What includes gynecological examination>
After the conversation, there is an examination that does not last long and with good preparation it is completely painless. First, the external genital area is examined, and then, with the aid of speculum, an examination of the vagina and cervix is performed and the PAPA test is taken. By doing regularly PAPA tests and following the instructions of a gynecologist, you can decrease uterine cancer by 90%.
Very often women think that a PAPA test is also meant to test sexually transmitted diseases at the same time, but this is not the case. Namely, by doing the PAPA test, it is determined whether there are abnormalities of the epithelium on our cervix, but if we want to investigate the inflammation in more details or make screening for sexually transmitted diseases, we have to do the targeted swabs, such as the swipe of Chlamydia trachomatis, Mycoplasma hominis, Ureaplasma urealyticum, Gardnerella vaginalis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, HPV viruses and Herpes simplex, as well as the parasite Trichomonas vaginalis.
During the examination is determined the degree of purity that represents the microscopic analysis of the vaginal discharge, a native preparation is observed in which epithelial cells, physiologically present lactobacilli, leukocytes, bacteria, Trichomonas vaginalis and yeast are analyzed. Then there is a bimanual examination that will give your gynecologist an insight into the accommodation, shape, size and painful sensitivity of the uterus and ovaries.
If you are troubled by doubt, or if you have symptoms of inflammation, you can do it during the examination in consultation with your gynecologist.
