Having your first pelvic exam can make you nervous.
Its important that you chose a doctor that you're comfortable with.
You need to be able to ask questions and get answers that you can
understand. Its more important that your doctor understands you
and is patient with you rather than be the same sex as you. Many
people have had bad experiences their first time because they weren't
careful in choosing their doctor. Please read some of the
experiences that girls have had and then provide your own. Be
honest and take a few minutes to do it. It may help some other girl
who was just as nervous as you were!

I didn't want to be there but I felt like I
had to go. The doctor told me to put my legs in the stirrups and I did. I
didnít expect to be spread this much. She told me to scoot down and I did, then
she put her gloved fingers on my private area.
She spread my inner lips and felt around.
She informed me she was checking for masses. It didn't hurt but I felt very
exposed. Then she felt around my vaginal opening. She said everything looked
ok and that she needed to look inside. She used a metal instrument. It was
cold but that didn't bother me unlike my friend said it would. It went in deep
but as she pushed it slowly it didn't hurt. Opening it however gave me a
strange feeling. It wasn't bad, but I felt really open. She looked inside
through some kind of binoculars and then she took it out without taking a smear
sample. She then inserted two fingers in me and pressed down on my lower belly
quite hard. She had her fingers in me longer than the metal instrument. She
moved her fingers around, told me she was examining my cervix.
When she finally took her fingers out I
thought that was it but she wanted to do a rectal exam too. That was a bit
uncomfortable but it made me excited too. I didn't like that so I was glad it
didn't last long. I felt very vulnerable and embarrassed.

After the nurse took my information and did some tests (BP/Temp/etc.) I got
undressed and waited. After the dr. came in he asked me why I was there. I
explained I needed birth control. We talked about what I should have, and then
he examined me. He felt my breasts, looked at and felt between my legs, put in a
speculum and did a test, put his finger into my vagina and felt my abdomen, and
then he had me lean over the table and he put his finger in my anus and felt
around. After that he gave me a prescription for birth control pills and I left.

I find it violating to this day. I will never again subject myself to such
degrading test. These doctors are harassing us. Everything is money based and I
find that for the most part, things I do not want to tell them are simply none
of their business. This is a violation of rights and once I say no as they
continue to emotionally abuse me and harass me, it becomes battery if they
proceed against my will. I will fight to my dying day for the right to choose
and the right to refuse treatment and testing. I will show that previous court
cases have been won in the patient's behalf, including 'the right to be let
alone". All testing, if I am not ill, I find to be irrelevant, a violation of
both my religious beliefs and my body itself, including bodily injury in such
things as blood test that are not needed and during times I am not ill. The
entire thing is victimizing and sad, knowing we are left with the choice to get
pregnant or be sexually assaulted in a legal aspect or left to do never ending
searches on the internet for out of the country pharmacies that will ship birth
control. I am now 48 and have not and WILL NOT ever allow myself to be sexually
assaulted or allow another person to commit battery against me again when I am
I felt raped, violated, sexually assaulted and that was when I was 21. I am now
48 and have never overcome the emotional trauma I experienced. I felt controlled
and still do as I watch the government make demands against our bodies against
our will in the name of money. As I watch the government each day, invade and
try to violate our rights, including our right to bear arms, our right to choose
and our right to a quality life as doctors continue to allow the DEA to add to
decreased quality of life, leaving people in pain when medication is out there
and available and causing stress and anxiety for patients for profit rewards.
Between doctors protecting their license and fighting to stay alive in their
business with regard to money, due to this horrible Obama care, their morals
have been sacrificed and the patients are the suffering the consequences. Yes, I
do know what I am talking about. With a family full of attorneys and me myself,
a licensed professional in the medical field, along with me being a victim of
crime, I am fully aware of the true reasons underlying with such testings. Money
is the drive in today's world, not caring as we all know few doctors really even
remember patientís names or what they look like.

I'm 20 and a virgin. My first pelvic exam was done by my doctor, he is also a
gynecologist. He suggested I get this exam because I have 5 week long menstrual
cycles with spotting between the 3-4 day breaks after my period. He said if my
menstrual cycles were normal I wouldn't need an exam until I have sex.
went to my first pelvic exam by myself. The nurses did the usual checkup
procedures and gave me a blanket and gown. I told her this was my first exam and
I'm still a virgin. She explained the procedure, "he does this all the time (my
doctor) don't be nervous." I wasn't nervous because I knew what to expect. I was
told it doesn't hurt, only if you tense up. She told me the doctor will be in
shortly (10min) then left. I used this time to meditate to relax myself.
came in and asked me the usual questions; had sex, last period, have kids,
pregnant? A different nurse came and prepped for the exam. I heard the nurse
say the speculum (plastic) theyíre using is small. My doctor bragged about his
big hands and fingers. THIS MATTERS if you have never inserted anything into
your vagina before. My doctor did the external exam this doesn't hurt. When he
examined my button (clitoris) it felt like he was pressing down on it (he
wasn't). I saw him insert the speculum but I didn't really feel it go in, just
when it's opened up (doesn't hurt). The Pap smear is felt even when you are
relaxed; to my surprised. You can feel the brush and the q tips used during the
smear. The swabs of the q tip leave a dry feeling down there. The brush used to
collect the cells kind of stings due to the rotating the doctors doing. I
couldn't help but to occasionally look at my doctor, his face expression was
bored and blank even when he looked at me. I thought this was funny and kept
looking at the armlet I was wearing.
The last part of my exam was the bi-manual (manual examination of the vagina)
the nurse lubricated his fingers. My doctor used 1 finger at first to examine,
and then he used 2 fingers because he couldn't reach my cervix. This part of the
exam doesn't hurt until the doctor starts trying to feel the cervix. I didn't
cry but I was cringing and unconsciously moving my pelvis away from his hand. I
forgot about breathing and the nurse told me to me relax and breathe. I couldn't
it hurt. Prior to this last part of the exam I asked if I had a hymen he said
"No... There's evidence and tissue from your torn hymen." My doctor told me the
pain I'm feeling as he's reaching for my cervix is the result of the rest of the
hymen stretching and ripping. During this part of the exam my doctor was
standing and making funny faces. So it was funny and painful; well the cervix
reaching was painful and rough (this contributed to me almost passing out after
the exam). As a result of tensing up the back of my thigh muscles were sore for
After the exam I felt light headed and like I was going to pass out. Probably
because that was the first time I had someoneís fingers in my vagina. My doctor
said I'm so glad youíre not a virgin I was nervous. He assumes an intact hymen
means youíre a virgin. There are various ways a hymen can be torn without sex
and masturbation. I haven't done any of that. I explain this to my doctor and he
decided to test for STDs even though I'm still a virgin. I'm considering
changing my doctor.

went into the room with my mum and my vitals were taken and my reflexes were
tested. My mum then helped me answer questions on my medical history. She was
asked to leave while I answered questions about my (non-existing) sex life and
other serious questions. I was then left alone to undress and the doctor knocked
on the door to see if I was ready. I requested for my mum to not be in the room
because I felt that would make it more awkward. The doctor began my exam and
explained step by step what he was going to do. He was very gentle and made

I was a runaway who was caught about twenty miles from home on a Friday night. I
was placed in juvenile detention for the weekend. I had been strip-searched and
made to shower when I came in on Friday night. I was not allowed to go to
breakfast the next morning, but instead was taken to the infirmary for my
entrance physical. Of course, since this was a girl's facility, the exam table
had stirrups extended. A guard stayed with me and the nurse told me that I was
having a complete physical today and I had to strip.
The doctor walked in and asked the nurse why I wasn't in the stirrups yet. He
said that he had three more girls to examine this morning. He started to wash
his hands and the guard told me to strip naked. I did as I was told and the
nurse helped me climb on the table and she put my legs in the leg crutches and
secured me with Velcro. The doctor checked my eyes, ears, nose throat and heart.
He did a very rough breast exam. Then he pressed on my abdomen. He asked me when
I pooped last and when I last had my period. He asked me when my first period
was and when my pubic hair had started to grow. He asked me about sex, drugs,
and alcohol. He sat down between my open legs and pulled my butt to the edge of
About that time, the door opens and the second girl, escorted by a male guard
comes in. The doctor says for them to get her undressed. My guard came to my
head and shoulders and pinned my arms above my head. The doctor roughly pulled
at my pubes and opened my outer lips. I started to cry. He told me not to be a
baby. All the girls who come in here get this exam. He said he had to make sure
I was healthy and that I hadn't been sexually assaulted. Without any warning, he
pushed his index finger all the way inside me. He told the nurse which speculum
to use and he said to put a lot of lube on the blades or he would never get it
in. He took the speculum and it took six tries to get it all the way in and
opened. I thought he had ripped me apart. He looked around inside me with a
penlight and then he removed the speculum. He then did a two finger bimanual
exam and followed that with a recto-vaginal exam.
