The procedure is done by passing a thin telescope-like device, called a hysteroscope, that is fitted with a small camera through the neck of your womb (cervix).

The procedure takes around 15 minutes and most woman experience little pain.

    Colposcopy is done when results of cervical cancer screening tests show abnormal changes in the cells of the cervix. Colposcopy provides more information about the abnormal cells.

The procedure takes around 15 minutes and most woman experience little discomfort.

Patient Story

The Importance of Cervical Screening

Patient Story

In 2021, while on a regular gynecology check-up at Sidra Medicine, Fathea Adheir upon the advise of her physician, underwent cervical screening and took a Pap smear. When the test results showed that she had cervical intra-epithelial neoplasia (CIN) indicating abnormal changes of the cells that lined her cervix, time was of the essence for her to address the condition, as Fathea was identified at risk of developing cervical cancer.

“I am forever grateful for the amazing care I received at Sidra Medicine – and that my physician was adamant that I take a Pap smear or I would not have known that I was at risk of getting cervical cancer. The whole process from diagnosis to treatment was done in two weeks. Once the diagnosis was made, the wonderful team at Sidra Medicine worked with me both psychologically and physiologically. They not only treated the abnormal cells but also helped me deal with anxiety through counselling sessions.
I strongly encourage all women to consider getting cervical screenings done. Talk to your healthcare team and don’t delay. The process isn’t as daunting as some people think and can save your life! It truly is better to be safe than sorry.”
