We don't want to give you another task to deal with during this pandemic, but this one is pretty important. On top of managing your new work-life, odd school schedules, and a pandemic at large, we want to remind you to keep your health in check during this tumultuous time.

Its hard enough to put ourselves first in general, but especially with the world being upside down. Dr. Naglaa Rizk said when the pandemic first started in New York and New Jersey, OBGYN visits were the first to drop, as patients deemed them unnecessary and didn't want to enter a doctor's office. 

Dr. Naglaa Rizk is an Assistant Professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Women’s Health at Rutgers University, and joins Dr. Taz to talk about heading to the doctor safely, and things women can do to protect their health at home during the pandemic, including DIY breast exams, at-home tests for HPV and fertility, and more!
