This is also referred to as a bimanual examination because both hands are used - one internally and one externally on the abdomen.
The patient is asked to put on an examination gown, get on the examination table, and lay on her back with her feet in footholds.
Following that, lift your wrist up to apply anterior pressure toward the bladder until space underneath the fingers can be seen.
Ask the patient to change into a gown and specify how they should dress-underwear off, and gown open in the back.
Avoid vaginal intercourse, inserting anything into your vagina, and douching, at least 24 hours before your pelvic exam.
The cells will then be smeared on a glass slide and sent to a laboratory for analysis.
