The gynecologists at The Institute for Gynecologic Care offer women diagnostic pelvic exams as part of an overall comprehensive care plan for gynecologic conditions and disorders.
A pelvic exam is a physical examination of the female reproductive organs. Pelvic exams are typically part of a routine gynecologic check-up and evaluation for adults and in some cases, adolescents. Pelvic exams are also typically performed for patients who are pregnant or experiencing pain or abnormal symptoms.
A pelvic exam generally involves a visual inspection and manual examination of the vulva, uterus, cervix, fallopian tubes, ovaries, bladder and rectum for growths or abnormalities.
A pelvic exam is typically recommended as part of an overall health screening for women. Women who are pregnant or who are experiencing symptoms such as chronic pelvic pain may also require a pelvic exam. The gynecologists at The Institute for Gynecologic Care will help determine if a pelvic exam is a suitable diagnostic tool for your condition.
