What happens in a typical gynecologist appointment?

Exam. Most gynecologists will take a history and then conduct a physical exam. As far as the gynecologic portion of the exam is concerned, they will inspect your vulva, look at your vagina with a speculum, look at the cervix with a speculum, palpate your uterus with two fingers in the vagina and a hand on top of your abdomen and then palpate your ovaries in a similar manner.
