Question and answer
  • QUESTION What happens when you see a gynecologist?
  • ANSWER When you have a gynecological examination, you lie down in a special chair, with your legs apart and resting on special leg supports. The gynecologist will first examine your external genital organs, and then your ovaries and uterus, using his or her hands and fingers. The gynecologist will then use a small spatula-like device known as a speculum to look up into the vagina and cervix. Many gynecologists will also carry out an ultrasound examination. The ultrasound equipment emits and receives ultrasound simultaneously. It is placed inside the vagina and shows, amongst other things, the shape of the uterus and the ovaries. It also allows the gynecologist to check that there are no myomas (harmless tumours formed from muscle tissue) or other types of tumour.
