Gynaecological examination: Introduction

The gynaecological examination as a part of health prevention programmes is covered from the public health insurance for all women once a year (as stipulated by the Decree no. 56/1997 Coll. of MZCR). This checkup involves the examination of external genitalia, and vaginal examination including the colposcopy and cervical smear. Uterus and ovaries are then examined by bimanual palpation. Transvaginal ultrasound examination is optional.

Breast palpation by a gynaecologist is considered by many doctors to be a rather obsolete method. Instead, all women should be familiar with breast self-examination. Women aged 45-69 are eligible for free breast cancer screening test in accredited screening centres every two years. You can find more information on breast cancer screening in the Czech Republic on the website www.mamo.cz.
