No

Pain
Severe pelvic pain after an exam is not normal. Call the doctor who performed the pelvic and discuss with them. They may want to see you back and repeat the exam to find out what is going on. Best wishes and hope this clears up soon.

Why do my pelvic exams hurt so much? I am a 19 year old female, sexually active but safe, and on the nuvaring. I was diagnosed with PID about two months ago and was treated, but once symptoms started to show again I scheduled another appointment. I had ne

Unfortunately,

Unfortunately, gynecological exams aren't necessarily very comfortable for anyone! That being said, PID can make your cervix and uterus extra sensitive thus making the exam extremely painful. Actually, one of the symptoms of PID is a very painful exam - so don't think that every exam will feel like that! This should resolve once the infection is treated. One of the other most common reasons for pain with exam is that your muscles around the opening of your vagina might be very tense. Since your first experience with an exam was during PID, you may be unconsciously tensing your muscles from the memory of how bad it hurt before. By practicing relaxation techniques such as breathing deeply or trying to relax your legs in the stirrups during the exam may help with the discomfort. Also, discuss this with your doctor. You are not the first, nor the last woman to have this exact problem. Your doctor may have other helpful suggestions to make your exams more comfortable.

A pelvic exam is recommended for females, what about for males?

Good question

Pelvis
Men do not much pelvic content as their organs of reproduction are external. The prostate gland, which only males have, is behind the lining of the pelvis, and can and should be examined rectally in men.

Does a woman who had a hysterectomy, need a pelvic exam and pap test?

Yes

Hysterectomy
All women need yearly pelvic exams to monitor for problems that arent necessarily related to pap smears. Pap smears are no longer needed if the hysterectomy was performed for benign indications and there is no prior history of moderate or severe precancerous changes.

Does planned parenthood require a pelvic exam woman take before giving her birth control?

Call them and ask

Pelvic_exam
Keep in mind, they are also people who do abortions all day long - so my advice is always to stay away from them. But if you must, just call and ask them that question over the phone.

I am a 70 year old healthy woman and how often should I have pelvic exams?

Normal PAPs?

Cancer
If your last 3 PAP smears have been normal, you don't have a new sexual partner & no history of "female" cancer, then you don't need to get PAP smears after age 65-70 (depends which guideline you pick). You should still see your doc for your annual physical though.
