Gynecology Q & A

What is gynecology?

Gynecology is a medical specialty that focuses on the health of a woman’s reproductive system, from adolescence through adulthood to menopause and beyond.

  • Pelvic pain
  • Abnormal bleeding

What is involved in a well-woman exam?

A well-woman exam is an essential part of preventive health care that allows your provider to monitor your reproductive health, address any new symptoms or concerns you may have, and follow up on any existing gynecologic conditions. 

Your well-woman exam includes a full body exam, pelvic exam and a breast exam, as well as any health screenings or additional diagnostics you may need. Depending on your age and other individual factors, your well-woman appointment may include:

  • Pap test
  • STD tests
  • Cancer screenings
  • Genetic screening
  • Blood and/or urine tests
  • Gardasil® 9 vaccine for HPV
  • Flu vaccine
  • Pelvic ultrasound
  • Referral for mammogram and colonoscopy

Dr. Bardawil recommends that all women have a well-woman visit every year. 

He may recommend that you have more frequent exams and follow-ups if you have a condition that requires ongoing monitoring.

What happens if I have an abnormal Pap test?

A Pap test, or a Pap smear, is a screening that can detect changes in the cells of your cervix, which may indicate the presence of precancerous cells or cervical cancer. If you do have abnormal Pap test results, Dr. Bardawil will first discuss your results in details and answer all your questions. He may then perform an in-office procedure called a colposcopy to evaluate the cervix.  The procedure is quick and usually painless or minimally uncomfortable and does not require anesthesia or time off. During the procedure, Dr. Bardawil might take small biopsies.