He finished my time in the stirrups by ramming his middle finger way up my butt
and twisting it around. I was then allowed to get out of the stirrups and was
made to get on my elbows and knees and he pushed his middle finger back up in
me. He had the nurse get him a rectal speculum and he pushed that up my butt.
When he took the speculum out, he told the nurse that I was constipated. The
nurse put me back in the stirrups and the doctor inserted two huge suppositories
up my butt. He told the nurse to give me a gown and to take me to the infirmary
treatment room. He said after I pooped, I was to receive two high colon enemas
with a colon tube. Then I could go back to my cell. I watched as the next girl,
who was younger than me (12) was placed on the table. I had never seen another
girl spread open that way.
To add insult to injury, my parents picked me up on Monday morning after my
court hearing. Much to my surprise I wasn't taken back to school, but instead to
my pediatrician's office. There a complete gynecological and rectal examination
was performed with me nude and my mom and stepdad watching every part.
June 25, 2013
I expected a pap smear and a pelvic exam only...did not expect to lay on a table
with in a frogleg supine position with a light over my private parts having an
old man spread open my labia, touch my clitoris, and spread my urethral opening.
I also did not expect this old man to take my temperature rectally and spread my
bottom apart...he also took some sort of a stool sample with a long
q-tip...another male entered the room during this part of the exam and then he
was the one spreading my bottom apart while the old man doctor used a light and
metal object that was placed inside of my rectum. It was awful!
mom had initiated conversation about going on birth control because I had a very
serious boyfriend, even though I was not sexually active. We had a consultation
appointment and then a month later, I was scheduled for a regular gyn
appointment. I was nervous for it the whole day and couldn't get it out of my
mind. When it came time for the appointment, the nurse who took my vitals could
tell I was very nervous (I had known this nurse for about a decade). She told me
to try to relax and that the doctor was going to talk to me before I got
The doctor talked me through what was going to happen. Since I had just had a
breast exam, I only had to get undressed from the waist down and I was given a
paper sheet to cover up with. She had gotten the virgin speculum so as to be as
easy as possible. I was left to wait on the table for about ten minutes, as she
is a very busy doctor and sees several patients at the same time. When she came
back, I noticed she had already set out all of the tools she needed so as to
make it go as quickly as possible. She pulled out the stirrups and asked me to
lie back, and guided my feet into them. She told me to scoot forward as much as
I could and told me to "let your knees fall open." Then she told me she would be
touching me and as soon as I felt it, I scooted away. She stopped and asked if I
was okay, asking me to scoot back down the table. I did and was more prepared
this time for what her fingers would feel like on the outside of my vagina. She
just spread the lips at several different angles to examine the vulva as
thoroughly as possible. She lubed up the speculum and then told me I would feel
some pressure. Considering I had never even used a tampon, it was definitely
more than just some pressure that I felt. I cried out as she put the speculum in
and opened it. I was sweating and crying and she was telling me I was doing
great and that she was almost done. I felt some pressure as she swabbed my
cervix, but it was over quickly. She finally took the speculum out and I thought
I was done, so I started to get out of the stirrups. She told me to stop, and
put some lube on two fingers and stuck them into my vagina. Then she palpated my
tummy and told me my ovaries and uterus felt normal. She then put one finger in
my rectum and palpated my tummy again. She took her two fingers out of my
vagina, and just put one into my rectum and she rotated it, feeling the
different angles of it. After she took her finger out, she told me I could get
The whole thing took maybe five minutes, even though it felt like an eternity. I
felt violated afterwards, but I knew it was for my own good. I certainly cannot
check my own vagina as well as a doctor can and my reproductive health is very
important to me. I don't look forward to going, obviously, but the anxiety of
the appointment is far worse than the actual appointment.
June 14, 2013
Chair turned into exam table, mobile above table had pictures of nice looking
men to ease stress of exam, legs were up in side legs of chair, I scooted down,
felt her touching vagina and inspecting outside, speculum inserted for several
minutes for visual inspection, pap test, tests for STD's since it was my first
exam and 1st pregnancy exam, two fingers inserted in vagina as she pushed on my
abdomen, then 2 fingers in vagina and 1 in rectum. She was very nice but couldn't
wait for it to be over. Embarrassing!
May 31, 2013
When I got to the hospital (note: I was in the ER when I had my first pelvic
exam) I was having bad belly pain and my dad took me to the ER. I was taken
back immediately and all the vitals and crap and when I was done with that the
doc came in and did his exam. All the tests came back normal or "negative" and
he said that he was going do a pelvic exam. I asked for a female and flat out
said to him, "I don't trust you nor do I know you." He went to look and a nurse
came back and said there was no females available, and that when the exam was
over I could go home if the results where normal so when she said that I kicked
my dad out and just asked if she'd stay with me and when she said "Yes" I said I
want it to be fast.
He came in I was told to take off my underwear and I did. The exam was actually
fast but very. I was very near tears when he told me to pull my knees to my
chest and to pull them farther apart so that he could look at my anus. After
the exam and I was told to get back dressed and the results came back normal. I
was diagnosed with spasms and was sent home.
I was praying that I never was going to have to see him again! Still nervous
May 28, 2013
The doctor was recommended by the school. My mom had told me that she
specialized in girls my age and a little older and that she would check my
private parts, so I was real surprised with the colder than ice nurse told me to
take off everything and put on the paper gown. My mom sat down in a chair and
the nurse prepared the table and a tray of instruments. Her last move was to
extend the stirrups. I undressed next to my mom and finally shyly took off my
underpants. The gown was pediatric and came to my mid thigh. The nurse had me
sit on the table and she did my vitals, then she took me to the scale and
weighed me. The doctor came in and did all the usual stuff, but also did my
first breast exam. She didn't talk to me, only to my mom. The nurse and the
doctor put me in the stirrups and then widened them out so that I was spread
eagle with my butt suspended over the table. The nurse folded my paper gown up
to my chest and the doctor put on two gloves I never felt so naked in my life.
She started examining my external vagina. She asked my mom how long I had been
having periods? When was my last one? Any problems?
She asked the nurse for a pediatric speculum and a tube of K-Y Jelly. She
spent a good minute spreading cold K-Y over my outer and inner vaginal lips and
up and down my butt crack and anus. She then coated the small speculum with K-Y.
She changed gloves and then pushed the speculum in me. It was small but so was I
so it hurt really bad. She opened the speculum up to increase the discomfort and
took a long look inside. She turned to my mom and said, "We won't do a PAP smear
until next fall."
She finally closed the speculum and took it out. Then she started coating my
vagina and anus with a new layer of K-Y. She looked at my mom and said,
"Danielle is too small for a bi-manual exam, so I will do a recto-vaginal exam
and a full rectal instead. She changed gloves again and lubed up two fingers.
She pushed her index finger all the way into my vagina and her middle finger up
my butt. I could see the excess lube matting my sparse pubic hair and then I
felt the pressure of her fingers. This went on for over a minute. She withdrew
both fingers and then put her middle finger back up my butt. This part of the
exam lasted another minute. I thought she was finished when she helped me out of
the stirrups. But she quickly turned me on my left side and pushed my left leg
to my chest. Before I knew what was going on, she had her middle finger up my
butt again. She only fingered me for about twenty seconds. The nurse used a warm
wash cloth to wipe my pubic hair, vagina, and butt crack. I looked at the end of
the table near the stirrups and the paper was soaked with lube. I was especially
despondent when the doctor told my mom as she was leaving the room, "Make an
appointment for Danielle for six months and we will do a follow-up exam like
I leaked K-Y Jelly from my vagina and butthole into my panties all the way home.
May 4, 2013
I was taken into an exam room by a Nurse, who took my vitals. Regular stuff.
Before she left the room, she told me to take off my clothes, and lay down on my
back on the exam table, so I did. It was probably another 20 minutes before the
doctor entered the exam room. I was naked, exposed, and cold. They didn't even
give me one of those stupid open-backed gowns. On top of all of this, I had a
bad case of Girlie "crotch-rot" (turned out to be yeast infection), so I smelled
really ripe. This was why I went to the clinic in the first place. It was just
embarrassing lying on my back on the table with my legs open. When the doctor
came in, he put my feet in the stirrups at the end of the table, and then pulled
a tray out of the end of the exam table. He treated me like a piece of meat. The
speculum was WAY too big for me- I'm a small girl, and it hurt a lot. He shoved
it into me, and then spread me to the point of pain. The PAP was also done in a
brutal way- he shoved the swab way deep into me. Maybe I'm being overly
dramatic, but I don't believe a Physician should treat a patient this way. He
did write a prescription for my infection that did heal me; I just don't like
being treated that way.
