In brief: Annual exam

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.
