My annual got canceled because of corona. What resources can I trust will be accurate while I can’t talk to my gyno?
That is a really common question being asked by my patients. Most clinics are closed right now for routine, in person visits and I know that’s frustrating. But the idea behind these measures is we really want to reduce how this virus is spread. On the flip side, most offices are offering virtual visits. I would absolutely touch base with your gynecologist or primary care physician, to see if they’re offering a virtual visit. In a virtual visit, if you have questions about your birth control, through most virtual visits you can get your birth control renewed. If you have questions in general about gynecological issues, a few resources I like to suggest to patients are: reproductiveaccess.org, plannedparenthood.org, and bedsider.org.
