Welcome to “Talk with the Doc” – a new series brought to you by Love Wellness that has our favorite medical professionals answering our health questions and addressing curiosities and common misconceptions.
With women’s health issues on the minds of 50% of the American population (not to mention women worldwide), we felt it appropriate to have a straight-forward, no B.S. chat about our vaginas with an award-winning OB/GYN. Meet Dr. Lindsay Appel, OB/GYN at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, MD.
Hi Dr. Appel! Thanks for chatting with us today. Can you tell us the most common reasons that women come in to see you at your practice?
As an OB/GYN, I see women for a variety of reasons including pregnancy, annual exams, and “problem visits”. One of the most common reasons for a “problem visit” is concern about vaginal itching, irritation, dryness, and changes in vaginal discharge.
Dr. Lindsay Appel earned her medical degree and completed her Residency in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Sciences at the University of Maryland School of Medicine where she received multiple awards, including recognition for excellence in teaching.
Dr. Lindsay Appel has participated in several OB-GYN research presentations at professional conferences, including the American Congress of Obstetrics and Gynecology Annual Clinical Meeting.
