It involves the gynae inserting a, I think its called a speculum which holds open the vagina so he can take some scrapings from the cervix. It doesn't hurt at all but is a bit embarressing and uncomfortable. He may also push down on your stomach with his hand in your vagina to feel for anything unusual in your pelvic area which includes your your uterus, ovaries etc. Hope this helps.
