As with other doctors the initial meeting is usually structured along similar lines: taking a history, examining the patient and then performing some investigations (tests). In taking a history the specialist enquires about what has happened leading up to the presentation. Examination will follow and for gynaecologists will generally include a vaginal examination often with use of a speculum so the cervix can be visualised. Finally specific tests are arranged. These may be blood tests, urine tests, pap smears, ultrasounds or one of many other things. Once the results are back the information gathered can be analysed and a diagnosis decided upon. The best treatment can then be tailored to the patient’s requirements.
Gynecology – American spelling for Gynaecology.
