If you’re a woman over the age of 21, you need regular gynecological services. Instead of finding a whole new doctor who doesn’t know you or your health, schedule your GYN services with Dr. Veita Bland, MD, at Bland Clinic, P.A. in Greensboro, North Carolina. Bland Clinic provides all the health services you need, including Pap tests and breast exams. To schedule your GYN services, simply call the office or use the online booking tool.
Gynecology services include testing and procedures that monitor a woman’s reproductive health. They can include:
If you’ve never experienced trouble with your reproductive health, you should start receiving GYN services around age 21 or when you become sexually active. Although everyone’s needs are different, most healthy women only need these services once a year.
During your first GYN appointment, a team member at Bland Clinic takes your weight and blood pressure then shows you to a private room where they offer you a medical gown and blanket. You’re asked to remove all your clothing and they leave you alone to change.
Once the doctor’s ready, they knock on the door to let you know they’re entering the room. They often start with a pelvic exam, asking you to lay back on the exam table and put your feet into the stirrups at the bottom. This position allows your doctor to examine the outside of your reproductive organs and anal area, looking for any abnormalities.
Your doctor then inserts a device called a speculum to open your vaginal lips and looks inside. They examine around your cervix and the opening to your uterus. If you need a Pap test, they use a small brush to remove a few cells that will be sent away for testing.
The doctor removes the speculum and performs a palpitation exam, where they place two fingers into your vagina and press up while pressing down on your abdomen. This gives the doctor the ability to feel your reproductive organs.
Your doctor then examines your breasts, feeling for abnormal growths. The doctor may also counsel you on safe sex, sexually transmitted diseases, and contraception.
When you schedule your GYN services with your family doctor, you have a doctor that already knows you and your health issues. What’s more, if you’re ever having problems, you can discuss your GYN issues with Dr. Bland without having to have a separate appointment.
