Gynecological Services Q & A

Care Access Adult Health Clinic

What is included in an annual GYN exam?

An annual gynecological exam is used to evaluate your reproductive health and identify any potential risks that may be present. Nurse Practitioner Adeniran performs several tasks during an exam. They include:

  • Pelvic exam
  • Breast exam
  • STD screening (if sexually active and symptoms are present)
  • Pap smear (if needed, normally every two years)
  • Mammogram (if needed, once every one to two years, depending on age)
  • Consultation on birth control or HRT, if necessary

During a GYN exam, Nurse Practitioner Adeniran will ask you specific questions about anything she finds. She recommends that you offer as much information as possible during the visit and that you ask questions. Her goal is to not only assess your reproductive health but also to make sure you're healthy on other levels as well.


Why are pap smears important?

Pap smears are used to identify abnormalities in the cells of the cervix. These abnormalities can be caused by infections, an allergic reaction to condoms or contraceptives, or alterations within the cells that are of a precancerous nature.

Nurse Practitioner Adeniran performs pap smears as a part of an annual gynecological exam as they are required. By including pap smears as part of your exam, she can identify these abnormalities while they're in the earliest stages. If they are the result of an infection, she can immediately offer treatment. If the abnormalities indicate the possibility of cancer, she can take the steps provide whatever surgical procedures or treatments necessary to treat the threat of cancer.

Aside from oral contraceptives, what other birth control options are available?
Oral contraceptives are effective but require constant maintenance. If you are looking for more convenient methods of birth control, you have several options to choose from that are just as effective as oral contraceptives. They include:

  • Depo-Provera injections
  • Subdermal implants

 

Nurse Practitioner Adeniran can discuss which option would work best for you, depending on whether you want to have more children and how long you expect the birth control to last. After she informs you of all your options, you'll be able to make a decision that best suits your lifestyle.
