Why a regular gynecologist visit is so important

Many women start visiting a gynecologist as teens or young adults. A gynaecological screening can identify health issues as soon as possible so that you can get the treatment you need. During the visit, your doctor can detect problems even if they aren’t causing any noticeable symptoms.

 

Getting a prompt medical treatment for gynaecological conditions or STIs is important, as it can reduce the risk of potentially serious complications devloping in the future.

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 relationship with the gynecologist, you can feel confident in sharing your concerns. You can easily arrange a gynecological screening on FirstMed.

You might want to arrange the following types of gynaecological screening:

  • Smear test (cervical test) to check for the health of yout cervix and abnormal cells that could develop into cervical cancer. Women should start cervical test at age 21. Regular PAP smears are recommended for all women after the ages of 25.

 

  • 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
