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.

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.

When you go to the gynecologist do they have to do the breast exam?

No but should

Open-uri20120819-6889-1wy2ozg
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.

Could a gynecologist give you a full "down there" exam if you are a virgin?

No exam needed

In a woman without symptoms, having normal periods, and has had no potential exposure to STD's or to the HPV virus, there is no need to have a vaginal examination.
