Visiting a doctor for a regular pelvic exam is crucial to maintaining women's health. During this exam, the doctor will perform a full check of a woman's pelvic organs. Often, this procedure includes a pap smear.
Pelvic exams help doctors determine the cause for any discomfort, pain, or abnormal symptoms. Most importantly, these tests can screen for many signs that lead to gynecologic cancers. During a pelvic exam, your doctor can diagnose:
-Vaginal infections, like a yeast infection
-Sexually transmitted infections
-The cause of abnormal uterine bleeding
-More severe issues, like uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, uterine prolapse, and gynecologic cancers.
During a Pelvic Exam, your doctor inspects your genital area for lesions and your pelvic organs for masses or enlargement. This exam screens for a variety of gynecological conditions and cancers.