March 26, 2013
Went in with my mom for a checkup. Doctor did all the normal stuff and made me
get in the stirrups and spread by vagina and butt cheeks open. He didn't put
anything in my vagina (probably because it is too tight and I am a virgin) but
he put a finger in my butt to feel all my organs and pushed on my belly at the
same time. It was really embarrassing and he had some poop on his finger when he
was done. The nurse gave me a baby wipe after and I was able to clean my butt
before I got dressed. My mom was in the room the whole time.
March 17, 2013
was like nervous. I had lost my virginity the night before. I had a very thick
hymen and did not know it and my bf ripped it hard....and I had part of it
left...I was bleeding and got scared and went to the dorm nurse who sent me to
the doctor (I go to a boarding school). He clipped the remaining tags of skin
and had me use a panty liner and told me to use it for a few days. It was
normal to bleed after your first time, he said. I had no idea.
I was embarrassed as hell because the doctor was only the
second male to ever see me down there.
February 15, 2013
I told mom she could stay in the waiting room when I went back. The nurse called
my name back and took me to a triage room and took my vitals and weight. She
escorted me to an exam room and she asked what I was being seen for. I told her
I wanted to get birth control pills and she said the nurse practitioner may want
to do a pap smear. I told I knew that already.
I waited for the nurse practitioner to enter the room. She introduced herself
and was very friendly. She asked me about my past medical and family medical
history and about my gyn history. She asked me if I am now or ever have been
sexually active and I told her no. She left the room to allow me to change and
even gave me more time to go to the bathroom to empty my bladder. Before she
left she explained to me about the Pap smear and showed me the instruments used
for it. She told me about the pelvic exam and how itís done and told me to just
let myself relax.
After returning to the room she started her exam. She asked me to lie on my back
and expose my breasts. She also explained to me how to examine my own breasts
and told me how often I should do it. She felt of my abdomen and then pulled the
stirrups out and had me to scoot to the end of the table. I was lying there with
my legs spread she said just relax your go to feel my fingers spread your labia
apart and youíll feel the tips of the speculum. I was relaxed but when the
speculum touched my vagina tensed up. She told me to take a deep breath because
she notice me tensing up I relaxed and the eased the speculum in and I tensed up
as she was sliding it in. It kinda hurt but not excruciating. The worst part was
when she opened the speculum that really hurt. I asked her if she could close it
up some and she took it down a couple of notches but she couldnít see my cervix.
So she opened it back up 1 more. I took some deep breaths to relax although it
hurt. After the speculum exam she did the bimanual exam which wasnít to bad just
a lot of pressure and cold jelly. Other than that it wasnít too bad and I was
even a virgin.
January 31, 2013
My stepfather picked me up from school and told me he had made a doctorís
appointment. We went there and we were taken to the room and I was told to
undress. I asked for the door to be closed and for my stepfather to leave, but
was told "it's nothing anybody hasn't seen before", and that I should "grow up".
A few minutes of sitting naked on a table, the doctor came in, and never once
spoke to me. He was speaking only to my Stepfather, explaining to him what was
being done, and letting him watch. I've never been more humiliated, and to this
day, 15 years later, I have never been back to another doctor. I honestly don't
care if I die of cancer; I simply WILL NOT go back.
I'm 28 years old & I'm still a virgin, which means that according to all the
doctors I've seen, I don't need a Pap smear or a pelvic exam. But I had a Mirena
IUD inserted during a laparoscopy in Oct 2012, hoping that the Mirena would help
with my period pain....WRONG!!! Mirena is awful!!! I wouldn't recommend it to a
rock!! Anyway, I decided I wanted it out, & so I had an appointment at the gyn
clinic anyway to check how things were going....they don't think the Mirena
could worsen the pain....but I still wanted it out! So I get taken into another
room because it has a proper exam table (complete with stirrups) & they find a
female nurse to chaperone the male doctor. Undress from the waist down, cover
with a sheet, butt to the edge of the bed, feet in stirrups.....& doctor sits
between my legs.... Since it was just for the Mirena removal, he didn't do the
external exam, just went straight in with the speculum! And OUCH!!! It was
hurting like anything!! & then he opened it, OWWW!!! The pain & the pressure I
felt was so unbelievable!! Removing the Mirena wasn't too bad, as that's just
grabbing the strings with forceps & pulling, but it did hurt when it came
through my cervix!!! (A little cramp the nurse says....) Then I have to have 2
swabs taken because this doctor believes I might have some pelvic infection even
though I've never been sexually active!!! The removal of the speculum was only
slightly less painful than the insertion..... No bimanual pelvic exam either,
got to say, I'm not sure my body could have taken it by that point!!! So now its
2 days later, & I'm still sore, & still spotting.... Makes me NOT want to have a
pelvic exam &/or Pap smear in the future!
January 28, 2013
I thought a woman would be better my first time. But she was very harsh. She
didn't explain anything to me. I read about the speculum so that was no
surprise. It still felt very rough, and so did the vaginal exam, but I had
nothing to compare it to. Then when she jammed her finger as hard as she could
into my rectum, I wanted to cry. I actually thought she tore it open.
After that I chose a male who acted gay. Now that I am much older, doctors
voluntarily warn me in advance and explain this part of the exam to me. They
even tell me when they will insert their fingers, when they will insert the
speculum and to relax. But on that day, I felt the woman just carelessly
pillaged my body. My mom asked me if it was traumatic, and I said no because I
was too horrified to tell her what had happened. And knowing my mom, she would
have called and yelled at her.
December 18, 2012
I am a 27-year old virgin, which the doctor
was made aware of. He was very sensitive to the fact that the exam might
be painful for me, so he decided to forego the speculum portion, and
even discussed not obtaining a pap smear. I told him I thought I could
handle the pap smear, so he managed to obtain 2 swabs by just using his
finger, instead of the speculum. I did feel some pain when he inserted
his finger into my vagina and when it was inside, but he was very
understanding and gentle and kind, and I knew if I told him it was
painful, he would have stopped immediately. He was very concerned about
causing me any kind of pain. The pelvic exam lasted probably about 1
minute or less. He seemed to do a modified (1 finger) bimanual, which
was very fast. He did not do a rectal exam.
He told me what he was doing
at all times and that I would feel pressure when he inserted his finger
into my vagina. He also did a very quick breast exam, with me lying down
on the exam table. I was very anxious about the exam, but it went really
fast, didn't hurt too much, and actually wasn't that embarrassing. I
think it is all about finding a good provider who is sensitive, caring,
understanding, gentle, and kind.
November 12, 2012
August 2003 I was getting married at the age of 21, and I was a virgin, so I
figured I should probably go in for the dreaded examination before I became
The campus health clinic had all-male doctors at the time, but it did have
female nurse-practitioners who offered premarital exams. I felt mortified at the
thought of having a man perform that exam, so I booked with one of the
nurse-practitioners. I was given a cloth gown and left alone to undress, then
the nurse returned. A female assistant came with her as a chaperone. This
assistant stood at the side of the room with her back to me for most of the
exam, only turning occasionally to hand the nurse tools. The nurse was a
pleasantly plump short woman with short hair and a gentle demeanor, probably in
her 30s or 40s. I let her know that I was a virgin, although I suspected that I
had broken my own hymen a few years earlier (cliff-jumping into water feet
The nurse put up the footrests and I guided my feet into them. I remember she
instructed me to "Scoot," and I tried to scoot away from her. "No, no, scoot
towards me, dear," she said. "Oh, of course," I thought, realizing how silly it
had been to think otherwise. "They always seem to want to scoot away from me..."
she said with a smile. I was now positioned with my bottom almost off the table.
She started by feeling the outside of my vagina, then spread my lips and
inserted the speculum. It was tight but the discomfort was not too bad. She kept
on telling me to relax. She got it into place without too much trouble, then the
assistant handed her the swab for the Pap smear. "You're going to feel a pinch,"
she warned me.
It was a short and sharp not-quite-pain, and then the speculum was out and the
Pap smear was over. She did the bimanual exam next. She put her fingers into my
vagina with one hand, and I remember that there was pressure when she pushed on
my abdomen with the other hand. She asked me if that hurt at all, and I said,
"No, just pressure."
At some point she confirmed that my hymen had been fragmented. She said that she
did not think I would have too much pain or discomfort having sex for the first
time. (Note: she was wrong about that!) After the bimanual exam, we were done. I
do not recall her doing a breast exam, and she definitely did not do a
recto-vaginal exam. I left the clinic that day thinking that it had not been all
that bad, and that I had been putting it off out of anxiety for nothing. I have
been examined by one male doctor since then, and he was surprisingly gentle. The
female doctors weren't rough, but he was so delicate I could barely feel
anything. So, see a female if that helps you to get comfortable, but don't let
the prospect of seeing a man scare you off. There are some really good male
doctors out there.

