Gynecology Q & A

Why are gynecology exams important?

Gynecology exams are critically important for women of all ages because they include special assessments aimed at evaluating a woman's special health needs as she gets older and passes through different stages of life. A women's health can be optimized based on the specific health issue she is facing. Plus, gynecology exams can help identify subtle signs of diseases in their earliest stages so they can be appropriately and promptly treated. This also ensures women receive the health screenings and lifestyle guidance they need based on their individual risk factors.

What happens during a routine exam?

The visit starts with measurements of weight and blood pressure followed by a personal and family history to look for potential risk factors for disease. Lifestyle, any symptoms, as well as medications or supplements being taken are discussed. The exam includes an examination of the thyroid, breasts, heart, lungs, abdomen, and extremities. Then a pelvic exam, except in virgins, is gently performed along with a Pap test according to screening guidelines which will be determined at the visit.
