Pelvic Examinations and GYN Screening


  • Dr. Morelezo Nikan


This article acknowledged that the evaluation of most of the conditions affecting women’s health continues to be practiced via pelvic examination. It was also documented that the physical examinations employ the pelvic examination approach but the significance of screening pelvic examinations on disease mortality and morbidity in situations involving asymptomatic women remains unclear. As such, the study’s main aim was to determine the efficacy of employing pelvic examination in screening for gynecologic conditions (other than Chlamydia, gonorrhea, and cervical cancer) in asymptomatic, non-pregnant adult women. The specific objective was to review the evidence regarding potential harms, benefits, and the accuracy of using pelvic examination as a method of screening for gynecologic conditions in the selected research population. Regarding the methodology, the study employed a systematic review approach in evaluating the scholarly evidence regarding potential harms, benefits, and the accuracy of employing screening-pelvic examinations in determining the presence or absence of gynecologic conditions in asymptomatic, non-pregnant adult women. In the findings, the study established that adequate evidence is yet to be presented regarding the efficacy of pelvic examination as a screening technique that could be used in detecting and treating various gynecologic conditions timely; especially among non-pregnant, adult women
