Annual Check up

This is a necessary check on  a lady’s bodily function and especially of the female reproductive system- breast, ovaries, womb and vagina. it is necessary to have these checks to pick up diseases/issues that would be easily be handled from the onset. At Velvet Women and Children Clinic, we seek to help with these annual checks by taking you through a breast examination, pelvic examination, pap smear, ultrasound, urine test, and STI screen. We recommend doing these annual checks at a timed period of the year. e.g On birthdays, or week before e.t.c for easier recall of the appointment.

Pap Smear

This is done commonly to check for cancer of the cervix and/or any changes that may lead to cancer of the cervix. We use a speculum, lubricated to examine the cervix after making sure the client is comfortable and lying down on the examination couch.The lubricated speculum is then slowly inserted into the virginal and then made to visualize the cervix. Once it is seen then the cervical brush is used to pick up a sample from the cervix. This sample is then put on a slide an then sent to our laboratory for review by the pathologist. The result of this is usually 5 days and then this is forwarded to your email address with your consent.

Dr Bosire is a true specialist always keen & meticulous. From the time my wife & I stepped foot at your clinic we were reassured & nothing has ever made us question your judgment. Always on call despite the day or time, very friendly, gives attention to any issue that you are not ok with. He was always on loop each time we visited any hospital & he would talk to that doctor to know the exact meds or diagnosis being given to my wife. I'll always recommend you to anyone who asks me of your service.
