Gynecological health with Jujulagygy

La santé gynécologique avec Jujulagygy

The subjects surrounding gynecological health are no longer as taboo as they once were, with increasing focus on topics such as menstruation, sexuality and menopause. However, certain taboos persist in many families. In this podcast, we discuss with @Jujulagygy, frequently asked questions about gynecological health, from the first consultation to knowledge of female anatomy, with an emphasis on practical advice.

When is the first gynaecological consultation?

The first gynecological consultation can be carried out as soon as you have any questions, requests or symptoms. Although regular check-ups generally begin around the age of 25, it's crucial to consult as soon as the need arises. You can bring someone with you to the consultation if it helps you feel more at ease.

Internal examinations: compulsory or not?

An internal examination such as a finger, speculum or endovaginal probe is not systematically required, but may be necessary in the event of specific symptoms (such as unusual bleeding, for example). These allow the internal organs to be explored, providing the patient with the answers she needs.

Why does the social security system encourage smear tests?

Pap smears are essential for the early detection of cervical cancers, often linked to the HPV virus. Current recommendations suggest a first smear at age 25, followed by regular examinations. This helps to detect precancerous cells and prevent cervical cancer.

What advice would you give young women about their anatomy, and why is this important?

Knowledge of the external (vulva, clitoris) and internal (vagina, uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries) genitalia is essential to understanding and managing gynecological health.

Young women should take the time to get to know their anatomy by looking in the mirror and exploring their own bodies. Understanding oneself is the key to taking better care of one's health.

How do I choose my gynecologist?

Trust is essential when choosing a healthcare professional. Word-of-mouth recommendations can be an effective way of finding a suitable practitioner. For basic questions, a trained gynecologist, midwife or general practitioner can be consulted.

The difference between gynaecologist and midwife

Recently, midwives have been given the right to do many more things outside of pregnancy. They are now authorized to carry out gynecological procedures and offer follow-up care focused on physiology, screening and support.

In conclusion, it's essential to take responsibility for your own health. Understanding the explanations of health professionals, asking questions, requesting copies of examinations and adopting a healthy lifestyle are simple but crucial steps towards fulfilling your health.
