Pelvic Examinations in Brooklyn

ID: #435495

A pelvic examination is a complete physical exam of a woman’s pelvic organs by a GYN health professional. A pelvic exam helps a health professional evaluate the size and position of the vagina, cervix, uterus, and ovaries. These OB/GYN services are an important part of preventive health care for all adult women. A pelvic exam is done to help detect certain cancers in their early stages, infections, *****ly transmitted infections (STIs), or other reproductive system problems.
Why It Is Done

A pelvic exam may be done:

• As part of a woman’s regular physical checkup. A Pap test may be done during the pelvic exam. For more information, see the topic Pap Test.
• To detect vaginal infections, such as yeast infections or bacterial vaginosis.
• To help detect *****ly transmitted infections (STIs), such as chlamydia, herpes, gonorrhea, trichomoniasis, or human papillomavirus (HPV).
• To help determine the cause of abnormal uterine or rectal bleeding.
• To evaluate pelvic organ abnormalities, such as uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, or uterine prolapse.
• To evaluate abdominal or pelvic pain.
• Before prescribing a method of birth control (contraception). Some methods of birth control, such as a diaphragm or intrauterine device, require a pelvic exam to make sure the device fits properly.
• Collect evidence in cases of suspected ***** assault.

Before a pelvic exam:

• Try to schedule the exam when you are not having your period, since blood can interfere with the results of a Pap test. But if you have a new vaginal discharge or new or increasing pelvic pain, a pelvic exam may be done while you are having your period.
• Do not use douches, tampons, vaginal medications, or vaginal sprays or powders for at least 24 hours.
• Do not have sex for 24 hours prior to the exam if you have abnormal vaginal discharge.
