So Alicia's thread had me thinking...

How many of you guys go to the dr annually for a physical? I'm not talking about the Gyn/Pap. We all know we need to be doing those annually. I'm talking to your GP for an all-over physical.

Personally, I went 2 years ago, but don't go to the dr unless I need to (which THANKFULLY is very rarely) I do go get my pap annually, and that is about it.

Just curious!!

our insurance requires it (healthy blue plan from blue cross blue shield) so we get our sugar and cholesterol and all that checked annually along with weight blood pressure etc...I also get my pap annually even though they say you don't have to over age 30 I think it is I still prefer to get it yearly just in case

I have just gotten the pap/pelvic exam nothing else really but I do go in and get checked out when I don't feel well or feel like something is off.

Just my annual with my OB/GYN. I don't think I've had a regular physical since being an adult, actually. I have had my OB/GYN run bloodwork for me here and there for cholesterol check since I don't visit a regular dr. But, at my pp appointment this time they did a pap for me and said it was good for 3 years. So I don't know if that means I need to wait 3 years before going in again? Yay, no pap, though!

Thank you Ryan & Alex's Mom for the beautiful siggy!

I was just thinking of this. I was telling DH that I really ought to go in. I don't remember the last time I had a physical that wasn't my "yearly." In fact, last time I tried to make a DR appt. they told me I'd have to register as a new patient since I hadn't been there in years! I think too many women use their OBGYN as their doctor, but I don't think they necessarily look at everything (as it's not their job)! So I plan to make myself an appt sometime soon.

I see a NP who does a pelvic/pap every year, as well as check all the other stuff.....I am a fairly healthy person (weight, blood pressure-wise, ect) but get sick a LOT. Seems like during the winter months I am in there at least once a month with something--bronchitis, ect ect. I have had pneumonia 5 times in the past 10 years (once while pregnant with Kaedence), so my immune system is nada.

I had these weird looking moles I wanted checked out they werent moles the were like benign *crap* now I forget the word. All was good there.
I just asked my doctor a month ago (when I went crazy hearing stories of so many people in the 30's dieing of random heart attacks)
and he said it isnt typical to get your choloestrol and everything checked unless you have family history of young aged things happening till about 40. Although he said you can get it done its never to early to document changes as you get older.
Thank you Ashypoo for my wonderful signature! (and Kiliki and Bam for also making me one which I will change next week!)
