Gynecology - EXAMINATION PACKAGES FOR WOMEN
In the focus of our specialist outpatient clinic is the gynecological cancer screening, STD screening, and ultrasound diagnostics. Besides those, we also pay special attention to pediatric gynecology and the investigation and treatment of menopausal and infertility problems.
When is it recommended to contact a gynecology specialist?
- The abnormal amount, colour, smell or consistency of the vaginal discharge is often a consequence of the inflammation of the internal genital organs caused by an infection or STD.
- Abnormal vaginal discharge, burning and itching at the region of the vagina and the vulva can be caused by the overgrowth of the candida yeast, and it can lead to the inflammation of the uterine annexes and the ovaries.
- A more severe urinary tract infection or an infection caught at a public hot bath can lead to ovarian and tubal inflammation.
- A recurrent low abdominal pain can indicate a Chlamydia infection. It is a sexually transmitted disease which - in its chronic form - can cause abdominal adhesions and infertility.
- Warts at the inner side of the labia minora or in the vagina can indicate Humán Papilloma Vírus (HPV), which is a sexually transmitted virus. It has more than 130 known type, which are in some parts harmless, however, a substantial proportion of them play a role in the development of cervical carcinoma, so if it is not detected on time, it can even have fatal consequences.
- A higher pH, over 4.5 is favourable to the colonisation and overgrowth of the bacteria – this indicates a condition requiring gynecological treatment.

What happens during the gynecologist's visit?Our specialist first records your history during an informal, guided conversation, with your partner as well if you wish. After reviewing all prior, not only gynecological documentation, the specialist starts to collect information about your current complaints. Afterwards the specialist performs the gynecological examination consisting of bimanual palpation of the outer genitals, colposcopic examination of the vagina (examination of the uterine cervix, sample taking if needed). Pelvic ultrasound can be performed and in case of need, a smear can be taken. Finally, the specialist gives an opinion and if needed consults with you on the recommended therapy or further examinations.
What kind of ultrasound device is used for the gynecology examination?At MeDoc Health Center our specialists use the state of the art Zonare Z.One ultrasound device optimised for radiological and gynecological use.
