Had 2-3 outbreaks of HPV in 2001 nothing since; gyno exam confirmed; do I still have HPV and will warts appear again one day?
Went to gyno recently for Papsmear & realized later on that my dr. did not do the usual pelvic exam part. Is this bad that she skipped it this time?
Not bad: If you do not have any symptoms, missing a pelvic examination at the time of PAP smear is not something to be concerned about. You should bring it up with your gyno at the next visit. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Pushing down to see if your ovaries or uterus are tender. They may not do exam, but sched ultrasound. ...Read more
Pain on lower ab by ovaries, no period after taking pill. Do i need to see the gyno again for pelvic exam last time it was when almost 18, 2 yrs ago?
Yes: I believe that you are implying that you were not getting a period, and were not able to 'induce' a period using the pill. I hope that my assumption is correct - if i am, this is called 'secondary amenorrhea' if you previously did get a period. This should prompt a more thorough workup of causes and yes, you should see your doctor. ...Read more
Do i need family doc. For check ups? Only have specialists. What happens during a check-up?Will they re-do a pelvic exam if i had one w/ gyno in feb?
Family doctor: Yes you do need a family physician to correlate all the data relating to your health. You may see fewer specialists with fewer unnecessary tests done. I doubt your physician (family) would find it necessary to redo recent exams unless there was a concern. ...Read more