My doctor came into the room and we talked for a few minutes. He asked questions about my history and lifestyle. Then he did a quick breast exam and told me to do one myself each month. Next I was told to lie back on the table and scoot my bottom all the way to the edge. He helped me get my feet into the stirrups and then told me I had to scoot even further down. He did a quick visual exam and then told me he was going to touch me now. He inserted his fingers and used the other hand to press on my tummy. Then he slipped his fingers out and told me he was going to insert the speculum. He told me the pap smear might pinch a little and it did. Then he pulled it out and offered his hand to help me sit up. That was it. It wasn't nearly as traumatic as I thought it would be.
August 10, 2012
The doctor came in and greeted me and my mom. She asked my mom to wait outside
the room for a few minutes. Then she asked me a lot of questions; did I have a
boyfriend, had I kissed a boy, was I sexually active, have I been touched in my
private area, if knew about the different forms of birth control, and if I
needed birth control now, did I use tampons etc. She asked if I had questions
and I said no but I was nervous and wanted her to tell me what she was doing.
My mom was asked back in and the doctor explained what all she was going to
exam and for my mother to stand at the head of the bed. The doctor look into my
eyes, ears and throat, felt under my chin and shoulders. Then she held my wrist
for a long moment then listened to my heart and lungs. I was asked to lie down
put my feet in the stirrups and slide my bottom to the edge of the bed, the
nurse draped a sheet over me and the doctor put on gloves and sat down. She
explain what she was doing and why. It felt strange having someone touch me even
when I knew she was going too. She just seemed to touch and spread me but she
didn't enter me until the end when she stuck her finger in my rectum. After that
part she examined my breast and showed me how to do it myself.
Then I sat up and she told me she didn't find anything wrong but she wanted a
blood sample. I can get dressed and she will call my mother if I needed to come
back before a year. My mother asked her about birth control and the doctor said
I didn't want any and that when I became sexual active I only had to call her.
She handed me her card and left.
July 8, 2012
The first part of my exam started out as a general exam--she checked my heart, lungs, skin, ears and throat. She then proceeded to do a breast exam, which had two parts. First, I had to sit up so she could look at my breasts; and second, she had me lay back on the table so she could feel my breasts and check my nipples for discharge. For my pelvic, she did both the speculum and bimanual exam, along with the Pap. I had some cramping when she did part of the Pap, as well as some pain at my vaginal opening when she opened the speculum. Both parts went by really quickly and I was surprised that I wasn't more tense when she examined me.
The nurse took my medical history in the exam room with my mother beside me. Then the nurse asked me to undress and put on a cloth backless gown and sat on the side of the exam table. After a few moment, the doctor came in with the nurse and the doctor went through my medical history. The doctor instructed me to kneel on the side of the exam table and put my both arms on the table. I was so embarrassed that my bare bottom was sticking up in the air with everybody in the room looking at me. Then I was so shock that a thermometer was stuck into my anus and took my temperature rectally. After that, the doctor put his gloved finger in my anus and turned his finger inside my rectum. I felt uncomfortable and wanted to leave the room right away. After this was over, the doctor asked me to sit on the exam table and then he lowered my gown and gave me a breast exam. He ran his fingers around my breast and my nipple and he did the same procedure with my other breast. Afterwards, he instructed me to lie down on the exam table and put my feet in the stirrups. He, at the same time, told me to slide my bottom to the side of the table so that my genitals were exposed completely in front of him. I was very nervous at that moment and scared. The doctor put on a pair of gloves and started to exam my genitals by running his hands around my labia and clitoris. He then spred my labia and checked my vulva. Without any warning, I felt that he had two fingers inside my vagina and checked my abdomen with the other hand. I was so nervous and embarrassed. The doctor then changed another glove and inserted one finger in my vagina and one finger in my rectum which I felt quite uncomfortable that I closed my eyes and held my breath. After he removed his fingers from me, I could hear a rattling sound of a metal speculum. Then I knew that it was going to insert it into my vagina. He lubricated it with KY jelly and it was inserted into me slowly. My vagina was spread wide opened so that the cervix was completely revealed to the doctor. He inserted a kind of a brush and took tissue sample from my cervix. Then he unlocked the speculum and removed it from my vagina and told me that you were done. I was so relieved that I just put my clothes back on quickly and left the room with some lubricants dripping out from my vagina and wetting my panties.
May 19, 2012
The Dr. had good bedside manners. As I recall, the fact that I knew him and his family from church, I believe helped me relax. Since the doctor explained what he was going to do and the manner in which he explained it, helped make me less embarrassed. The nurse also told me that she has the same procedure done, which again helped me relax. Again this all occurred nearly 20 years ago so I'm relying strictly on memory. I laid flat on my back while he examined my breasts, abdomen and glands. As I recall the nurse helped me turn on my right side while the doctor listened to my heart and lungs. The examination of my external genitals and the bimanual exam was previously discussed with my mother, so it was expected. I should state that my mother had a pelvic exam or possibly many by the same doctor. Even though the doctor explained that he would do a rectal exam, it was uncomfortable. The speculum exam was explained to me again before he inserted the instrument so I had no uneasiness. Nothing else really stands out in my memory.
May 10, 2012
It was really weird. It was almost surrealistic. At 9:00 I am sitting in math class. At 11:00, I am thirty miles away from home, sitting naked in a gown with a drape over my privates, wondering if I had washed down below that morning. Fifteen minutes later, I'm naked from the waist up and a strange man is feeling and commenting on the size and shape of my breasts. I had never seen stirrups extended before and I really didn't have a clue what was coming. The nurse helped me into the stirrups and the doctor moved my hips down to the edge of the table before he removed my drape. My mom actually moved so she could watch the exam. The doctor kept telling me to relax and that I might feel some pressure or discomfort. It took four tries to get the smallest speculum in. The smear test with the brush was painful. The two fingers in my vagina were tough to take, but the fingers up my butt were just too much. Now remember that I have never had anything in either hole before that minute. He kept telling my mom how small and tight my butthole was. It wasn't tight enough to keep from fingering it three times and putting that big steel thing up inside me. To add insult to injury, mom took me back to school and told everybody in the office that I had had a full gyn exam. I sat in the office the rest of the day as lube oozed out of my vagina and butthole onto my panties.
April 22, 2012
I was taken to the examination room and the nurse took my vitals. After that, I was told to undress and put on a cloth gown without back. After a few minutes, the doctor came in with the nurse and lowered my gown and examined my breast. Then he asked me to lie down and put my legs on the stirrups and slid my bottom right at the edge of the examination table. My genital was completely exposed to the doctor and I was embarrassed at that moment. He then run his fingers around my vulva and clitoris. Afterwards, he spred my vulva and put his fingers in my vagina which I felt a bit uncomfortabe, but he comforted me and told me to relax which I did. He then put the other hand on my belly and felt my uterus and ovaries. After a while, I could feel that he put one finger in my vagina and one finger in my anus to do the examination. Then he inserted a speculum in me and opened up my vagina so that he could see the cervix clearly and then a pap smear was performed. Finally, he removed the speculum from my vagina and I was given some tissues to clean off the lubricant from my vulva and anus. I was so relieved that it was over. But I am sure I won't be so embarrassed the next time after I had this first experience.
April 17, 2012
I was taken to the exam room with my mom. My history was taken and the nurse
told me to take everything off and she started to prep things for my exam. My
mom helped me undress and put on the paper top. I sat on the table and the
nurse checked my vitals.When the doctor came in, he had the nurse get the stirrups out.
The doctor had
me lie back and did a breast exam. Then the doctor had me put my feet in the
stirrups and told me to spread my legs wide open. He checked me out and then
inserted a speculum and opened it wide. It was uncomfortable and I felt very
exposed. The nurse and my mom stood behind the doctor and watched everything.
After the speculum was removed, the doctor inserted his fingers way up into my
vagina and felt my abdomen with his other hand. After he was done, he removed
his fingers. I had KY jelly all over, even in my pubic hair. He gave me a
tissue to wipe with everyone watching me.
I thought it was finally over when told me to stand up. The doctor had me turn
around and face the table. I was then told to kneel on the table and lean
forward and put my elbows down on the table. As I leaned forward the gown would
not stay closed and my breasts were exposed and in this position my bottom was
sticking up and my legs were apart. I was so humiliated. There was no part of
me that was not exposed to everyone in the room. The doctor inserted a scope
into my rectum, then removed it and inserted his finger and pushed it deep
inside my rectum. It felt like his finger was a foot long and he used a huge
glob of KY that was all over me again. During the rectal exam i felt like i was
going to have a bowel movement. The feeling was very strong. The exam was
finally over I was given another tissue to wipe again in front of everyone. I
got dressed as the doctor talked to my mom about the exam. As we walked out of
the office I could feel how red my face was and I felt the people in the waiting
room all knew what had just happened in the exam room. As we walked to the car
I could feel my pants were wet from all the KY jelly that was pushed up inside
me. I couldn't wait to get home and get cleaned up.
