What is a Digital Video Colposcope?

A video colposcopy is a test where you OBGYN uses a specifically magnifying glass and light, a video colposcope, to look directly at the vagina and cervix. This enables the doctor to see cellular changes which perhaps be causing the office hysteroscopy test to come back abnormal.

Most of tests are caused by important infections, such as HPV infection, or other types of infection like bacteria, fungi, or protozoa. Abnormal pap test can also be the result of natural cervical cell changes related to menopause. In some of cases, untreated cervical cell changes that cause abnormal tests may progress to cancerous changes. The digital video colposcope will be helpful to determine if you require treatment and if so what kind of remedy will be most affective.

How is it done?

You will be told by the doctor or nurse that for the some days before the exam to avoid vaginal intercourse. This is because seamen which stay in the body for up to 72 hours can interfere with the physician's capability to visualize the cervical cells.

In some cases the physician will look through the video colposcope and see that there is really no issue. This means that the oddity on the pap smear was not grave but they may recommend that you have your pap smears at more frequent intervals like every 6 months rather then 12 months. This will be determined by you physician based on what is seen and your medical history.

However, if visible abnormalities look valued then your physician may take small tissue samples directly from the abnormal areas they see. If a specimen is needed from inside the cervical opening then an endocervical curette will be used to take a specimen of tissue from this area.
