Pelvic Exam

I am in my younger twenties and I have yet to have a pelvic exam. I don't have any health related reason to have one. But I do know that they are important. I guess I am scared a bit about what may happen. Could I get some information about what might happen during one? Thanks!

Re: Pelvic Exam

Well...I had my first one about 3 months ago (I'm in my early 20's myself) and I have to say it's not pleasant, but it's necessary (In my case, I had never had a Pap smear and I was having irregular periods). I think the gyno told me to breathe deeply. Insist on the smallest speculum (the tool they use to look inside your cervix) they have, unless you've had kids. I wasn't that scared because my mother told me about exactly what would happen.