After checking my vitals and listening to my lungs and
heart, the doctor examined my breasts while I was sitting at the end of the exam
table and told me to do self-examination of my breasts periodically to check for
any lumps or growths. Then the nurse raised the upper part of the table to a 45
degree angle and instructed me to lie down on the pillow that was there. She
assisted me to put my feet in the stirrups and scoot my bottom down to the edge
of the table. The doctor examined my external genital area by feeling around my
labia, clitoris, the entrance to my urethra and some glands by my vagina. He
told me that these glands secreted a lubricant which helped lubricate the vagina
during sexual intercourse. Next he got a clear plastic speculum and slowly
inserted it into the vagina. After it was in the proper position, he opened the
blades of the speculum so that he could view my cervix. He inserted a couple of
swabs through the speculum to take samples of my cervix I guess to send to a
medical lab to see if I had cervical cancer or other problems. Then he closed
the blades and withdrew the speculum. Next the nurse put some KY jelly on two of
his fingers on his gloved right hand and he inserted them into my vagina. He
felt around to see if there were any problems. Next he left his fingers in there
and used his left hand to feel the area just above my pubic area. He said that
he was checking my fallopian tubes and ovaries to see if they were normal and to
see if I was experiencing any tenderness. Then he withdrew his fingers and I
thought we were finished with the exam. But the nurse put some more lubricant on
his right index finger. He smeared some of it on my anus and then pushed his
finger into my rectum. He twisted his finger around feeling all the walls of the
rectum. Then he pushed his finger in even further and used his left hand to feel
my internal female organs. He noted that he was doing this to check on my uterus
to see if it was the normal size and in the right position. This was quite
uncomfortable to me. Then he withdrew his finger from my rectum and said that
everything seemed to be normal. He left the room and the nurse gave me some
tissue to wipe away the excess KY jelly from my vagina and rectal area. I
quickly got dressed and left the dressing room. The receptionist at the front
desk told me that the doctor would call me once the lab test results were back
from the Pap smear if he found any abnormalities. However, he never did call so
I assumed that everything was all right.
I was told to undress and lie on the chair. I spread my
legs putting them in the stirrups. She inserted a speculum in my vagina. It was
cold but it didn't bother me. When she opened it felt a bit strange, but it
didn't hurt. She then looked a few moments into the vagina and then pulled the
speculum out. Then she inserted a finger into my vagina and gently palpitated my
abdomen. It didn't hurt at all and she was nice but I felt strange because
somehow I had to go because I needed birth control pills. And I'm very shy.
The nurse brought me back into the exam room and took my
vitals and history, then he (a male nurse) excused himself and told me to take
all my clothes off while he was gone. I stripped naked
and sat on the exam table, and it seemed like a long wait, maybe ten minutes.
The doctor (a woman) came in followed by the same nurse, she examined me from
head to toe while he assisted her, i.e. took notes, handed her instruments, etc.
He never seemed to look at me and I was very comfortable after a couple minutes,
it didnít' even feel like I was naked because they didn't make any deal out of
it. I think I would have felt more exposed in a gown that was constantly being
raised or lowered. Just being nude and accepting it was surprisingly easy.
The doctor was my child doctor who I had seen since I was
little. He is a small town doctor. He came in and took my sheet and through it
in the hamper. The whole exam was with me in the nude in front of him and his
older nurse and my Mom. When I saw him at church the next Sunday he smiled at
me. I was so embarrassed.
My mother, an OB/GYN nurse had prepared me well including
let me observe one of her exams shortly before my first one. I knew what was
going to happen but the feelings, emotional and physical, were new. I am not
exactly looking forward to my next one, but will go without trepidation.
Doctor first examined my breasts while I was sitting up,
then had me lie down and examined them again, then did pelvic, then I was done!
I was taken into a small room where a nurse took all of my
regular signs then was given a gown and told to undress with my underwear off
but I could leave my socks on because the room was a bit cold. I waited until I
met the dr. Then the real fun began. The doctor spoke with me for a few moments
before he lowered the bed. he asked a few questions and then asked me to lie
back and relax as much as possible. he placed my knees in the leg rests which
made me feel very embarrassed because I was exposed to a complete stranger. He
covered me with a drape as he was putting the gloves on and warming everything.
He gently began the exam and spoke with me the entire time. After the standard
exam stuff was over he explained to me that he felt something under my cervix
that he could not feel completely. He then asked me if he could do a full rectal
exam. One with me still in the stirrups as he had one hand in my rectum and the
other in my vagina (I felt a ton a pressure!) then after that he lowered the leg
rests and had me lie on my side and he lubricated his fingers and placed some
sort of speculum in my rectum to open me up even wider. Unfortunately this was
very painful. My doctor was very understanding and took his time. I know it
sounds bad but it really wasnít just the ending was a bit rough but he saved my
Started out very embarrassing, but the Dr. was pretty cool
with me and my dad by the time it was over.
She explained what would be done, and how the exam checked
for various abnormalities, and allowed me to look in and see my feminine parts.
Then, told me she would put a finger in my rectum, did it, and I had no
opportunity to voice any objection. That part felt violating.
Was asked to adopt different positions, on my back, bent
over and stood up whilst i was examined. doctor used several fingers and 3-4
different medical devices. He was very thorough and took his time to do his job
properly and not rush through it.
I had to take of my pants and slip. The doctor came into
the room and wanted to exam my breast first. I move my shirt and bra up and the
doctor examined my breast. Than I had to sit down on the examination chair and
had to put my legs in some kind of holder. The doctor started to exam my
genitals. He check the labia first and inserted a speculum afterwards. After the
pap smear was taken he performed a bimanual exam.
On the day my husband of 2 weeks and 3 days drove me to the
doctors. We saw the receptionist. Then I was shown to a small room. Where I was
told to take all of my cloths off and to put this paper gown thing on. My
husband was with me in the room. He helped me to undress and to put the gown on.
I was nervous. Then I was shown into another room. I was then told to get up
onto this sort of table covered with a white sheet. I reluctantly got onto this
thing. I had to lie down on my back. I really got worried when they put my feet
up in the stirrups. Then I had to wriggle down the table so that my private
parts were there for this doctor. He examined my breasts. Then my belly. Then he
did the, internal on me. I was so embarrassed. Lying there having that done too,
me. my husband was in the room with me while all of it was being done. Having to
have that metal speculum pushed inside me was awful.
Not much to tell, doctor did a thorough exam, found no
I was very nervous about the entire thing and was
embarrassed that someone was looking down there.
The doctor did a breast exam first and showed
me how to do a self-exam. She then helped put my feet in the stirrups, and
explained what the pelvic exam would consist of. She was extremely thorough with
the external exam, and I felt slightly embarrassed. The speculum was next, and
was quite uncomfortable. But, the pap smear was obtained without a hitch. She
then inserted 2 fingers into my vagina in order to examine my reproductive
organs. It felt kind of weird when she pushed down on my lower stomach to feel
my ovaries. Last but not least, she performed a dreaded rectal exam. That was
the least fn; but at least it was quick!
Being 14, I really didn't know much about a
full exam. A few of my friends had had them and all they told were horror
stories. So I was plenty scared when I went in. It was a school day, a Thursday
morning. Mom took me to a public health clinic that did first time teen exams on
Thursday morning. After all of the paper work and a urine sample, I was taken to
an exam room. The nurse weighed and measured my height . She then sent me to a
curtained area, handed me a drape, and said "I need all of clothes off for your
exam." I went behind the curtain and slowly took off my clothes. When I came out
from behind the curtain, the nurse was putting an under pad on the table and
extending the stirrups. A series of duck-billed silver things, a tube of K-Y
Jelly, and some gloves were laid out on the tray next to the table. A few
minutes later, a middle aged bald guy entered the room and introduced himself as
the doctor. He looked at my chart and then told the nurse to expose me to the
waist. He listen to my heart, felt my neck, a did a breast exam both sitting up
and lying down. Then he told the nurse to expose me from the navel down and
position me in the stirrups. While this was going on he asked me about my
periods, discharge, urinary, and bowel habits. Then as he sat down between my
legs, he asked me if I had emptied my bladder and if I had had a bowel movement
that morning. He began to examine my outer genitals and my anus. He inserted one
finger into my vagina. Then he picked a speculum, coated it with K-Y and told me
to breath deeply. I felt the cold steel enter me and then I felt the instrument
begin to open. I would not describe it as painful, but really uncomfortable. He
shined a light inside of me then took some fluid samples and did a Pap smear
with a brush. He took the speculum out and then did a Bi-manual exam with two
fingers of his left hand. I am sure that he was only inside of me for less than
a minute, but it seemed much longer. He told me to relax and keep my buttocks
down on the table. After the bimanual, he regloved, put some K-Y on my anus and
without telling me did an exam of my vagina and rectum. He finished the exam
with a rectal exam with his middle finger pushed way up into me. That was the
most uncomfortable part of the exam. The nurse handed me some wet wipes to wipe
off the excess K-Y Jelly. He told me I could get dress and that I was very
healthy. He said he would see me in a year. But he wouldn't, because the next
year I convinced my mom to take me to a private gyno in town and that is where I
have gone ever since.
