Dr. Debora Sedaghat of OC Women's Care is here for you when you need an OBGYN in Fountain Valley, CA. An OBGYN or a doctor of obstetrics and gynecology can help you with all your women's healthcare needs. Keep reading for reasons to see an OBGYN and contact us for an appointment.
Many young women see an OBGYN for the first time in their teens, but if you're 21 and have never seen an OBGYN, your doctor would recommend an appointment. Even if you are not sexually active you should have a pap smear for cervical cancer screening, and a conversation with your OBGYN about sexual and reproductive health.
If you are having very heavy, irregular, or very painful periods, you don't have to suffer every month. Come talk to your OBGYN about your symptoms and we can help regulate your periods and control symptoms.
Birth control is one of the most common reasons women seek out an OBGYN, and you have several options for preventing pregnancy. Your doctor can help you find the best option for your current life, and any future family planning if you want to get pregnant in the future.
