Do you go to the Doctor

for check ups even when your not sick, or do you have to be on death bed ?

I was a death bed type of person but last few years I go to Doctor on a regular schedule

I was a death-bed patient, but then I became diabetic. Now I go for that every six months, plus the eye doc, plus the dentist. You know what? It's no big deal. We guys aren't much for going to the doc, but when it's a regular thing it becomes routine. I found some nice docs which helps a lot. I seldom get the flu or infections, so I don't usually need to see the doc other than the regular checkups.

Regular doctor once a year for an oil change, every six months for A1C check, rheumatologist every 8 weeks for medicine check and blood work, eye doctor once a year, dentist twice a year.

I will fudge on the eye doctor and dentist but never the rheumatologist.

Another one here too. If it weren't for the fact that they make me go in every six months for my prescription refill I'd never step foot in there.

I have so many specialist, ENT, Cardio, Rhumatolgist, Gyno, that I don't even have a regular MD. I see all of the others every 3-4 months.

Please women, at least visit your gyno annually. I skipped one year. 2008. Felt sick in 2009 at Disneyworld, female type issues. Left a day early. After visit and pap found out I may have cancer. They did biopsies and I did have cancer.
Uterine and cervical.
I am fine now.
But wonder what would have happened if I hadn't skipped a year.

Hopefully this is not rude but how old were you when diagnosed? I ask because my OB told me at my last appt that they don't do pap smears every year anymore. If you have a normal pap, you then go on a three year cycle. I see her every year for the basic once over (pelvic exam etc..) but I was wondering if the three year rule changes once you hit a certain age.

I am 33 and have had two children. Hoping to have one more but we have been having TTTC and I guess I am getting a little anal about wanting to know everything is working okay (if you know what I mean) so I am curious as to what you have been told about annual paps.
Thanks!

I don't go to the doctor unless I'm really sick. Naturally doctor's offices are full of sick people, why expose myself? I do understand that there are sick people everywhere but there's a better chance of catching something in a smaller enclosed space, like a waiting room where people are sneezing, coughing, and vomiting.

I was also told the same thing but opted to still have them every year and I am really glad because this year I had my very first abnormal pap smear. Thank God it was the lowest form of abnormal cells and there was no HPV but I will still have to have another one in 6 months. SO if you are given a choice between one and three years I would just suck it up and do it every year. Oh and I am 38.
