What to expect at your gynecological visit

Your type of gynecological visit will depend on the types of symptoms or tests that you are having. The first gynecology visit takes approximately 30 minutes. You will meet with your gynecologist and you will describe the issue you're experiencing. It's important you give as much detail as possible. ​

Your gynaecologist will then perform an external and/or internal examination depending on what is required. During the consultation, for further investigation and formulating a diagnosis, your doctor might need to do ultrasound or perform some additional blood or swab tests.  
For example, you may undergo a general pelvic exam and you can talk to our clinicians about general conditions like premenstrual syndrome (PMS), heavy or irregular menstrual bleeding, endometriosis, fibroids, and polycystic ovarian syndrome; or you may wish to discuss contraceptive issues, sexual difficulties, an abnormal PAP test and testing for HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) and other STDs (sexually transmitted diseases). Alternatively, you may wish to discuss fertility issues like premature ovarian failure or recurrent miscarriage, or simply eliminate doubts about potential reproductive health problems, plus menopause and possible associated issues like vaginal atrophy and vulval conditions.

After a thorough examination, your gynaecology expert will then talk you through the next steps, including your treatment options and any potential need for specialist referral.

At FirstMed, we understand that every woman's needs are as unique as she is. We strive to provide excellent care and support for a broad range of gynecological needs. If you have any concerns or questions, get in touch with our team. 

Why a regular gynecological visit is so important

OBGYN Visit_edited.jpg

It is important to understand your genital and reproductive health by establishing baseline values, discussing personal and genetic risk factors, and evaluating any symptoms or concerns. By building an early, trusting relationship with a gynecologist, you can feel more confident in sharing your concerns.

Women should start regular cervical screening when they become sexually active. Many women start visiting a gynecologist as teenagers. Regular gynecological screening can identify health issues early so that you can get the treatment you need. During your appointments, your doctor may also detect problems, even if they aren’t causing any noticeable symptoms.

Routine annual screening is a good idea for all females who are sexually active. Getting prompt medical treatment for gynecological conditions or STIs is important, as it can reduce the risk of future development of potentially serious complications.


You might want to consider arranging the following types of gynaecological screening:

  • PAP smear (cervical test) to check the health of your cervix and for abnormal cells that could develop into cervical cancer. Regular cervical testing via PAP smears is recommended for all females who are sexually active.


  • STD screening to look for sexually transmitted infections such as Chlamydia, HIV, Herpes 1 and 2 or syphilis. Regular screening is recommended for all women who are sexually active. Read more about STD screening.


  • Regular gynecological check up to check for common gynecological conditions.
