Dr. David I. Kurss answered:

What exams do you take at a gynecologist?

Depends on your age

Birth_control
Typically, no pelvic or breast exam is needed for a teen. Birth control can be safely prescribed. Blood pressure is routinely checked, however. A vaginal infection will, however, require a minimal exam. In the early 20's on up, a breast and pelvic exam, with Pap test is standard. There has recently been some adjustments as to the frequency of Pap tests, as well as starting and stopping ages.

What can I expect from my first gynecologist exam?

Annual exam

Gynecology
Assuming it is a routine exam with no problems, your gynecologist will first meet with you to take your personal history. He will then examine you. This will include a pelvic examination which includes the insertion of a small instument into your vagina so he can see, the taking of a pap smear, and the insertion of his fingers into your vagina to feel for any abnormalities. It is painless.

Most recommend pelvic exams by 21 or within two years of starting sexual activity.Some Peds/Adolescent med/FPs provide these services as part of ongoing care of their patient population. Any sexual activity requires surveylance for STD's. Your primary care provider may refer you for specific consultations when necessary.

No but should

They don't have to do it if you refuse that portion of the exam but it is a normal part of a complete history and physical examination and a sign of a thorough physician.

Dr. Michael K. Yu answered:

Why does the gynecologist have you urinate before starting the exam?

Examination

Bladder
Having a full bladder can make the exam uncomfortable for the patient, as well as make it more difficult to find any abnormalities. Also, the urinalysis can be useful in diagnosing other potential problems.

Pain when gynecologist moves my womb in pelvic exam. What does this mean?

Pelvic Exam

Gynecology
It is quite common to experience pain and discomfort during a pelvic exam. If this never happened before, it might signify a low grade infection of the adnexal sfructures (broad ligament, Fallopian tubes, ovaries). I would definitely discuss this with your gynecologist.

I have a phobia of gynecologist and pelvic exams. What can I do about this?

Deep breathing

Obstetricians
First please tell your gynecologist about this before the day of your visit. Second - consider deep breathing exercises. Inhale deeply through nose, hold in lungs for five count, and then slowly exhale through an open mouth. Repeat x 12. Some women may need an anxiolytic medication prior a pelvic examination if they spasm too much. take care.
