When was the last time you went to your OBGYN? It’s important to get regular checkups, but it’s also important to feel empowered to ask the questions you need answered! Your OBGYN is there for you, so we want everyone to feel comfortable and prepared to get the info they need. When we released our Sex Ed Survey a few weeks ago, we got to hear from 2000 of you about the things you wish you had asked your OBGYN. Read on for some inspiration for your next appointment!
