Dr. Owen :

Well you do need an ob/gyn exam.

Customer:

o ok

Dr. Owen :

you should get evaluated for some irregular starting periods and at your age - you do need a Thyroid TSH blood test - as thyroid problems are common.

Dr. Owen :

Also, you should eat a very well balanced diet about 2500 calories per day at your weight.

Dr. Owen :

Then you should also excercise - this is good for you too.

Dr. Owen :

And, then you also should be taking Prenatal vitamins.

Dr. Owen :

And, then you should get seen by an ob/gyn

Dr. Owen :

And, here is the web site that will let you find an ob/gyn in your home town:

Customer:

Customer:

ok and what is that website

Dr. Owen :

The ob/gyn will do a pelvic exam

Customer:

and i do eat good food and exercise too.

Customer:

then what

Dr. Owen :

You might get a pelvic ultrasound too to check your ovaries too.

Dr. Owen :

And, you are just 19 so you do not need a PAP but some ob/gyn's might do it since you are trying to get pregnant.

Dr. Owen :

And, then check for any STDs with a 'swab' to check for Chlamydia and gonorrhea.

Dr. Owen :

And, that is about it.

Dr. Owen :

Then possibly offer suggestions as to when to have sex.

Dr. Owen :

I hope this helps

Customer:

but i had gonorrhea before

Dr. Owen :

okay- well you would still be tested for it again - especially prior to getting pregnant

Dr. Owen :

It is part of a Prenatal visit
