    i actually never visited doc unless some issue. Not even annual physical or paps. Only for pregnancy time scheduled visits. Not even for my dental checks up.. for which i am paying so high to insurance.
    But now, in this covid situation, yesterday i thought to going to doc to get some blood work done. I could have delayed that easily, since my blood work was needed to be done last year but i am lazy. Suddenly, i got some enlightment and took the appointment for hair also and doc.
    I never go to hair salon or parlors...may b once in year or 2.
    Not suggesting anything to anyone. Use your instinct. For me, it was impulsive, too tired or fed up. I also hear people not going to doc for small reasons.

    there are some procedures that can be postponed and some cannot be even in this covid it has became very big hassle for each and everyone working in this field and also for patient at same time.

    as i am pregnant i got to go see my obg every month and also for ultrasounds and lab works as its all at same place and same people dont have to be seeing different people everytime.

    I understand. I am like you. I will not go to doctor unless it's necessary. Usually manage at home and go for unknown issues or urgent issues.
    This time I am really cursing my fate or karma or whatever. I don't know how this issue started without any cause and going to different doctors/specialists without definite answer. I couldn't stop thinking about it as it's very painful and totally affecting my quality of my life. I even talk to my PCP. She is so good and will not refer if not needed and have a conservative approach. She told me to not to sit at home considering covid. Few issues have to be addressed earlier and referred me to doctors.
    So, no comments on that. You won't believe me. I will be very scary and nervous after every doctor visit and keep watching my symptoms. We don't know whom we are exposed to.
    Few of my friends been to parlor and massage spa places. If you feel comfortable doing it,that's more important.

    I did all my preventive care last month. So, yes, got all my dental, PAP, blood work etc. done and also my first mammogram. Doctors' offices only let one person at a time and ask you to text once you get in the parking lot. A nurse would come and get you when it's your turn.
