    As an OBGYN, I discuss birth control and STD prevention on a regular basis, sometimes multiple times a day, and sometimes even multiple times with a single patient.  With all the different types of birth control out there we often forget about condoms as an option.

    As an obstetrician, an important part of my job is preconceptional counseling. Making sure that hopeful mothers are healthy, eating right, and avoiding harmful behaviors and substances in preparation for pregnancy is a very important duty to me as their OB doctor. Counseling women before pregnancy has even occurred is always challenging though. It’s hard for people to keep themselves […]
