Objectives: Our aim in the present study was to evaluate the results of the routine coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) test performed preoperatively for gynecological and obstetric operations in asymptomatic patients and to question whether this test is necessary as a preoperative routine test after the pandemic declaration of the World Health Organization (WHO).

Materials and Methods: In the present study, the COVID-19 test results of all patients prepared for the gynecologic or obstetric operations between June 2020 and December 2020 were recorded.

Results: A total of 999 female patients were evaluated in this study. The mean age of the study group was 39.7±11.4 years. The average body mass index (BMI) was found to be 27.0 ± 3.9. In this study, 332 patients were pregnant (33.2%) and 251 patients (25.1%) were in the menopausal period. The COVID-19 test was found to be positive in 12 of 999 patients we performed preoperative screening (1.2%).

Conclusions: According to the results of this study, 1 positivity was found in 83 patients in the preoperative screening test. Although this rate is not high enough to suggest continuing screening, it seems beneficial to continue screening for COVID-19 to identify asymptomatic patients and reduce contagiousness.
