Sharing this article from Jeunesse Anion because I think it’s helpful:

There’s an unspoken special kind of bond between a gynecologist and a patient. You see, besides having access to the most intimate part of the body, an obstetrician-gynecologist plays a big role in your wellness– from keeping your reproductive system in the pink of health, to guiding you through every stage of pregnancy, down to delivering a new member of the family.


So don’t take chances when you’re looking for Dr. Right. Jeunesse Anion’s Dr. Faith Suluen, ob-gyn, gives us these 5 tips to consider when we’re looking for our Ob-Gyn:

  1. Family and Friends Referrals. The first step when you’re looking for the right doctor is to ask for referrals from friends and family. Besides, there’s no better way of telling what a “good” doctor is than getting opinions of people you trust and who can also help you determine the perfect fit for your personality.
  2. The Right Clinic. When you’re craving for something, you make sure you pick the highest rated restaurant or at least, the one that’s accessible for you to dine in. Same goes for choosing a doctor: you have to take into consideration location as well as its clinic hours. Especially if you’re pregnant, hospital runs become part of your routine, so be sure that drive time, transportation options and parking space are conducive for you.
  3. Know Their Expertise. Your life stage is a vital factor when choosing an ob-gyn, that’s why you should hire a doctor that’s an expert in your area of concern. Knowing her credentials, years of practice, educational background, and patient relationship will help you decide. Dr. Faith also advises considering these shortlisted but important questions: Does she take the time to explain things clearly and completely? Is she familiar with most recent industry changes? Does she take time to upgrade and update her knowledge and skills? These vital qualifications will help to ensure your satisfaction!
  4. Shared Values. When it comes to choosing a health provider, it’s important to consult someone who respects your decisions and is passionate about achieving your health goals. Discussing personal information, pregnancy history, and other intimate details is like sharing your secrets. A doctor whom you can talk to with ease and sincerely cares about your well-being is a keeper.
  5. Your Comfort and Peace of Mind. You want to be able to disclose confidential matters to someone you can trust. Dr. Faith says, “Besides medical background, a good ob-gyn should also have good communication skills because they act as a counselor or a confidante to their patients most of the time.” Additionally, these three R’s should serve as your guide when trimming down your choices: reliable, responsible and reputable.

Your ob-gyn is one of the most important health care partners in life. While it is not easy to search for one, it’s surely worth all the effort and research. Besides, you should never feel sorry for having high standards because choosing whose hands you’ll trust your life with is a basic right.

Additionally, remember that self-care also includes choosing the right product for your intimate part, just like when you’re choosing the perfect ob-gyn.

    In accordance with basic human decency you should always mention that it’s a sponsored blog post, even as simple as adding in the end a byline like this:

    “This blog post was sponsored by (Name Brand Here).”

    Even if you are not legally bound to disclose that you’ve been paid to publish a post, you should.

    TRUST and AUTHENTICITY are important and your readers will soon become disillusioned and jaded if you mislead them, whether intentionally or accidentally.

    I sincere hope this is a case of the latter rather than the former.

    Still rooting for you Queen!

      Hi Felicia, this wasn’t a sponsored post. I am friends with the PR handling the brand and she asked if I could kindly share the article. Since I find the tips useful, I shared the article so my readers can benefit.

      As for informing readers that it is a press release, the info about the company and the brand at the bottom of the article is already a dead giveaway. Plus, the article is tagged as Press Release.

    I am trying to decide how to choose an OBGYN since my husband and I are wanting to get pregnant. You mentioned that it is important to find a doctor that shares the same values as me because discussing personal information is like sharing a secret. That is a great point for me to keep in mind while I look for a doctor to help my husband and I get a family.

      Hi Barbera, thank you for dropping by!

      The point about choosing someone who shares your values is something we usually forget, right? 🙂 It hadn’t occurred to me, too, until I was shown this article. What’s the use of getting a doctor who doesn’t respect your beliefs and pushes procedures that you don’t agree with? You’ll just end up with more stress. What’s worse, is the doctor might divulge your secrets just because they believe they are doing the right thing and that you are wrong. Or, the doctor might refuse to do something that you are totally up for.

      Getting someone who shares your beliefs is actually a very important factor!

      Good luck in your efforts! Hope you get rewarded soon! 🙂

    I like how you mention that you need to find a doctor that is easy to talk to since you will be discussing a lot of personal information. Since my husband and I are trying to get pregnant, I thought I would start looking for a GYN service right now. Since I’m a pretty private person, I will definitely make sure that I feel comfortable talking to the GYN doctor that will give me service.

    Thanks for the tip to find an ob-gyn that takes time to clearly and completely explains things. With gynecology, this is something my wife is looking to find a doctor for, and having someone listens is her biggest thing she’s looking for. Shared values are also something that my wife is looking for with a doctor.

    This is some really good information about gynecologist. It is good to know that it would be smart to choose the right clinic. I liked that you pointed out that it would be smart to know where the location of the clinic. After all, it would be bad to have to drive a long way to get help.

  6. Gerty Gift

    I liked what you said about making sure to choose someone who respects your decisions and will help you with your health goals. We are moving soon and I’ve been really worried about having to find a new gynecologist. I’ve been so comfortable with the one I’ve had here, but I think that if I can find someone who I can really get along with, everything will be fine.
