While our pilot study is not large enough to assess sensitivity or specificity of a symptom-based screening approach, we did find that this type of screening was feasible and acceptable at the time of a primary care visit and referred approximately 4% of women for additional diagnostic testing. Symptom-based screening also resulted in minimal additional procedures.
