Before the beginning of a gynecological examination, the gynecologist, like any physician, will record “the medical history”, which should actually be better called “the history of the medical interview”. You will have to simply answer questions, including the traditional: “What are your complaints?”. Some questions can be very intimate (for example, about whether you have sexual activity, from what age, how, etc.) and cause you to be embarrassed, but you must answer them, and absolutely honestly - again, for the good of your health. Sometimes, the gynecologist asks questions that may not be relevant and even be tactless. However, he/she is interested in the conditions of your life, work and sexual relations, and not for curiosity. Such “insignificant” trifles help determine the direction of research, choose methods of diagnosis.
It sometimes includes the most routine procedures - such as measuring blood pressure, determining height and weight, etc. And it is not always carried out, but based on the results; it is also possible to appoint urinalysis. By the way, the urinary bladder in any case should be emptied before the appointment - this is necessary in order not to interfere the physician to properly probe the uterus.
