Most people, for some reason are intimidated by their Primary Healthcare Provider. Maybe it’s “white coat syndrome,” maybe it’s a lack of preparedness. Whatever the reason, here are some tips on how to prepare for your yearly Well-Visit, also known as a physical or check up!
- Know the date, time, and location of your visit.
- Make arrangements for transportation if needed.
- Have your insurance information is ready.
- Write down questions to ask your doctor.
- Practice ways to share how you’re feeling with your doctor.
Consent is an agreement between participants to engage in intimate and/or sexual activity. Consent doesn’t have to be verbal, but verbally agreeing to different activities can help both you and your partner respect each other’s boundaries. Talk about what terms like “hooking up” or “going all the way” means to each partner. Giving consent for one activity, one time, does not mean giving consent for increased or recurring intimate/sexual contact.
Consent is about communication. Consent is about boundaries.
And it should happen every time. You can change your mind at any time.
You can withdraw consent at any point if you fell uncomfortable and wish to stop.
Consider having these conversations during a time when you are not being physically intimate.
