R87.9: Abnormal findings in specimens from female genital organs Unspecified abnormal finding

Fluid from your female genitals was examined. Changes have been detected in your sample.

The internal female genital organs include the uterus, the fallopian tubes and ovaries. The vagina is also one of the internal genital organs and goes from the uterus to the outside of the body. The external female genital organs include the labia, the clitoris and the skin around the vagina. Fluid from your uterus or vagina may have been examined, for example.

The sample of the examined fluid normally only contains a certain amount of different substances. These substances include certain cells or proteins, for example.

If the amount of substances in the sample has changed, this can sometimes be an indication of disease. The results can also depend on when the sample is taken or how the sample is stored until it is examined, for example.
