You need an annual gynecology exam to stay on top of your health. Your yearly women’s wellness visit allows the team of women at My OB/GYN Specialists to monitor your health and identify potential health concerns early for treatment and prevention.
The visit may include:
The team at My OB/GYN Specialists provide a very thorough gynecology exam, which includes a physical exam, pelvic exam, and a discussion of your specific health needs or concerns.
The physical examination at My OB/GYN Specialists is similar to what you might expect from your general practitioner — the women’s health expert checks your height, weight, blood pressure, heart rate, and palpation of your organs.
During the pelvic exam, your female specialist examines the size and shape of your uterus and your ovaries. During this part of the exam, you sit on a special gynecology table with your feet in stirrups so she can examine your vagina and cervix.
Your female doctor may also perform a Pap test during the pelvic exam to test your cervical cells for abnormalities that might indicate cervical cancer.
In addition to the Pap test — if you’re over age 30 — the physicians at My OB/GYN Specialists may recommend a human papillomavirus (HPV) test. Certain strains of the HPV virus increase your risk of cervical cancer.
The gynecology exam helps set a foundation of health and direct care. If you need special tests or procedures, the team at My OB/GYN Specialists will let you know at the gynecologic examination. If possible, the test or procedure can be done during your gynecologic visit, otherwise, a separate appointment may be made.
The women’s health experts are trained surgeons and perform both inpatient and outpatient surgery when needed at Baptist Hospital in Miami.
