Be pro-active: schedule a routine pelvic exam

The best cure, as they say, is prevention. Pap smears are an integral part of identifying changes in the uterus. This is even more important to be aware of in women who have close female relatives with a history of breast or uterine cancer. Identified early enough, there is a high cure rate.

A pelvic exam has many benefits. Visual examination can tell the clinician if there is a discharge you may not have noticed. They are a common sign of a vaginal infection: also easily remedied with prompt action. Women should have routine examinations to establish uterine health, including tumors, fibroids, genital warts, and other previously undetected irregularities.

While every woman has some normal vaginal discharge, infections generally produce discharge that smells foul and/or is discolored. They are commonly caused by yeast but can be the result of other fungus, bacteria, or pelvic inflammatory disease. The diagnosis more often than not requires a prescription, only available from a clinician. It is important to follow the medication instructions exactly as written for the full course: whether you think it has resolved the problem or not. Failure to complete the entire regiment can result in return of the infection, which may not respond to the medication and prolong treatment.

What are Pap Smears?

The test is done in a laboratory on the cell samples that are taken by scraping the cervix. The sample is examined for abnormal cell changes. It is recommended that they begin at age 21, every two years. Current recommendations call for the test every three years, once the patient reaches 30 years of age if previous tests were normal.
