Procedure Description

Colposcopy

What To Expect

Colposcopy is a painless examination of the cervix and vagina with a colposcope. This exam usually is done between menstrual periods and generally takes less than ten minutes. A woman lies down in the position used to take a Pap Smear and a speculum is inserted into the vagina to give a view of the cervix and vagina. After cleansing, the cervix and vagina are visualized through the colposcope. Biopsies are taken most of the time except during pregnancy.

Preprocedure

You can take Tylenol or Ibuprofen before the procedure is done.

Postprocedure

You need to come in 2 weeks after procedure to discuss results.
