The purpose of the pelvic, or gynaecological, examination is to check on the health of the genital organs. It includes inspection of the external genital area and often visualisation of the vagina and cervix by the introduction of a vaginal speculum. At this time, bacteriological swab samples and a cervical smear test can be taken (8). During the bimanual examination one or two lubricated gloved fingers are gently introduced into the vagina whilst the other hand is placed over the pelvic area. The doctor wishes to assess the size, shape and position of the uterus, possible enlargement of the ovaries and areas that are particularly tender. The doctor is likely to concentrate on the part of the examination that most relates to your symptoms. font-size: 11.0pt">
