A gynecologist appointment
Based on our gynecologists’ recommendations, every woman should have a gynecological exam once every six months, or at least once per year. The purpose of having one exam per semester is to prevent, detect, and diagnose possible illness. In addition, these exams help to maintain and improve women’s fertility, sexual, and reproductive health. During your visit, you will talk to your doctor, and he will ask you questions about you and your family. Similarly, he will ask you specific and personal questions related to your sexual activity, sexual partners, and menstrual periods. In addition, it is likely that you will have these two exams performed during your gynecologist appointment: a general physical exam and an external genital exam. Accordingly, we recommend that you ask a family member to join you during these two exams (or you can ask a nurse to do so).
What to expect at your first gynecologist appointment
Although we all know that it’s important to take care of our health, our first visit to the gynecologist can be a daunting one. Nevertheless, our first gynecologist appointment is a vital part of growing up and taking care of ourselves. Therefore, if you are a young teenager considering your first visit, or if you are a mother who is providing support for its daughter, here are some helpful tips:
- Your first visit to the gynecologist should usually happen during puberty, when your sexual development begins, or even before.
- When making your appointment, try to schedule it during the middle of your menstrual cycle.
- Think about the questions that you want to ask your gynecologist beforehand.
- On the day of your consultation, avoid using any creams, powders, or perfumes, and wear comfortable clothing.
- Once you arrive at your gynecologist´s office, your doctor will ask you questions regarding your past medical history, previous surgical procedures, and your family´s history.
- In addition, he will ask you questions about your menstrual cycle, if you are sexually active, if you take contraceptives, etc.
- Following these questions, your gynecologist will perform a physical exam and an external genital exam.
- In addition, your doctor may need to check your breast and your pelvic area.
How to prepare for a gynecologist appointment
- First of all, do your research and choose a gynecologist you can trust and feel comfortable with. Once you have selected one, make your appointment.
- If you are a minor, ask your mother or a female relative to go with you to your consultation.
- Keep track of your menstrual cycle. Your gynecologist will ask you about the start and end of your last period, so you should know these dates.
- Schedule your appointment one week after the end of your last menstrual cycle. This is even more important if you are having a pelvic exam, as blood from your menstrual cycle could interfere with your examination and test results.
- Postpone hair removal methods and pelvic grooming until after your appointment. This will help you avoid the inflammation that is sometimes produced by these methods, which could make your pelvic exam more complicated.
- Think about all the questions that you may have, write them down and take them with you to your appointment. This way, you won’t forget to ask your doctor about them.
- Avoid having sex in the two days previous to your appointment. This will help maximize the accuracy of your test results.
- Finally, if you don’t feel comfortable with your gynecologist during your first visit (or during any appointment for that matter), look for another option. Fortunately, there are many good gynecologists in most of Mexico’s cities and towns.

Gynecologists costs in Puerto Vallarta
|Name of service/study||Brief description of Service/study||Cost (Approximate cost range)|
|How much is a gynecologist visit?||The goal of your first visit to the gynecologist is to begin recording your medical history, considering your age and starting from your current health condition. During a gynecological consultation, you will get a general physical exam and an external genital exam. During these exams, your doctor will record your height, weight, and blood pressure.||From $600 to $900.00 MXN|
|Cost of a female hormone test||A female hormone test is a very common test that is used to the FHS levels (follicle-stimulating hormone). FSH is responsible for several important factors in women´s health, such as managing the menstrual cycle and stimulating the production of eggs in the ovaries. In addition, determining FHS levels is also important when a woman suffers from infertility.||From $2,360 to $3,500 MXN|
|Pregnancy ultrasound cost||A pregnancy ultrasound also called a pregnancy sonogram, is a prenatal imaging study that should be performed on most pregnant women. A pregnancy ultrasound uses sound waves to generate pictures of your baby in your uterus. These images help your gynecologist to evaluate and follow your baby´s health and development.||From $1,676 to $ 2,800 MXN|
|4D ultrasound cost||A 4D ultrasound uses sound waves to produce a near “real-time movie” of your baby. A 4D ultrasound will help you see your baby moving inside your uterus. In addition, it will help your gynecologist detect conditions such as skin problems and/or deformities that may be present. Please note that in Puerto Vallarta, some gynecologists offer a combined cost that includes their consultation and your 4D ultrasound.||From $1,600 to $2,400 MXN|
|Mammogram cost||A Mammogram is an X-Ray type of study that provides images of your breast. Gynecologists use mammograms to look for early signs of breast cancer. Mammograms are the best diagnostic method for detecting cancer cells at its earliest stages.||From $1,200 to $ 2,500 MXN|
|Pap smear cost||A pap smear test also called a pap test, is used to detect what may be early signs of cervical cancer. A pap smear test is used to collect cells from your cervix, which is the narrow end of your lower uterus, located at the top of your vagina. In general, our gynecologists in Puerto Vallarta recommend getting a pap test every two years, if you are between ages 18 and 70.||From $750 to $1,200 MXN|
|Colposcopy costs||Gynecologists perform a colposcopy study when they need to study your vulva, vagina, and cervix in detail. To perform this procedure, a gynecologist uses an instrument called a colposcope to examine these parts of your body. Usually, your doctor might recommend a colposcopy after an abnormal pap test result. A colposcopy helps to diagnose precancerous tissue, genital wards and cervicitis (cervix inflammation).||From $750 to $1,500 MXN|
