Poll: Is the Pelvic Exam Important?


New recommendations against routine pelvic exams in adult women with no symptoms have been issued by the American College of Physicians. What do you think?

The American College of Physicians (ACP) has recommended against routine pelvic exams in women aged 21 and older who are not pregnant and have no complaints about anything “down there.” The ACP bases this recommendation on too little evidence that these exams have meaningful clinical benefit. Some physicians have even stated that these exams have become more of a “rite” than “right.”

Will you follow the ACP’s new recommendation?
