Gynecological Examination

A gynecological examination is a physical examination that focuses on a woman’s reproductive system. It is typically performed by a gynecologist or other medical professional trained in women’s health. The examination usually includes a pelvic exam, breast exam, and a pap smear. During the pelvic exam, the doctor will examine the vagina, cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries for any abnormalities. The breast exam involves checking for any lumps or unusual changes in the breast tissue. The pap smear involves collecting a sample of cells from the cervix to test for cervical cancer or other abnormalities. The frequency of gynecological exams depends on a woman’s age, health, and personal medical history, but generally, women should have a pelvic exam and pap smear every one to three years.
