A pelvic exam is an examination that your doctor or a nurse performs to make sure that your reproductive organs are healthy.
Probably the best reason to get a pelvic exam is that it includes a Pap test that can detect early stages of some types of cancers. Spotting these early signs of cancer could even save your life. Pelvic exams also make sure that your pelvic organs (uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries) are normal.
