When and Why to visit Dr. Kiran Mehndiratta?
Q - When should I schedule my first
appointment and how often should I follow up afterward?
Your first appointment should be between 13 & 19 years of age.
This should depend on whether you have any health concerns like
cramps during periods, emotional ups & downs, irregular periods,
family medical history or any abnormal symptom that makes you feel
the necessity of medical attention. You and Dr. Mehndiratta can
work out a schedule for follow-up visits that work for you. If
you’re sexually active or over 18 you should make an appointment
every year (this is really important!).
Q – Why visit Dr. Kiran Mehndiratta?
Dr. Kiran Mehndiratta sees lots of teens and specializes in
adolescent gynaecology. Your issues and concerns are different
than your mom’s and need special attention and care, that too
under high level of CONFIDENTIALITY. Ask people you trust for
references – your family doctor, your mom, aunt, older sister,
your school or college best friends and the locational
surroundings – you will get the answer yourself.
Q – What will happen during my first
A. Your first visit will open an opportunity for you and
Dr. Mehndiratta to know each other and for the doctor to
understand and record your health history. Your height, weight and
blood pressure will be checked and you may be asked to provide a
urine sample. Depending on your age, health history and any
concerns you may have, the doctor might do a
pelvic exam and
Q – How do I talk to Dr. Kiran
A. Asking and answering
questions, no matter how personal, is the key to getting good
care. Remember, it's really important to be honest. That’s the
only way your doctor will know what to check and whether you might
need special tests. What you say is confidential, just between you
and your doctor. Your doctor will be happy to describe procedures,
so don’t hold back. Ask whatever is on your mind. Your doctor will
probably tell you that there are no stupid questions.
Q – Will the exams hurt?
A. You’ll probably
experience a feeling of slight pressure rather than pain during
the exams. Some discomfort might be caused by muscle tension, so
it’s good to concentrate on relaxing. If you do feel pain, speak
up right away.
Q – What happens when my appointment
A. If you’ve had tests,
Dr. Mehndiratta will let you know when the
results will be back. It’s a good idea to schedule your next
appointment before leaving. The computerized patient-clinic
management system of the doctor will record your history and test
results and will keep track of your next appointment.
Congratulations !! You can now leave
Dr. Kiran Mehndiratta’s Clinic much relaxed and mentally strong
knowing you’ve done something good for yourself.
