Your First Gyn Exam




Before the Pelvic Exam


Custom Search

During the exam, it is likely that a nurse will also be in the room to assist the doctor. The doctor will first examine your breasts to check for any abnormalities. She may also conduct a physical exam of the rest of your body. After this is done, the doctor will ask you to get into the stirrups. The best way to do this is for you to put your feet in the stirrups one at a time, then slide your bottom down to the end of the table (towards the doctor). You should then slowly lie back. You can put your gown down between your legs to cover yourself up until the doctor is ready, at which point you will let your knees open.
