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.
