5 symptoms to visit your gynecologist!

Unfortunately, some women do not visit their gynecologist quite often and do not pay attention to certain symptoms, while a simple visit would certainly give a solution.
 
So learn about the 5 most important symptoms that “beg” you visit your gynecologist the soonest possible. 
 
1. Unstable menstruation
If you notice any change in your menstruation (such as sudden stop, sudden suspension of menses etc.) or if you see blood when you do not menstruate, then you should visit your doctor. In addition, if you notice intense bleeding during menstruation and you change pad or tampon every single hour, then there must be a problem with your thyroid, such as infection or uterine fibroids. So call your doctor the soonest possible and let the doctor diagnose the problem. 
 
2. Vaginal fluids 
 Change in smell and liquidity of vaginal fluids is normal within the month. However, if you notice that fluids become more green or yellow and have a bad smell, then you must immediately call your gynecologist. Maybe the fluids that came up are due to some urinary infection (e.g. urinary tract infection) or due to a sexually transmitted disease.   
 
3. Itch 
Itch and general discomfort in the sensitive area is a common phenomenon. Most of the times, the causes of itch are not pathological and are related to external factors, such as allergy to soap, tight jeans, tights that increase perspiration etc.). If a few days later you still feel itch, then you must visit your doctor, because it may be due to fungal disease or colpitis, both requiring special treatment. 
 
4. Positive pregnancy test 
It is true that pregnancy tests have a certain margin of error. Nevertheless, if the test is positive, you must immediately visit your gynecologist, in order to prevent a complication that might lead to abortion. Even when it is an unwanted pregnancy, your gynecologist will guide you through the procedures that must be followed. 
 
5. Intense pain
Try to “understand” as much as you can about this pain. What kind of pain is it? Where do you feel it? Is it continuous or not? Is it a permanent pain or do you only feel it during sex? You must be sure you can answer all these questions in order to guide your gynecologist in the best way you can.
