Instances Requiring An Emergency ObGyn Appointment
Some symptoms that occur early in pregnancy and may cause concern for a patient may be better treated by an obstetrician, particularly during an emergency appointment or via a phone call. These include pain, cramping, bleeding, nausea and vomiting. Problems that occur later in pregnancy that may require urgent attention include decreased fetal movement, pain, contractions, bleeding, excessive swelling, severe headaches, visual disturbances, leaking fluid and bladder infection symptoms.
Iregular or Heavy Bleeding
Irregular or heavy bleeding is a cause for concern. With an emergency ObGyn appointment, your doctor will be able to assess the problem and keep a more serious condition from developing.
Abnormal cramping and pain, with or without a period, can be assessed during an emergency OBGYN appointment. You can be seen while the problem is actively occurring and a diagnosis may have a better chance of being reached without the time and expense of an emergency room visit.
When a patient suffers from abdominal or pelvic swelling, a same day gynecologist appointment may be the correct answer. Gynecologists can utilize their specific knowledge of this area of the anatomy and work toward finding a solution while sparing patients further stress and discomfort.
Breast problems can also be treated with emergency ObGyn appointments. An ObGyn is able to examine and treat breast pain, leakage or pus, swelling and tenderness, or red streaks that may extend from the breast to the arms or chest.
