On our show today, we have Dr. Rodriguez, who is here to tell us about women’s health. Welcome, Dr. Rodriguez. Dr. Rodriguez: Thanks for having me. Matt: Tell us. As a gynecologist, what one piece of advice would you give to women to help them stay healthy? Dr. Rodriguez: Well, as part of their regular checkups, they should be getting a gynecological exam. Matt: This may surprise you, but I’ve never had one. Ha, ha! Dr. Rodriguez: When women come in for an exam, I check several things. I do a breast exam to check for lumps to detect breast cancer. I also show women how to do this at home on their own. Matt: Is that all? Dr. Rodriguez: No, I do a pelvic exam and a Pap smear to rule out cervical cancer. I also look for anything problematic, such as unusual discharge or signs of STDs. Matt: That sounds painful. Ouch! Dr. Rodriguez: It’s not painful and it’s very important. I also discuss with women their menstrual cycles, issues related to being sexually active, birth control methods, fertility issues, and menopause. Matt: I didn’t know what I was missing! Dr. Rodriguez: My point is that it’s important for women to talk to their doctor about any medical issues they may have. Matt: And my point is: I’m glad I’m not a woman! Dr. Rodriguez: That’s not the message… Matt: Thanks for coming in, doctor. And now, let’s talk about something really important – celebrity news! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
