Pre-conception and Gynaecological Examination
Tumor and Genetic Testing
Many gynaecological diseases e.g. cervical cancer and vaginitis have subtle symptoms and have to be diagnosed by regular physical examinations. Pap Smear is the most effective screening method for cervical cancer and the efficient way to detect cervical abnormalities in women who have sexual experience.
Vaginal infection is a common gynaecological issue which can affect women of all ages. It is often due to candida and trichomonas, but can be caused by other bacteria as well. Women are also more likely to suffer from vaginitis after menstruation when their female hormone levels drop. Women are reminded to have regular gynaecological examination e.g. Trichomonas & Monilia (T&M) Smear in the age of 25 for trichomonas infection.

How often should I have a gynaecological examination?
Regular gynaecological check-ups are available from the age of 20. For those who had sexual experience should undergo cervical screening (Pap smear and HPV) to detect abnormalities on cervical tissues. Some gynaecological diseases may have initial symptoms that are not obvious, such as cervical cancer, breast cancer, ovarian cyst or fibroid tumor, and STDs, regular check-ups can help prevent relevant diseases and manage the health of cervical cells.
It is recommended for women aged 30 or above to have a breast sonography to check for breast cysts and tumors, as well as the structure of each layer of the mammary gland, the shape and texture of the masses. Moreover, it is a non-radiographic test that is particularly suitable for women who are expecting, pregnant or breastfeeding. If needed, referrals can be made to schedule a mammography. In addition, pelvic sonography can be used to detect uterus and ovaries abnormalities, such as cysts, uterine fibroids and endometrioma and so forth, which is conducive to early detection of cervical and ovarian cancer. Combined with tumor markers CA15-3 and CA 125, breast and ovarian cancer can be detected in an early stage, noting that the 5-year survival rate for stage I ovarian cancer can reach as high as 90%!
If you are planning to have children, you may have an Anti-Müllerian Hormone test (AMH), which is key indicator of the estimated number of eggs in your ovary. For women aged 40 or above approaching menopause, calcium screening is recommended as they are at higher risk of breast cancer and osteoporosis. Regular gynaecological check-ups can help identify these risks early.
What should middle-aged women pay attention to when choosing for a health check?
In addition to regular gynaecological check-ups and cervical smears, doctors will provide recommendations on cancer screenings, including mammography and sonography, depending on the risk of woman getting breast cancer. Bone densitometry is also recommended for older post-menopausal women or those who are underweight.

The symptoms occur before the menstrual period and the vaginal discharge appears in the form of dried cheese. Early diagnosis and treatment should be sought if the above symptoms occur. The route of treatment may be by oral tablets or vaginal suppositories prescribed by the doctor.
What are the common symptoms of trichomonas?
Trichomoniasis is caused by a single-cell parasite and is mainly transmitted through sexual intercourse. Incubation period takes from 4 to 20 days. About half of the infected women have no symptoms. Some have vaginitis with vaginal itchiness, increased smelly yellowish green vaginal discharge, and difficulty in urinating, painful intercourse or itching around the genital area. Besides prompt treatment, infected persons should be tested for other sexually transmissible diseases. Their sexual partners should also be tested and treated to avoid repeated cross-infection.
