Personal interview with your gynecologist

The gynecological examination begins with a personal interview with your gynecologist, who, through a series of questions, will complete your medical history and will be able to find out both your personal circumstances and your current needs, depending on the stage of life in which you find yourself.

Gynecological examination

After the personal interview or clinical questioning, your gynecologist will carry out a physical examination, which consists of an examination of the abdomen, external genitalia, vagina and cervix, and a breast examination.

Examination to rule out Human Papilloma Virus infection

The Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is a sexually transmitted infection that is widespread among the population and can cause anything from lesions on the genital mucosa to precancerous lesions or different types of cancer.

Most people can have the virus and have no symptoms, eliminate the virus with their defenses and not develop cancer, but in 15% of infected women the virus persists for many years and can cause cell changes that lead to cancer. the development of cancer.

For this reason, it is important that women in whom the virus persists receive greater attention and more exhaustive control, so that it is possible to prevent the development of cancer precursor lesions.

At Women's CD, if our patients request it, we administer the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine.

Breast and armpit examination

The breast examination does not cause pain or discomfort. To rule out any pathology, your gynecologist will check if there is any alteration in the skin, the possible presence of lumps in the breasts or armpits, or discharge from the nipples.

If considered necessary to rule out or confirm a diagnosis, after the breast examination your gynecologist may request additional tests, such as a mammogram.

Gynecological ultrasound

Gynecological ultrasound is a quick, innocuous and painless diagnostic test that is normally performed transvaginally and allows the internal organs of the pelvis to be examined by ultrasound, with the aim of detecting or ruling out possible anomalies or pathologies.


Cytology, also called pap smear, is a quick, simple and painless test (although it can be annoying) that consists of taking a sample of cells from the vagina and the cervix  for further analysis.

Cellular analysis makes it possible to detect precursor lesions of cervical cancer and possible infections caused by bacteria, fungi or viruses, such as the human papillomavirus (HPV), one of the most widespread diseases among the population.

Depending on the circumstances, it is recommended to perform the test for the first time from the moment they begin to have sexual intercourse and repeat the test, if recommended by your gynecologist, every 2 or 3 years.


The most recent evidence-based guidelines from experts in the field of breast cancer detection and diagnosis recommend that all women, starting at age 40, have an annual mammogram.

Mammography is a safe and rapid diagnostic test (around 20 minutes) that allows tumors to be detected (among other pathologies) before they have invaded breast tissue, distant organs or lymph nodes.

Thanks to mammography you can identify breast cancer in its earliest stage, up to 2 years before it becomes palpable, and thus ensure an early diagnosis that allows the most appropriate treatment to be initiated.


Densitometry is a diagnostic test that accurately determines the mass or bone density of the bones, applicable both for the early diagnosis of osteoporosis and for the control of its evolution.

Densitometry, a test that does not cause any pain, is recommended to start doing it at the time when menopause occurs.

If the woman does not present risk factors, the most important thing is to carry out control in the first two years without estrogen, that is, the first two years after the date of the last period.