The doctor came in and took off his coat and
rolled up his sleeves. He did my breasts first and then had the nurse help me
get into the stirrups. It wasn't that bad, but when he did the part where he
used his fingers, he came around to my side and did it. That was not what I was
expecting. I just felt very naked and embarrassed because he was a family
I went in and they did a breast exam and it
was way embarrassing. then i got into the stirrups and they did all the normal
things. bimanual, speculum, and things like that. then i was about to get
dressed and they decided they were going to do a rectal exam. they made me lay
on the table with my butt in the air and my elbows supporting me on the table.
They put their fingers and a
metal thing into my anus. It was horrible.
He made me take off my underwear then he
raised my gown all the way up to below my breast he pulled my legs apart and
used a standing lamp to shine between my legs. i was very scared when he first
touched me. he told me to relax and he inserted 2 fingers in it felt
uncomfortable and i squeaked a little when he pressed down on my lower abdomen.
He then took out his fingers and replaced it with a
speculum. Finally he did a rectal.
The doctor escorted
me to the room and my mom waited in the waiting room. he opened the door and let
me in and gave me a paper gown to change into. a female nurse then came in after
a while and told me i was going to get 3 enemas. at the time a had no idea what
it was, but she explained it to me. she told me to lay on my left side and rise
my right leg up to my chest, i did so. she lubricated her finger and stuck it
deep into my rectum. She moved her finger around, lubricating me on the
inside. she then told me that she was going to insert the nozzle. i had no idea
how that big thing was going to fit! then, reluctantly, it was inserted and
inflated to the max. the water then started to flow in. About 1/3 of the
way through she told me to turn on my stomach, and then on my right side. then
after holding it for about 10-15 minutes a was all-out to go to the bathroom.
this happened 2 other times until i was fully cleared out. then a male doctor
came in the room and told me to get on my knees and elbows for a rectal exam. he
lubricated my rectum the same way and inserted the proctoscope. he looked around
for a while, it was very uncomfortable. finally he removed it and told me to
turn around on my back and to put my feet in the stirrups. he moved my butt down
so it was ascending over the edge of the table. he first looked around on the
outside and then stuck his fingers inside, touching my stomach as he did so.
then a rectovaginal exam was preformed this was very uncomfortable because of
the enemas and rectal exam. then finally he inserted the speculum and opened the
wings as far as he could and looked into my vagina with and light, also a pap
spear was done. he removed the speculum and i was allowed to put my clothes back
on. Then i was done!
After I undressed completely the nurse took
my weight and asked some questions to my Mom then gave me a sheet to cover up
with. then the Doctor came in and my Mom said I needed a check up and then he
took away my sheet and through it in the hamper. He said we wouldn't need to
cover up with him checking everything on me. He then did check everything and
seemed to go way to slow for me it seemed like it took forever for him to
examine me. I was so embarrassed and shaking a little . I felt so exposed being
naked in front of my Mom and Doctor for almost 45 minutes. I told Mom I never
wanted to go back. But I had to for school things
My mom didn't explain anything
at all. I was taken out of school and taken home. She told me that I was seeing
a special doctor and she gave me a fleet enema. At the doctors office, mom
filled out paper work After about 30 minutes I was taken to a nursing station
and weighed and measured. The nurse asked me about my periods. I told her about
the pain and the bleeding. I went back to the waiting room with mom. I just
thought he would give me pills or something. The same nurse called me back and
to us to an exam room. After my blood pressure was checked, the nurse said. "All
of your clothes off including your bra and under panties, and put on this gown.
I stripped behind a curtain and got on the table. After the breast and abdomen
exam, I was on my back on the exam table with my gown raised to expose me to the
waist. The doctor did a speculum exam with pap smear, a pelvic exam, a
vaginal-rectal exam, and last but not least a full rectal exam. he was not very
gentle and the exam really hurt more than it should. I have to go back for
another full exam in six months.
I went in, they took my
temperature and my medical history and then I took off my clothes and put on a
gown and a couple of minutes later the doc came in. he did breast exam, then
checked my abdomen, then pulled out the stirrups. I put my feet in them and
spread out really wide and then the doc put in his fingers and speculum and then
I was told I was done so I could get dressed. so I got off and went to get
dressed but then the doc forgot about the rectal so I was told to lie on my back
and bring my knees to my chest and he stuck his finger in my bottom
I went into the room and the
nurse came in and me and my mom were sitting there and she told me to undress
and gave me nothing and nowhere to do it because she and my mom were still in
the room. while I was undressing the doctor opened the door and walked in so
everyone outside could have seen me as well. so then it stared... I said I had a
cold and I was standing there naked and then he said he would have to examine me
completely to see what was wrong... he started with the vitals.... BP in both my
arms and legs as well as my temp in my butt... while I was sitting on the table
naked. then he looked in my eyes/ ears/ nose/ so on while I was naked and the
nurse and my mom were still in the room. lymph nodes/ axilia/ so on.... then he
stuck the tongue depressor really deep in my throat and looked around and stuck
the thing in my nose again to see where my cold came from. then my eyes and then
he decided to move on to my lungs and breathing I guess so he started palpating
and eve palpated on my breasts. then e he listened all over while I breathed and
it wouldn't have been awkward if I wants naked.... then he started squeezing and
feeling my breasts... he then went to my abdomen and felt it for a long time and
listened to it and felt for pulses in my pelvic area... again completely
naked....... then I guess he started the pelvic exam because I was told to sit
and spread my legs apart.... then lay down and put me in the stirrups while he
poked and prodded all parts of my pelvis... then e stuck a cold speculum in my
vagina and started doing a bunch of pap smears and shining flashlights down
there.... again completely naked... no bra or anything.... then he stuck fingers
in my vagina and felt around forever.... then I was told to flip over and spread
my legs apart and then he stuck his finger in my rectum... then he watched me
redress and told me to take cold medicine
My mom tried to explain what was
going to happen. She gave me a fleet enema before we went to the office. I had
to have blood work and a urine test. There were other girls my age or around my
age in the office. I was called back and weighted and had my blood pressure
taken. I was asked to undress and put on a gown. The doctor came in and asked
quite a few questions. Then he did a breast exam both sitting up and lying down.
I slid down on the table and my gown was raised to my chest. While I had been
naked for exams with my pediatrician in the past, this was different. He checked
my outer lips and then inserted on finger in my vagina. He then inserted
the speculum...cold and metal. I felt really stretched. He shined a light in my
vagina. He then did a pap smear. He took the speculum out and then he did the
two finger pelvic exam. He also did an exam with a finger in my vagina and one
in my rectum. That one really hurt. He finished with a one finger rectal exam. I
ended up having to have more tests including one in the x-ray department of the
hospital where they put a probe up into my vagina. Most of my friends have never
had a pelvic exam. Many have had rectal exams. But even the ones that have had
pelvics say mine was more complicated.
Doctor asked me
question....asked me to open my gown so he could examine my breasts. Asked me to
lay back on the table....felt of my throat, stomach. lower abdomen. Then asked
me to slide down on the table.....he placed me feet in stirrups. Turned a light
on at the end of the table. Felt of my private. pubic hair and spread me open
with his hand. Lubricated some kind of cold instrument and put it in my vagina.
I felt something up inside of me. He removed the thing from inside of me.
Lubricated his fingers and inserted them up in me. feeling around and pushing
down on my pubic area. Removed he hand from inside of me. Told me I could set up
and wipe the lubricant off of my private. Then asked me to stand up. turn around
and lean over on the exam table on my elbows. The he lubricated something and
inserted it in my rectum. spreading me open.. Removed it. and inserted his
finger way of high in my rectum...
I was told to take my jeans and
knickers off and lay on the table. Once I was on the table the nurse came back
into the room and covered my waist/pelvis with a papery sheet. Then I put my
feet into the stirrups and she told me to move ''forward'' whilst holding the
sheet up and looking at my pelvic region. She then lifted the sheet up and
pulled it above my thighs. She explained the procedure well and adjusted her
lamp whilst getting some materials ready. She proceeded to inspect my external
genitalia thoroughly, her method felt really precise, but slightly exposing,
especially as she held open the labia minora and pulled my clitoral hood back.
She also inspected my anus and informed me everything was looking normal. Then
she did the internal exam and inserted the speculum, she took 2 samples, I felt
a slight scratching sensation but all was fine, and it actually wasn't that
painful. After removing the speculum she offered me a tissue to wipe away
lubricant traces from genitals.
