In brief: Mostly history

The exam you have will depend on whether you are sexually active.
If you are, then you will have a speculum exam and a test called a Pap smear to look at the cells of your cervix. The doctor will also examine your uterus and ovaries using his fingers . It is a good time to talk about birth control and protection from disease. It is also a good time to ask about the HPL vaccine. BP check/blood work
