It is unlikely that there will be a woman who considers the examination by a gynecologist a pleasant procedure. Out of false modesty, we try to avoid cabinets with the inscription «Gynecologist» and go there when all the advice of friends has been tried to no avail and there is no longer to endur. Although everyone knows that a timely visit to a doctor could save us from many troubles associated with the health of the genital area.
Who should contact a gynecologist?
First of all, the specialists of the Bogoliuby Medical Center recommend a visit to the gynecologist-reproductologist :
- girls planning to have sex, for expert advice on proper contraception;
- women who have sex — a preventive measure once a year;
- women planning a pregnancy;
- 1.5-2 months after birth, or immediately - if there are complaints
Preparing for a gynecological examination Well, you finally decided:«That’s enough, tomorrow I visit gynecologist!» Now is the time to talk about preparing for the upcoming visit. A day before the upcoming visit to the doctor, try to exclude sexual contact, otherwise, due to the presence of seminal fluid in the vagina, errors in the results of clinical studies are possible. It is still advisable to empty the bladder and, if possible, the intestines.
To feel comfortable, take a shower, change your underwear. You should not douche before visiting doctor, in case not to change the microflora of the vagina.
We have already written above about false modesty, which brings us nothing but troubles, so do not hide information regarding your intimate health.
We would like to remind you, dear women, that often the early stages of cancer in gynecology are asymptomatic and, neglecting the annual gynecological examination, you neglect your health, and even life. High cancer mortality among employed women of reproductive age is not horror stories invented by evil gynecologists. Gather your courage, drop your fears and grab a calendar. So when do we go to the gynecologist?
