Vaginal examinations: women's experiences and preferences.


A 70 item questionnaire, completed by 199 women attending the Wellington family planning clinic, sought information on the experience of their previous vaginal examination. A wide variety of experiences and preferences was found but in particular, women appreciated an explanation of the procedure, a warm speculum, and a relationship with the doctor that was sensitive to the woman's feelings during the examination.
