What can you expect?

Patients should know as much as they can about what the exams look like so that when they come there is no fear or anxiety. Our gynecology exams include a number of diagnostic procedures that determine the health of the female genital tract.

An ordinary exam procedure usually begins with an open conversation between the doctor and patient in order to get as much information about their condition. Patients are encouraged to speak freely about their current state, there is no point in being shy when your health is concerned.

This is followed by an inquiry into personal and family medical history – the doctor will ask about previous illnesses the patient or the patient’s family had. Once all the information is acquired, the exam can start. A complete rundown of the main exam procedure looks like this:

  • Examination of the outer genital parts

  • Examination of the  vaginal walls using a speculum

  • Taking a Pap smear and vaginal fluid smear
  • Assessment of the characteristics of the pelvis, cervix, uterus, ovaries, and oviduct

  • (As needed) Ultrasound exam of the pelvic region using a vaginal probe (can be done above the belly as well) to inspect the inside of the uterus (endometrium), the structure and size of the ovaries

  • (As needed) diagnostic lab testing

Once the main part of the exam is done, the doctor will give you a final opinion and prescribe medication as needed. Further diagnostic procedures can occur depending on each case.

Gynecology exams usually last around 30 minutes or more. If you have questions or if you want to schedule an appointment, please call our office today.

Doctor Checking Up on Mother and Daughter


While many women shy away from visiting the gynecologist during their period, it’s completely fine to keep your appointment. In fact, most gynecologists would recommend it. They are used to seeing vaginal bleeding, so there’s no need to feel embarrassed. If you still feel extra uncomfortable or have bad cramping, though, it’s perfectly understandable to reschedule your appointment.

Gynecologists are doctors who specialize in women’s reproductive health. These doctors treat an array of conditions, including polycystic ovarian syndrom (PCOS), infertility, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, and sexual dysfunction. Every gynecologist must complete four years of medical school, along with an internship and residency. To become a board-certified gynecologist, you must pass two exams conducted by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

There is no need to trim, shave, or wax your pubic hair prior to your gynecological appointment. Your gynecologist will want you to feel as comfortable as possible, so do what feels right for you. While grooming is not necessary, it is important to make ensure that your vagina is clean by taking a shower either the night before or morning of your appointment.
