Excerpt
INTRODUCTION Colposcopy of the vagina and cervix is receiving increasing application in the development of vaginal products. The goal of this type of colposcopy is the detection of epithelial changes that may increase the likelihood of HIV or other STD acquisition. In 1995, the World Health Organization published a manual entitled, Manual for the Standardization of Colposcopy for the Evaluation of Vaginally Administered Products. In January 1999, the Contraceptive Research and Development Program (CONRAD) and the International Working Group on Microbicides (IWGM), in association with the Joint United Nations Program on HIVIAIDS (UNAIDS) convened a meeting in Washington, D.C., the goals of which were to: 1) review modifications of the WHO procedure that had been tried by various investigators; 2) review findings in women using and not using vaginal products; 3) consider alternatives to colposcopy; and 4) reach consensus on a revised procedure, terms, analysis, and future research. One result is the revised colposcopy procedure described in this updated manual. The procedure involves proper patient positioning, examination of the external genitalia under magnification, speculum examination of the cervix, fornices, and vaginal walls with the naked eye followed by lavage and speculum examination under magnification, and taking samples, as appropriate, for microscopic examination.'
