    00:01 In female reproductive pathology here, we’ll take a look at important cervical disorders.

    00:08 The normal cervix, think about where you are.

    00:12 You’ve established a rapport with your patient.

    00:15 She feels comfortable with you handling a pelvic exam and you obviously are not going to be alone Upon insertion of a speculum, warm it up first, please.

    00:27 You don’t just insert a cold tool into the vagina.

    00:32 And now at this point, you’re looking deep into the vagina and at the cervix.

    00:40 Now, if you don’t find the cervix, totally different pathology.

    00:45 But here, a normal cervix.

    00:47 Notice the fleshy consistency of the cervix.

    00:52 The cervix here, the type of cells that this is lined by, It would be what kind? Good.

    00:58 Squamous cells, because this is facing the outside.

    01:03 So you’re looking at this, you’re looking at the exocervix.

    01:07 You’re looking at the cervical os, which is then leading into the cervix, and then further into the uterus.

    01:16 At any point in time, if this surface of the cervix appear as being reddened or fiery red, you might be thinking about an infection, such as candida.

    01:27 Or from the os itself, you find oozing of blood coming out in a post-menopausal woman, that is extremely concerning because now you’re worried about endometrial cancer in a developed country.

    01:41 A lot of stuff that you can just take out by looking at a normal cervix.

    01:46 Your foundation first begins here.
