the time of a period.

I think I might have a UTI or an STD. What should I do?
If you are experiencing any unusual or unpleasant symptoms, we encourage you to contact your provider’s office to schedule a problem visit so that your provider can examine you and administer the appropriate tests. Office staff will do their best to accommodate you as soon as possible. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, always call 911.
I think I might be pregnant. What’s the first step?
Pregnancy can be a happy or scary time in a woman’s life, and sometimes a combination of both.

I’m pregnant and something feels off. Should I call the doctor?
While many symptoms during pregnancy are routine, knowing which ones are not common is just as important. If you are experiencing any of these warning signs call your provider’s office immediately.
