What To Expect
During the first part of the exam, a nurse checks your height, weight and blood pressure. The doctor will then ask you questions about your general health to better understand your medical history. During your breast exam, the doctor will examine your breasts for growth and signs of any potential problems, such as a lump. She may also show you how to perform monthly self-examinations, if you don’t already know how to do this. During your pelvic exam, the doctor examines your vagina and cervix and checks the health of your reproductive organs as well as performs a Pap test. The Pap test, a small cotton-tipped swab inserted into the cervix, is used to check for abnormal cells in the cervix that could lead to cancer. The Pap test is completely painless.
