Why do doctors finger you?
The rectovaginal exam — Your doctor or nurse may also put a gloved finger into your rectum. This checks the muscles between your vagina and your anus.

Do OB GYN care about hair?
“We don’t care about your stubble—we want to make sure everything is healthy down there!” she says. “Hair is natural, and we’ve all got it.” (These 15 everyday habits are messing with your vaginal health more than you ever thought!)
Can you wear a tampon to the Obgyn?
They can put something on the exam table to absorb the blood. You can either ask to use the restroom to remove a tampon or take it out and dispose of it when you’re undressing and putting on a gown.
Can you get an annual exam while on your period?
Yes, it’s totally okay to get a pelvic exam when you’re on your period. But most nurses and doctors would rather do your pelvic exam on a non-period day when you’re not bleeding, or at least not bleeding heavily. That’s because menstrual fluid (aka period blood) can affect the results of some lab tests.
What happens at your first gynecologist appointment?
To start out, a visit for a gynecology exam is like any other doctor’s visit. Your doctor will talk to you about your general medical history. They’ll also ask about your sexual health history. This includes how many sexual partners you’ve had and if you use protection and contraception.
Do gynecologists get turned on by their patients?
However, some gynaecologists had more shocking confessions, including one male doctor who admitted he sometimes gets turned on by his patients.
Can a gynecologist tell the last time?
Can your doctor tell when you last had sex? She might be able to if it was the last thing you did before leaving home, says Lauren Streicher, MD, assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. The evidence may remain inside you for 12 hours.
Is it OK to go to the gynecologist while on your period?
While many women shy away from visiting the gynecologist during their period, it’s completely fine to keep your appointment. In fact, most gynecologists would recommend it. They are used to seeing vaginal bleeding, so there’s no need to feel embarrassed or reschedule.
Do I need to shave before seeing a gynecologist?
It’s not necessary to shave or wax around the vagina before your first visit to a gynecologist. You will want to be clean though, so be sure to shower that day, using a gentle soap to maintain proper vaginal hygiene.
Can you go to the gynecologist if you are a virgin?
Even if you’re a virgin (you’ve never had vaginal intercourse), you may need a pelvic exam if you are having certain problems. Having a pelvic exam doesn’t change anything, just as using tampons doesn’t change your hymen (the skin that partly covers the opening to your vagina).
Should I reschedule my PAP if I have my period?
Technically, you can get a Pap smear while on your period, but it may be better to reschedule to a time when you aren’t menstruating. Depending on how heavy your flow is, it may affect the results of your screening. If your flow is lighter, it may not be an issue.
