PAST HISTORY

 

Past history includes information about any gynecologic disease and/or treatment that the patient has had, including the diagnosis, the medical and/or surgical treatment, and the results. 

Questions about previous gynecologic surgery should include the name of the procedure; indica-tion; when, where, and by whom the surgery was per-formed; and the results. Operative notes may contain useful information, for example, regarding pelvic adhe-sions, and should be obtained, if possible. The patient should be asked specifically about a history of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), such as gonorrhea, herpes, chlamydia, genital warts (condylomata), hepatitis, ac-quired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), herpes, and syphilis. To the extent possible, the patient’s immunization his-tory should be documented.
