Brooklyn Gynecological Exam
Providing a safe, friendly, and informative GYN exam for you visit is our goal. Excellent bedside manner and making sure your needs are met is what we strive to achieve for every patient. There are four total parts of the GYN exam, and each plays an important role in evaluating your overall health. These parts are as follows:
One part of the process is the pelvic exam. To begin, you’ll be lying on an examination table. Once you’re as comfortable as possible and the doctor gets your consent, the exam can begin. If you opted for any third person to accompany you during the exam, they will be situated in a position that maintains your personal privacy. During this process, it’s best to relax as much as possible to prevent tensing your muscles and limit the discomfort as much as possible.
Your doctor will examine the vulva and the labia first to see if there are any signs of abnormalities. These can include various signs of irritation, swelling, redness, and sexually transmitted diseases. Once the external examination is finished, your doctor will use a medical instrument called a speculum to examine the interior of the vagina. Once in place, the device will be opened, allowing the doctor to examine the cervix.
After the initial pelvic exam, your doctor will proceed with the pap smear while the speculum is in place. This procedure takes samples of your cervical cells to test them for cancer, precancerous abnormalities, and certain sexually transmitted diseases such as human papillomavirus. Once it’s complete, the cell sample will be sent to a lab for analysis. After that, you should get the results back within two weeks.
The importance of pap smears for women cannot be understated. Pap smears are important to catch any abnormalities early to prevent any major problems in the future. Cervical cancer is one of the most common forms of carcinoma in the United States. If it is not detected early, it can spread and impact your overall health leading to hysterectomy.
To conclude this test, your doctor will perform a quick bimanual exam to check your uterus and ovaries. The speculum is removed and the doctor will then insert a lubricated and gloved finger into your vagina and press down on your stomach with the other hand.
As part of your primary care, the next step is the breast exam, and this is easy. Your doctor will palpate your breasts to find any lumps, discharge, or abnormal thickening. You shouldn’t feel any pain from this exam, and your gynecologist can even show you how to give yourself a monthly personal breast exam.
Typically, you’ll have to provide a urine sample during your visit. This is to check for various factors, including your kidney health and any potential infections. Additionally, a pregnancy test may be run.
How Do I Prepare for My Brooklyn Gynecologist Exam?
If you are looking for a Brooklyn GYN practice that offers compassionate bedside manners, you have come to the right place. Our medical practice in the Sheepshead Bay area in Brooklyn has been serving the community for years.
Preparing for your GYN exam is straightforward. First, don’t schedule your exam when you are having your period. Blood can interfere with the exam and tamper the results. However, if you have anything like irregular or heavy periods, please contact your doctor before scheduling the visit.
Second, hold off on any significant personal grooming before your exam. For example, some hair removal techniques can cause inflammation which can make the exam challenging.
Third, make sure you don’t douche. The doctor needs to examine discharge to evaluate the hormonal balance during the exam.
Fourth, if you feel that you are sick, please consider rescheduling your appointment. We want every visit to our location to be a pleasant one for you.
