Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome back.
The word encounter here just means 'during' i.e. during gynecological examination. Definitely it does not mean anything else.

Look at their English language use for reporting. The strange way of reporting I have seen in my thirty years of experience!

Best wishes.
