In an examination of the cervix, speculum is inserted to check for human papilloma virus or ASCUS conditions. These tong-like instruments are used by medical practioners to examine the cervical tissue and vaginal wall. They are sized for ease of insertion into the vaginal orifice and maneuvered to permit view of the cervix while avoiding the more sensitive anterior wall and urethra.
