Key Points

  • It’s important to get the care you need to stay healthy. If you missed a routine checkup because of COVID-19, schedule a new visit as soon as possible.

  • You may see your gynecologist in person or with a virtual (telehealth) visit. Ask about office safety policies or telehealth instructions before your appointment.
