Gynecological Exams

We understand that women have unique health care needs, and we know that those needs change over time. This is why Physicians East offers regular gynecological exams at each of our primary care locations. Additionally, we proudly boast two long-respected, full ob/gyn practices in our network of care providers: Greenville OB/GYN and Greenville Women's Clinic. At our primary care locations, you can receive your regular annual gynecological exam, and if necessary, be referred to either of our two ob/gyn practices.

About Your Visit

Women should begin scheduling regular gynecological exams when they turn 18 or become sexually active, whichever comes first. Also, it's important to remember to schedule your appointment when you are between menstrual cycles, not during. An annual exam is recommended, but you should schedule an appointment as soon as possible if you are experiencing any of the following:

  • Severe pain in the abdomen or pelvic area
  • Unusual pain in the vagina
  • Unusual discharge, itching or bumps around the vagina
  • Possible exposure to an STD
  • Severe pain during periods
  • Infrequent or irregular periods
  • Breast discharge, change in breast size or skin color/appearance
  • Pain during intercourse

Annual gynecological exams are an essential first step to well-woman health. Schedule your annual exam with your local Physicians East office today using our secure patient portal. Stay informed, stay healthy.
