Typically, you should schedule your first pregnancy visit with Dr. Bickman at eight or nine weeks pregnant. If you have experienced early pregnancy loss or are currently on blood thinners, we will want to see you earlier than eight weeks.
Many discomforts and changes in your body are normal parts of pregnancy, however, you should be seen immediately if you are experiencing bleeding or severe cramping, or if you simply have a feeling something is not right.
Most couples become pregnant within six months to a year of timed intercourse. If you have been trying to get pregnant unsuccessfully for over a year, you may need to schedule an infertility consult. Dr. Bickman and her ob-gyn team have helped many happy couples conceive, despite a variety of factors. Call our office to schedule a consultation.
Don’t keep stressing about it. Instead, make an appointment to come in for a visit immediately. The good news is, many are completely curable and all are treatable.
It is quite common. Many women experience the symptoms associated with menopause much earlier than their final period. You may be experiencing pre-menopause, which can include a variety of symptoms. These symptoms may include changes in your period, hot flashes, problems with your vagina or bladder, trouble sleeping, mood changes, or weight gain or loss. Do make an appointment with Dr. Bickman to verify that it is pre-menopausal symptoms and to rule out any other causes. She can also help to alleviate these troubling symptoms with hormonal and non-hormonal treatments.
