What can I expect during a gynecology exam?
During a routine gynecology exam, Dr. Gabbay reviews your personal and family medical history and discusses any new symptoms or concerns you have. In most cases, she performs a pelvic exam to identify abnormalities affecting your reproductive health and manually examines your breasts for lumps or other signs of breast cancer.
As part of your pelvic exam, Dr. Gabbay may complete a Pap smear, a simple test that involves a swab of cells at the opening of your cervix. Abnormal cells in this area can be the first sign of cervical cancer.
Additionally, Dr. Gabbay may test for STDs during your pelvic exam, including a swab test for human papillomavirus (HPV). HPV can increase your risk of cervical cancer. The cell samples Dr. Gabbay collects during your Pap test or HPV test go to a medical lab for further analysis.
Your routine pelvic exam is also a great time to discuss any questions and concerns you have about your reproductive or sexual health. Dr. Gabbay provides a variety of resources to also enhance your overall health, including recommendations for a good diet and exercise plan.
