It is therefore particularly important to us that you really feel comfortable on your first visit to the MVZ – why not take a look at our team first and think about which doctor you would most like to make an appointment with!
We doctors all have one thing in common: It doesn’t matter to us how old you are, what sexual orientation and shape you have, whether you have already had sex and what questions you would like to ask! There are no taboos with us – and of course we are all subject to medical confidentiality, this also applies if you are not yet of legal age!
If you would like to bring your girlfriend, boyfriend or one of your parents, that’s no problem! Please check again briefly beforehand whether there are currently corona-related restrictions regarding accompanying persons in our MVZ.
On your first visit, you can get to know us and our MVZ in peace – this includes, above all, a detailed discussion! We can usually do without an examination on your first visit or only carry it out from the stomach, so you don’t have to undress!
It is best to wear comfortable clothing, e.g. a long t-shirt or a dress, then you won’t feel quite so naked if an examination is necessary or planned! Wash yourself the way you usually wash yourself. It is not necessary for you to shave!
Since we will ask you some questions about your period bleeding, health, surgeries, medication, allergies and previous illnesses, it makes sense that you should give some thought to this. For example, ask your parents if there are any illnesses that are common in your family! You are welcome to download our anamnesis and pill form and fill it out at home!
If you have a vaccination card, bring it with you if possible so that we can check whether you are up to date with all vaccinations.
There is no such thing as a perfect time – it really depends on whether you have questions about your body, sexuality or contraceptive methods. Of course you can also come to us before “the first time”! Be sure to make an appointment with us if any of the following apply:
- missed your period?
- Is it just very irregular?
- Is your period unusually heavy?
- Do you have a lot of pain during your period?
- Do you feel itching in the vaginal area?
- Do you have a strong smelling discharge?
- chest pain?
- Do you need birth control?
- Are you worried about being pregnant?
- Do you think you need the morning-after pill?
NO! Even if an examination is necessary, you never have to undress completely. Either we only examine your breasts and you can leave your pants on, or we examine your private parts and you can keep your t-shirt or dress on.
In principle, we don’t do anything you don’t want and we explain everything we do step by step! A gynecological examination is not painful! After we have discussed everything in peace, you have the opportunity to undress undisturbed in the changing room. The gynecological examination takes place on an examination chair. First, your vulva, i.e. the outer part of the vagina, is carefully examined and examined. Then the vagina is examined from the inside with the help of a speculum and the cervix is examined – a swab can possibly be taken. This is followed by a palpation examination, with one hand lying on your stomach and the other hand palpating your cervix, uterus, ovaries and bladder area with one finger. Finally, an ultrasound examination of the vagina may be carried out!
