Our gynecologists focus on preventive medicine to keep you healthy.
Preventive medicine works to keep you healthy before you even get sick. Regular gynecological visits and exams with a gynecologist are one of the main ways you can stay healthy across your lifespan. Our gynecologists, and many national and international health agencies, advise women of reproductive age (having their periods) to see a gynecologist once a year, even if they are not yet sexually active.
The first consultation with the gynecologist most often takes place at the start of sexual activity, with a view to prescribing contraception. Thereafter, the follow-up must last a lifetime, at the rate of at least one visit per year .
At your gynecology appointment you can discuss:
- family planning and pre-conception counseling
- prevention of sexually transmitted diseases
- Your risk factors for gynecological cancers
- Any other concerns you might have such as: Painful periods, pelvic pain, pain with sex, breast pain, changes in your menstrual cycles, changes in vaginal discharge, symptoms of menopause, or other health questions.
What can you expect at your Turo Park Gynecological Exam?
We know that many women are nervous before their gynecological exam and it is our goal to try to make you as comfortable as possible. We will tell you ahead of your visit what will happen so there are no surprises.
In general, our gynecologist will examine the outside of your vagina (called the perineum) and then your internal genital organs using a tool called a speculum. During this internal exam of your vagina, the gynecologist will be looking to make sure that your vagina, vaginal discharge, and cervix (the mouth of the uterus) all look healthy. Next the gynecologist will insert two fingers inside of your vagina and press on your belly with their other hand to feel the size and shape of your uterus and ovaries. The gynecologist will also examine your breasts for any lumps, bumps, or concerning changes.
In a younger or non-sexually-active patients, these internal examinations may not be performed. Pap smears for cervical cancer screening are performed only after age 25.
Given how common sexually-transmitted infections (STI) are and that some do not cause any noticeable symptoms, our gynecologists recommend frequent STI screenings for any sexually-active patients with a change in partner, symptoms, or other risk factors.
We can screen you for:
- Human Papilloma Virus
- Hepatitis B and C
Other non-sexually-transmitted infections we can screen for and treat include:
- Vaginal yeast and bacterial infections
- Urinary tract infections
It is helpful if you can provide any past gynecological medical history or records before your visit, especially prior mammogram, blood tests, STI screenings, or pap smears.
Be advised that you do not need to remove any of your pubic hair or use any feminine hygiene products prior to your gynecology appointment.
Two of the most important transitions in a woman’s body occur during pregnancy and menopause. Our English-speaking gynecologists can provide you with your own personalized plan of care and are here to guide you through what can be confusing and overwhelming times in your life.
