So after months (ok, maybe years) of putting off finding a new OB/GYN down here and making an appt, I finally decided to stop procrastinating today.
I felt like a waiter was taking my order. Except instead of "soup or salad?" and "mashed or baked potato?" I had to choose between day or evening? male or female? nurse practitioner or doctor?
The first 2 questions were easy but I wasn't sure about the 3rd one. I said it didn't matter so I could take the first available appointment and got an appt with a nurse practitioner in a few weeks.
I figure since it's just for a routine check up it doesn't really matter but was wondering if there were any major advantages or disadvantages having one versus a MD. When I'm ready for kids, would I need to switch to a doc?
Any opinions, experiences, pros/cons would be appreciated.
