    6 week post partum appointment?

    Advertisements
    Mine's tomorrow, is it just like a regular gyno appointment? I was interested in getting either an iud or implanon (need to research a little more) but would they be able to do that tomorrow or would I have to schedule another appointment?

    For those two, they usually need to schedule another appointment.
    Should be regular, they will do a pap etc

    With my first two I had a pap. This last one my doc did a 5 week and no pap, just took a quick looksie. He said it was no use giving me a pap until I was due for my annual in May. They usually ask you if you want bc at your pp visit.

    The insurance I had with baby number 2 they would only pay for an IUD if I got it at my six week visit, otherwise it wasn't covered. I ended up getting it taken out after only a few months anyway. Never get an IUD if you have cervicitis. :/

    After having my first I didnt make it to my PP appointment before getting pregnant but with my second they gave me the IUD right then at my PP appointment which they did at 4 weeks instead of 6 so I wouldn't end up pregnant a third time

    Gah I hope I don't find out I'm pregnant tomorrow! They started me on the pill after I had Will (they gave me a few packs of Yasmin to tide me over for the time being) but I'm also taking St. John's Wort. I know they say to wait til after your post partum appointment to but we've been bad I guess we'll see! I think I might just stick with the pill though if I'm going to have to schedule another appointment for the other options.

    I just had mine and they only looked at my tatas. Nothing else. I was like....okayyyyy!!! I didnt have any tearing though so that probably why.

    And sorry idk about the BC cause I opted out for now. Afghanistan tends to be effective in preventing pregnancies.
