In order to prevent serious diseases, such as those of the cervix or the breast, we advise a gynaecological screening investigation at regular intervals.
Investigation of the Cervix and the Breast
Even women with no symptoms should undergo this investigation once a year. Diseases can be identified and treated on time only if this recommendation is followed.
The investigation includes a smear taken from the cervix (the so-called Pap smear) in order to identify cervical cancer early. In this context, it would also be sensible to consider a protective vaccination for the prevention of cervical cancer. The examination includes an exact documentation of a woman’s menstrual cycle, palpation of the breast, and an optional ultrasound investigation of the breast.
Regular and exact monitoring of the menstrual cycle is especially advised if a woman wishes to have children.
You can read more about it on our special page entitled Desire for Children.
Screening at the Gynaecologist’s Office
You should go for an investigation at least once a year. Changes in the uterus and the fallopian tubes can be identified in the transvaginal ultrasound investigation. The latter should be performed at least once a year in order to detect cysts or other changes early.
In case of pain in the lower abdomen, a transvaginal ultrasound investigation is almost always indicated.
