Protect Your Fertility and Visit Your Doctor

  1. Visit your ob-gyn once per year. In addition to cancer prevention, you can also protect your fertility.
  2. Pay attention to your medical procedures, and work with your doctor to prevent inappropriate medical treatment (e.g., surgery done prematurely that could later affect your fertility).
  3. Listen to your body—if you have irregular or painful menstrual cycles, your body may be trying to tell you something. See your doctor.
