Gynecological examination – an gynecologist appointment.
Although some women find it difficult to go to the gynaecologist due to a variety of reasons , the truth is that from a health point of view, this appointment is a must, as it will enable you to prevent the risks of cancer and different STDs, as well as to review fertility options for future pregnancies.
The importance of an annual check up, gynecological examination
We believe in prevention as an essential tool in the fight against health problems. Therefore, a yearly visit to the gynaecologist is recommended when a woman’s sex life begins.It is a routine gynaecological examination primarily based on the Pap smear test, which allows the gynaecologist to find possible injury to the cervix or detect early stages of cervical cancer.
In either of these eventualities, we have the possibility of keeping the health problem under control, by way of specific medical follow-ups or surgery.
What is a Pap smear?
It is carried out for further analysis by taking a sample of cells from the vagina and cervix by speculoscopy ,introduction of a device called a speculum into the vagina.The sample is studied under the microscope using the method of Dr. Papanicolaou, and known for that reason as “Pap test”.
In spite of its almost routine nature, the Pap smear is a medical test that has achieved a remarkable reduction in the number of deaths due to cervical cancer.
