Screening & Treatment
Sexually Transmitted Infections
At NJ Gynecology, we can screen and treat for a number of common STIs in the office, but some, including HIV and hepatitis, require a blood test. Your provider at NJGG will talk with you about your lifestyle to determine what testing you need.
If you have a positive test for any STI, we can treat you and your partner.

Cervical Cancer Screening
The Pap test also called a Pap smear, checks for changes in the cells of your cervix. The Pap test can tell if you have an infection, abnormal (unhealthy) cervical cells, or cervical cancer.
Most women are tested for HPV (human papillomavirus) at the same time that they receive a Pap smear at a routine check up. HPV testing looks specifically for any indication that you have a type of HPV that can lead to cervical cancer.

Colposcopy is an examination of the cervix and vagina with a low power microscope called a colposcope. It is used to aid in the diagnosis of cervical disease after abnormal Pap smear results or when you cervix looks abnormal after an examination.

Cervical LEEP (Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure) is a procedure used to treat cervical dysplasia. Dysplasia is a precancerous change in the cells of the cervix. A LEEP removes the abnormal area of dysplasia from the cervix.

D&C with Hysteroscopy
During a D&C with hysteroscopy, a D&C is performed and then your provider will use a hysteroscope (a slim, viewing instrument) to look inside the uterus.
