The initial gynecologist consultation at the VIRTUS Clinic takes at least one hour. During this time, the doctor:
Collects anamnesis (medical background) through interviewing the patient: the first menstrual period, pregnancies, operations, cancer related diseases in maternal relatives
Examines and palpates the breast
Examines the external and internal genitals in the gynecological examination chair
To diagnose asymptomatic diseases, the doctor refers for ultrasound examination of the pelvic organs, thyroid and mammary glands. The further algorithm of actions depends on the accurate diagnosis. If the patient is healthy, the doctor will recommend a colposcopy examination at least once a year.

An unscheduled examination by a gynecologist should be performed if there is:
Increase or decrease in menstrual blood loss
Change in the menstrual cycle regularity
Breast tenderness (normally, the breast becomes sensitive 3-7 days before menstruation)
Pain syndrome — during sexual intercourse, coughing or sneezing
Sudden weight gain or loss
What Kind of Tests Does a Gynecologist Do?
Standard methods of laboratory tests in gynecology are bacterioscopic smear and PAP test (cytology). If there are visible changes in the cervix, a targeted histology is performed and the tissue of the abnormal focus is dissected.
In the case of endocrine dysfunction in different phases of the menstrual cycle, the blood tests for the level of female hormones will be ordered.
How to Prepare for the Procedure of Gynecologist's Examination?
It is recommended to visit a gynecologist in the second phase of the menstrual cycle, from the 10th day after your menstruation started. You should keep sex abstinence about 2-3 days before the gynecologist’s examination. On the day of your appointment — wash yourself with water, without excess soap or cleaning agents used.
