Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I am Dr. SH and will be helping you out with your concerns today.

Expert:  Dr. SH replied 4 months ago.

So I presume you have never been to any doctor?

Never had any blood tests?

Do you have any symptoms or any medical problems?

Are you on any medications for anything?

Please let me know.

All you need to say to the doctor that you need a general health check up and that is all. The doctor will understand.

oky and do u thing in any clinic I go,they offer a general check up or theres a specific clinic for that?.
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 4 months ago.

Good that your asthma does not trigger.

To have a general or routine check up, all you need to tell your doctor that you want a general check up and general blood tests.

You just need to go to a GP (general practitioner).

Request your GP to have the blood test and general examination.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
also how can I get a birth control peel ? do they need to examine me for that bfore giving me?
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 4 months ago.

Well, you can tell your doctor that you also want to be tested for sexually transmitted diseases and the doctor will oblige.

They will not examine you before giving the birth control pill.

You just request your doctor and he/she will give it to you.
