What to Expect for Your Annual Gynecology Exams

In addition to checking your height, weight, and blood pressure, your gynecologist will ask you questions about your general health, menstrual period and sexual activities. During your exam, your gynecologist will perform the following exams and tests. If the doctor is male, a female nurse remains in the room during your exam.

Breast Exam

During your breast exam, your doctor will check your breasts for signs of any potential problems, such as a lump. He or she will examine each breast by moving his or her fingers around your breast in a pattern. You may also be shown how to perform monthly self-examinations.

Pelvic Exam

During your pelvic exam, your gynecologist will examine your vagina, cervix and reproductive organs. Once you place your feet against footrests at the end of the examining table and slide forward, your gynecologist will then insert an instrument called a speculum into your vagina to gently spread the walls apart to examine the area. Your gynecologist then places one or two gloved, lubricated fingers into your vagina and the other hand presses on your abdomen from the outside to check the size, position, and shape of your internal pelvic organs. The pelvic exam may feel a bit uncomfortable, but should not hurt.

Pap Smear

A Pap smear checks for abnormal cells in the cervix that could lead to cancer. The gynecologist will insert a small cotton-tipped swab through the vagina into the cervix. Cells are removed from the cervix and sent to a laboratory to be checked for any abnormalities. The Pap smear is painless.

Well Woman Visits

These assessments should include screening, evaluation and counseling, and immunizations based on age and risk factors.