I filled out a medical history
while in waiting room after checking in with receptionist. After returning
history was called back to exam area where a nurse took my vitals and asked a
few questions. I had to go to a bathroom to give a urine specimen and after
exiting the bathroom the nurse escorted me to one of the several exam room. On
entering the room there was a gyn exam table with padded foot holders extended .
there was a pink paper exam gown folded on the table and a paper sheet on the
exam table. The nurse told me to remove everything "head to toe" and put on the
gown opening in front and have a seat at end of the table and cover my legs with
the sheet. I did as told - the gown was more like a vest that cover only to my
lower waist and the sheet ended up covering nothing but my thighs. After about
15 minutes the doctor entered the room followed by the nurse. The doctor briefly
reviewed my history and stated he would be doing a through exam. He briefly
checked by neck area and then had me lower my gown/vest to my waist and examined
viewed my breasts, commenting that my right breast was larger than my left one.
He then had me lie down and thoroughly examined each breast while I put my hands
over my head-it took a little less than a minute for each breast area to be
examined. He then examined my abdominal area for about 30-40 seconds-pushing
down hard off and on. He then said to the nurse "we'll do an internal now. The
nurse guided my feet into the padded holders and told me to "scoot down" to the
end of the table. She has me move to a position where I was well over the edge
of the table. My feet were in the holders which were a little less than a foot
and a half from the end of the table a raised up about 6 inches and about 2 feet
apart. I felt humiliated! while I was being positioned the doctor sat on a stool
and pulled a cart with medical stuff on it over and turn on a bright light and
the nurse arranged the sheet to cover my thighs and part of my knees-I could not
see the doctor as I was lying flat with a pillow under my head. The doctor
examined the outside of my vaginal area and spread my cheeks briefly-I had to
bare down while he probed my vaginal at a couple points-then he told me he was
going to insert a speculum. That pinched, was painful. The speculum was in for a
couple minutes while he collected specimens. After that he did a vaginal exam
for about a minute or so while pushing with his other hand on my lower
abdomen-that was somewhat uncomfortable. Then he removed the vaginal exam glove
and put on another glove and told me needed to do a vaginal-rectal exam to
further confirm findings. He asked me to bare down and did the vagianl-rectal
exam which took about 30 seconds. He said "You can sit up now" He said
everything looked good and told me what he would prescribe and needed to see me
in 6 months. the nurse handed me some tissues to clean up the ky jelly-I dressed
and checked out
My mother made the appointment
for me and informed me that I was going to have my first "Big Girl" exam. I
remember being a little nervous when my mother and I went that day. When the
Nurse called me in, we followed her down the hall to the scale and she asked me
to step on it. While standing on the scale the Nurse asked me if I wanted my Mom
present during my exam. As much as I wanted to act grown-up, I really did want
her to go in with me, so I answered yes to her question. The Nurse then led us
to the exam room and told me to sit on the exam table. She then took my vital
signs and temp. Once she was finished she said "Your mom and I are going to step
outside the door while you undress. "Now Alicia", "Everything has to come off
including your bra and underpants, you can cover up with the sheet that's on the
exam table. Once they stepped out I remember thinking "this is embarrassing".
Once I undressed I wrapped the sheet around me for it was about the size of a
beach towel. A minute later my mom and the nurse stepped back in. The nurse then
said, that the Doctor would be in shortly, then she left the room. When the
Doctor came in, I was very glad he was so nice. He explained that he knew this
was my first time and he promised to be very gentle. True to his word he was.
I'm not saying I wasn't embarrassed, but he made my first exam tolerable. He
checked me all over and my mom held my hand during the pelvic exam. I have to
admit that when I first had to put my feet in the stirrups and spread my legs
open I welled up and shed a few tears. My mom was very comforting though, so
this emotion passed quickly. My Doctor was so good at explaining everything, by
the end of the exam I felt pretty comfortable with him. I still see this Doctor
and would not think of changing. He is the best. Thank Goodness
Firstly he told me to put my
legs in the stirrups.. then he guided my butt closer to the end of the table..
he then pushed back my gown to my bellybutton and brought over his light . he
did the external exam first b4 putting his 2 fingers in .. I sort of teared when
he pushed on my tummy while his fingers were inside .. it didn't hurt it just
felt really uncomfortable .. luckily he said he did not need to do the speculum
exam this time .. I was so relieved when I heard that .. he then lowered my legs
and asked me to lie on my tummy .. he then changed his gloves and stuck his
lubricated finger into my rectum .. it did hurt a little ..
My boyfriend enjoyed it more
than me, and he didn't even see it. But he made me tell him every little detail
when we got back home. He was aroused and we ended up having sex while I
described what the doctor did to me. He had me spread my legs on the table and
put feet in stirrups. He felt around my vagina and the outer and inner lips,
putting a finger or two inside and just probing. It seemed to take forever. He
put his finger on my pee hole and also examined my clitoris, which really made
my boyfriend happy. He did the speculum exam (it was real cold), and I felt
really wide open and exposed. After that I was surprised when he slipped a
finger in my rectum because he didn't warn me about it. I had my vagina fingered
by many guys before, so that was nothing new. But that was the first time anyone
ever stuck a finger in my rectum, so it felt weird.
I had to lie on my back, put my
feet in the stirrups. I had a speculum and vaginal exam and my abdomen palpated.
The doctor then said he couldn't feel everything and he asked me to lean over
the table so that he could 'just prod me gently in the bottom' to make sure
everything was okay. This was very humiliating and embarrassing. He still wasn't
happy after this was done, though, and he asked me to get up on my hands and
knees on the table. He then asked me to rest on my elbows and to push my bottom
into the air. It was very embarrassing because I was under a light. He then
pushed his finger quite deeply into my bottom and felt around for a while. He
asked me to take a deep breath so that he could insert a second finger which was
a bit painful as he pushed really deeply into me. I felt very embarrassed about
this, it was really the worst bit and he told me I would have to have these
exams regularly as my uterus was retroverted. I was glad when it was all over,
but felt humiliated for quite a while about it.
I went in, they asked for
medical history and gave my a sheet to cover up with. After that the doc came in
and was really friendly to me. She examined my breasts and pulled out the
stirrups. She helped me get into me and she told me to spread my legs really
far. She did speculum and bimanual and by that time I was sick of it and so
embarrassed and just wanted to get out of the place. So right when she got her
fingers out she told me that she was going to do the rectal exam but I refused.
and they asked me what position I felt most comfortable in but I refused all of
them and my mom ended up holding me down while I was on all 4s and the doc had a
hard time getting her finger in my bum but she got it in and after she was done
she told my mom I was fine and she gave me some suppositories for an infection I
It was at a local "health
clinic." I was worried about being pregnant and was told that in order to
receive a pregnancy test, I had to have a pelvic exam too. The nurse was not
helpful and told me to get undressed. Then, she asked if I would allow medical
students to observe - which I said "NO." They came in anyway and I was too
embarrassed to say anything about it. When the dr. told me to lay back, I wasn't
close enough to the edge of the table, so he stood up and wrapped his arms
around my legs and pulled me hard and fast to the edge of the table. He then
pushed my legs wide apart and put a bright lamp between my legs. Then, he has
the 3 medical students (1 female and 2 males) come in for a "closer" look. He
discussed my anatomy with them and pulled and poked at my lips and clit. Then,
pushed a cold speculum into me and had each of the students look how he did it
and also, each took their turn sitting on the stool looking at my cervix. At one
point, my knees started to close and the dr. admonished me to keep them wide
open. Then, he withdrew the speculum and rammed his fingers in me and allowed
each of the 3 students to do likewise. My bottom was raw by the time I was
finished at his office. Also, the doctor and each student used a lot of K-Y, and
I was soaking wet - which let a big mess on the table. No one told me what was
happening, they just yelled if my legs started to close.
I was told to undress and tie
the robe in the back. At first, I sat up and the dr. examined me frontally. He
then told me to lie down and scoot my hip area down to the edge of the exam
table and place my feet in the stirrups. He examined it visually for a while and
then applied a speculum (at least, he warmed it up somewhat beforehand) and
spread my vaginal lips. He applied lubricant to his surgical glove and started
the digital exam of my vagina, followed by him pressing down on my abdomen.
Then, he inserted one finger each into my vagina and rectum at the same time.
Afterwards, he removed one of his surgical gloves and instructed me to get up
and bend over the side of the table. He put on a new surgical glove, reapplied
more lubricant to it, spread apart my cheeks with his one hand and proceeded to
insert his forefinger from the other hand into my rectum again. My mother had
insisted on my being screened in this manner since colon cancer had occurred
among her relatives. At the very end, he gave me a tissue to wipe my privates of
all the lubricant he had used and this too I found somewhat embarrassing.
