Matt:  Hello, viewers!  On our show today, we have Dr. Rodriguez, who is here to tell us about women’s health.  Welcome, Dr. Rodriguez.

Dr. Rodriguez:  Thanks for having me.

Matt:  Tell us.  As a gynecologist, what one piece of advice would you give to women to help them stay healthy?

Dr. Rodriguez:  Well, as part of their regular checkups, they should be getting a gynecological exam.

Matt:  This may surprise you, but I’ve never had one.  Ha, ha!

Dr. Rodriguez:  When women come in for an exam, I check several things.  I do a breast exam to check for lumps to detect breast cancer.  I also show women how to do this at home on their own.

Matt:  Is that all?

Dr. Rodriguez:  No, I do a pelvic exam and a Pap smear to rule out cervical cancer.  I also look for anything problematic, such as unusual discharge or signs of STDs.

Matt:  That sounds painful.  Ouch!

Dr. Rodriguez:  It’s not painful and it’s very important.  I also discuss with women their menstrual cycles, issues related to being sexually active, birth control methods, fertility issues, and menopause.

Matt:  I didn’t know what I was missing!

Dr. Rodriguez:  My point is that it’s important for women to talk to their doctor about any medical issues they may have.

Matt:  And my point is: I’m glad I’m not a woman!

Dr. Rodriguez:  That’s not the message…

Matt:  Thanks for coming in, doctor.  And now, let’s talk about something really important – celebrity news!
