Yes … but if you’re a new patient you might get an appt a few weeks out.  If you do, you can go to those after hour  care places, they have all the test stuff and can fill scripts on site.

You can see whoever you want really. If you want your regular gyno’s office to have the record of the one time visit you can request that they send them the medical records. Some will require a “meeting” before they will actually do an annual though so you might have to call around to find someone who will just give you one the first time you meet.

Not sure how your gyno’s office will handle refilling your BC when you see another dr but you can just call and ask. Or, just ask the new doctor to flll it for you.

Like a PP said, many times gynocologists have new patient waiting periods. Around here they are generally around 3 months. But, a lot of the time midwives/Women’s Health NP’s and new Gynos have a very short waiting period, only a couple days or less!

If it is something very time sensitive you could always go to an urgent care place.

 If you’ve ever had a yeast infection before, you know what it feels like and you’re probably ok to treat yourself with an over the counter remedy. You can also buy AZO strips to test for a UTI. If you think you have a UTI, you can also go to urgent care. Like PPs have said, doctors often have a long wait for new patients.

Yup, I went to a different GYN than my usual last year because I wanted to get tested for Save-The-Date Cards and HIV before my current SO and I became intimate and my usual GYN didn’t have an appointment for months…I couldn’t wait that long! lol..I ended up liking her better than my usual GYN that I had been with for over 10 years so now she is my new GYN.
