An Insight On Gynecological Visits
It is essential for women to maintain their reproductive health. Visiting a gynecologist for at least one time in a whole year is the key to get good health. According to an estimate, women need to visit their gynecologists from the age of 21. The expert doctor will perform your pelvic exam and breast examination. Some other examinations include pap smears, vaginal infections, STD (sexually transmitted diseases), and irregular periods. Our health experts recommend making a visit to your gynecologist if you are sexually active or you are planning to become active in this phase. Furthermore, our experts provide detailed information regarding these important aspects, prevention methods, and other related services to our prospective customers. In addition to it, if you are planning to become pregnant then your visit will provide you more information regarding pregnancy and fertility treatments that you can get for your benefit.
Here, you may wonder what’s included in preventive healthcare. Even if you are not having any symptoms that can bother you but you need to go for screening tests so that prevention can be possible. The purpose of screening tests is to prevent the onset of any disease even before the revealing of symptoms. Our medical experts may change the guidelines for screening tests with the passage of time just because of change in available evidence.
However, we have got to know that most of our patients want to get guidance and services related to general health issues from their gynecologist as well as getting gynecological health care services. What may include in general health??? It includes services related to disorders that may happen normally. Well, it is not something exceptional. We always try to provide best services to our prospective services. So, our gynecologists also provide counseling and routine screening so that prevention from any kind of disorder can be possible. Following are some of the general health problems:
Let’s have a look at the procedure.
- Information – Awareness is important, so the first and foremost step is to provide you enough information to let you aware regarding different problems. How these problems may occur and what can be circumstances. When you visit us, you may get general information from our medical experts or even you may let them know if you are feeling any symptoms. After knowing your presenting complaints (if you have any), our gynecologist will provide you related information. Furthermore, we are always here to provide you the answer to your all queries. So, you don’t need to hesitate and ask us freely.
- Prevention – in the next step of the visit, our gynecologist will let you know the preventive methods for various related diseases. Remember, ‘care is better than cure’. In the same way, it is best if you prevent yourself from the onset of any disease instead of getting treatment afterward. So, we are here to provide you preventive measures whether it is about your general health or reproductive health.
- Examination – It is not the whole, our doctor will do your proper examination for the satisfaction of both yours and hers. We don’t just rely on the presenting complaints of the patients as we are here to examine you. It may happen at times that you are not aware of the complications that are going inside you. So, a detailed examination is a MUST.
- Treatment – Unfortunately, if our screening tests and examination reveals that you have any kind of disease or health issue then we will suggest you the best possible treatment for that. In fact, you don’t need to be worried when you are going to visit Euromed for your treatment. We have a complete assessment and treatment plan for you so that you can enjoy your healthy life.
The examination that is a must in every visit is your breast and pelvic exam.
- Breast Exam
This examination just requires almost a minute. This short assessment procedure is vital in order to monitor if there are irregularities or lumps in your breast tissues. You should inform your doctor right at the moment if you feel any discomfort or pain during the assessment. Also, our doctor will let you know the method through which you can do self-breast exams as it is essential to check any kind of irregularities and lumps regularly. Our doctors may recommend mammogram screening for you if you are more than 35 years.
- Pelvic Exam
This examination requires almost 5 to 7 minutes in completion. The female genitalia is assessed in this assessment. A lubricated metal tool (known as speculum) is inserted into the genital area. Manual assessment of reproductive organs is also performed. Our doctor will ask you to lie down on the examination table in a specific position instructed by her. Initially, you may feel embarrassed but it is the requirement. In addition to it, we do care for the confidentiality of our patients so we have a relation of trust and honest with you. However, you may ask any query or let us know any concern related to the treatment or even sexual health.
