Exam: The cervix is evaluated by your physician. There is two parts to the exam: 1. Bi manual and two speculum. The speculum is a beak shaped instrument placed in your vagina and allows the physician to see the cervix. The exam consists of the physician placing an exam finger on your cervix and then feeling the top of your uterus and ovaries through your abdomen.
