You will be required to attend potentially two medical screenings. Should you pass your first screening, you will be invited to a second screening, where you will be required to have a vaginal ultrasound, a cervical smear, and a breast and genital examination. These examinations will be conducted by a gynecology specialist. Please read the following information carefully.
During the screening for this study, you will be required to visit a gynecology specialist doctor who will do a gynecological examination followed by a cervical smear test and a transvaginal scan.
The gynecological examination consists of examination of your breasts and your genital area externally and internally. This will include examination of the vulva, vagina and cervix. For this examination, the doctor will have to insert a metal speculum into your vagina, as if you were having a smear . Your vulva, vagina and cervix will be examined carefully. The speculum is then removed and an internal pelvic examination is performed. This allows the doctor to gauge the size, shape and consistency of your womb, and also assess if there is any tenderness in your pelvis.
During the physical examination, the doctor will also do a cervical smear test. Cervical screening is not a test for cancer; it is a test to check the health of the cells of the cervix. The cervical screening test usually takes around five minutes to carry out. An instrument called a speculum will be gently inserted into your vagina to hold the walls of your vagina open so that your cervix is visible. A small brush-like instrument will be used to take some cells from the surface of your cervix.
The gynecological examination and cervical smear test is followed by a vaginal ultrasound scan.
A vaginal ultrasound is performed by gently inserting a scan probe into your vagina, which you may find slightly uncomfortable. It takes about 10 minutes. It uses high frequency sound waves to create an image of the inside of your vagina, womb and ovaries. This helps us visualise your womb and ovaries clearly in order to assess the health of your womb and ovaries.
All the tests described above will enable us to assess your gynaecological health and assess the eligibility for your participation in the clinical trial.
