Q: How often do I need a pap smear and gynecologic exam?
A: You may have heard that the most recent guidelines suggest a pap smear only every 3-5 years. This is correct, with the exact number of years depending on your age, whether you’ve had abnormal pap smears in the past, and some other factors. It is important to note, however, that you should come for an ANNUAL EXAM yearly, as the pap only checks for cervical cancer and pre-cancer, while the visit also checks for breast/uterine/ovarian/vulvar cancer, infections, and many other problems that can contribute to poor health.
Q: When should my daughter start seeing a gynecologist?
A: While pap smears don’t generally need to start until age 21, there are other potential reasons for seeing a gynecologist sooner. Potential for sexual activity and problems with periods would be examples. Gardasil counseling (the HPV vaccine) would be another example, if your pediatrician or family doctor has not already covered this topic.
Q: Are there nuisance problems with which you can help?
A: Absolutely. We can help improve your quality of life if you are bothered by heavy or painful menstrual bleeding, PMS, menopausal symptoms, or urine leakage, to name a few. Let us sit down and evaluate you to determine the best set of options for your particular circumstance.[/tab]
