Preparation, diagnosis, initial consultation

Consultation with a gynecological surgeon begins with the patient’s medical history. The doctor will ask about existing complaints, symptoms, menstrual cycle, intimate life, etc. Then an external and internal examination is performed, and tests ordered. An internal examination takes 5–10 minutes and includes:

  • examination of the vagina and cervix in the mirrors;
  • smear;
  • bimanual pelvic examination.

After the physical examination, the doctor orders a number of instrumental exams:

  • appendages;
  • Colposcopy.

If necessary, additional examinations may be prescribed such as blood tests for hormones, cervical cytology, hysteroscopy, biopsy, CT, MRI, and diagnostic laparoscopy.

A visit to a gynecological surgeon is best planned during the second week of the monthly cycle, after the end of menstruation, as this will provide the most accurate picture of the patient’s condition. Of course in emergency cases involving acute pain, bleeding and other warning signs, the patient should be seen by a doctor immediately.

  • 2-3 days prior to the examination, the patient should refrain from sexual activity;
  • for transvaginal ultrasound and colposcopy, the patient must have an empty bladder.

No complicated preparation is required before a consultation with a gynecological surgeon.
