that explains everything they do. It is also a great site for all kinds of information. :)

But, if you go into a clinic and get a prescription for birth control, they are required to schedule you for a yearly examination. They insert this metal thing into your vagina that opens it up so they can look at it. But you only need that if you start having sex and try and get birth control. If you are getting a physical that asks specifically about the health of your vagina, the doctor will usually just ask you how its doing. [ amarand's advice column | Ask amarand A Question ]