The nurse told me to undress and
put on the gown and left the room. I was sitting on the table and the doctor
came in, she was very unfriendly. She told me lie on my back and scoot down to
the end of the table and put my feet in the stirrups. She had the nurse pull my
knees apart, and she told me to relax while she put in the speculum or it would
hurt more. She used a large one even though I was only 17 and it hurt like mad.
After she was done with that, she rubbed a gob of KY on my vagina and pushed her
fingers in. She was very rough, and she started asking me to describe my first
sexual experience while she did the exam. At one point she asked if my boyfriend
had a big penis or a small one. She pulled her fingers out, then said she needed
to examine me further and plunged them in again. Then she told the nurse to get
me on my hands and knees, and she put some KY on my anus and rubbed it in. She
stuck two fingers in my rectum and probed for a long time, asking about my bowel
movements and if I ever had anal sex. Once she was done she told me everything
felt fine and not to worry about my periods, that they would eventually be
I undressed and was given a
sheet to cover myself with. I was instructed to sit on the exam table and the
doctor would be right in and the nurse exited the room. After what seemed an
eternity, the doctor came in and instructed me to put my feet in the stirrups.
Being somewhat nervous, he assisted me by placing my feet into the cold metal
stirrups and adjusting the knee rest. He then instructed me to drop my knees
wide apart exposing my cat's opening. He then walked over donned a pair of
gloves, lubricated his thick fingers and slipped them into my tight pink pussy.
With his ungloved hand, he gently palpated my lower abdomen as he probed the
inside of my pussy with the his fingers. As he pulled his fingers from my cat,
he gently slipped one of the fingers into my bottom. When he completed the
fingering, he rolled a stool to the end of the exam table. Turning on his
gooseneck lamp he instructed me to scoot my bottom to the of the table closer to
him. I complied with his instruction but felt somewhat embarrassed. He
lubricated the speculum and slipped it into my already wet cat. I felt the
somewhat uncomfortable pressure from the speculum and the procedure being
performed. After the internal exam was complete, he took the time to educate me
on the anatomy of the vagina taking an extra moment to point out my clitoris and
telling me the number to nerve endings that converge in that one small area.
The room was super cold. The
nurse took my medical history, vitals, etc. and told me to undress completely
and cover with a sheet. My head was to a window in the back of the room, meaning
my legs were facing the door. The doctor walked it and said "ready to go?" She
pulled out the stirrups and had to help me scoot down to the edge of the table.
She had long, thing fingers and used two. She felt deeper and deeper into me,
wiggling and thrusting her fingers while pushing on my stomach. Then she
explained about the speculum and inserted it (one of the old re-usable metal
type) and opened it HUGE. The whole time she was using her fingers and then the
speculum she kept brushing against my anus, making me shiver and my nips hard. I
was so wet that she didn't even have to use KY on the speculum. I could feel my
wetness down my legs. Afterwards, she took my legs down and told me to get
dress. Then the nurse came back and said to schedule another appointment for a
Pretty routine overall I guess
.... typical physical exam procedures at first with the vaginal and rectal exams
last. I started to get a little embarrassed when the doctor told me to lie back
and scoot my rear end and hips down to the edge of the exam table and being told
to place my feet in the stirrups. The metallic touch of the speculum was a
little cold at first and it seemed like I was in that exposed position forever.
Even with plenty of lubricant being used, I still experienced a little pain when
the doctor pushed down on my abdomen and pushed his fingers deeply into my
vagina. When that was done and I heard him take his surgical gloves off, I
remember being relieved thinking it was now over. But then he told me to lie on
my side with knees up and I heard him put on a new surgical glove and squeeze
more lubricant on it. The rectal exam was more painful than the vaginal and I
was so embarrassed when he performed it since everything could be seen by both
him and my mother seated on a chair by the exam table. Finally though it was
over and he instructed me to get dressed. I remember thinking on the drive back
home with my mother that she should have explained things more to me but I
didn't say anything.
I went into a small room at a
teen clinic for a pelvic exam. The nurse told me to undress and gave me a paper
gown to wear. He left the room, when he returned he did a breast exam, and then
asked me to lay on my back and put my feet in the stirrups and slide my bottom
to the edge of the table. He told me I would feel his fingers enter me, and I
did. I could feel him spreading the lips and feeling the clitoris, and
surrounding area, then he slid his fingers into me and felt my cervix, uterus
and ovaries. He then did the speculum exam and the pap smear and it was a little
uncomfortable. He then did a rectal and vaginal exam with one finger in my
vagina and one in my anus. I was embarrassed because I was getting aroused. He
then finished up and told me dress again. To this day the pelvic exam arouses me
and I have developed a medical fetish because of it.
I was taken to the exam room and
the nurse took my vitals, weight, a bit of heath history. I was then asked to
take everything off and put on this short gown that was open in the back. I
waited what seemed like forever for the Dr to come in. Finally he came in the
room was very cold so my nipples were hard and my legs had goose bumps on them.
He cam in shook my hand and pulled down my gown to examine my breasts, feeling
them, pinching the nipples. He then had me lay down, and checked them again with
my arms over my head. He pulled my gown up to cover me op again. He took my feet
which were bare and put them in the stirrups and told me to scoot down to the
bottom of the exam table so my but was hanging off. He put this light between my
legs which was very warm. He pushed my legs apart they were so wide open. He
touched my lips pulled apart my lips felt my pee hole and made my clit pop out
and touched it. He told me to push down while one of his fingers were in me. He
then put in the speculum. He then put 2 fingers in my vagina pushing on my
ovaries. He then took out his fingers and put one in my vagina and one in my
rectum. He told me to relax my rectum so he could get his finger in. My toes
bent real hard when his finger was in my rectum it felt like I had to poop real
bad. It was very uncomfortable I was trying to push his finger out and he told
me to relax. That was it.
The doctor explained everything
first and again as he went along so there wouldn't be any surprises. He examined
my breasts first, which I actually enjoyed since it felt like a massage in a
way. The speculum was cold, but otherwise didn't bother me. The bimanual exam
didn't bother me either. My doctor was very gentle and nice to me. Other than
being a little embarrassed, it went very well. When the exam was over we had a
discussion about periods and birth control. I had very heavy periods and was
sexually active so he recommended that I start birth control. He gave me 2
months of sample packs and a prescription. I was very pleased with the whole
experience and looked forward to going back. I was glad I got a male doctor. I
think I am much more comfortable with him than I would be with a woman touching
me. I definitely hope I can keep going to the same doctor for a long time.
The nurse left the room after
she told me to undress. I took off all my clothes and sat at the end of the
table. When the doctor came in the nurse was with him. After he checked my
breast sitting up he had me lay down and checked my breast that was as well.
Then the nurse told me to slide to the end of the table. She grabbed my buttocks
and moved me down herself. Then she removed the sheet that was over me and
turned the light on. She spread me legs till it hurt and the doctor came over
and did the exam. He the speculum hurt pretty good but he told me that was
natural the first time and probably since I was tense. I noticed the nurse
didn't do anything or say anything. She just stood there staring at my genitals.
Because of her I wanted it to be over right away.
After arriving I had to wait
with my mother in the waiting room. The nurse asked us to come in. She brought
us to the exam room where the doctor was waiting. While the doctor spoke with my
mother I had to undress myself. As I was used to visit the school doctor for my
annual exam, I was used to undress myself, but having reached the age of 18
years, I was told that from now on the annual exam would also include u pelvic
exam. Therefore I wasn't allowed to keep my knickers on. After having undressed
myself, I had to urinate on a childish kind of chamber pot, which was placed in
the centre of the exam room. After urinating my vital signs (length, weight
etc.) were taken by the doctor. She also checked my eyes, ordered me to bend
over for an exam of my spine, etc. The nurse noted all the results. Sitting on
the exam table the doctor checked my blood pressure, took a blood sample,
checked my reflexes, listened to my lungs and heart, felt my glands. Then she
did a breast exam. She asked me to lay on my back and felt my abdomen. This was
followed by an intensive exam of my external genitals. (From exams in the years
before, I was used that she only lowered my knickers for a short look at my
genitals.) Then she put on a glove for the bimanual internal exam. (I was glad
my mother was present to hold my hand during this part of the exam.) After the
bimanual the doctor used a speculum for the next part of the pelvic exam. After
the pelvic exam the doctor did a rectal. Therefore I was asked to stand beside
the exam table and bend over the table. Although the doctor is a friendly women,
this part of the exam hurts. After the rectal I had to lay down again on the
table, but now on my belly to have my temperature taken. The doctor placed the
thermometer. Then she went with my mother to her desk where they discussed the
results of the exam. In the meantime the nurse stayed with me. After the doctor
and my mother ended their discussion, the doctor checked the temperature where
after I was allowed to get dressed. I felt very relieved.
