Vaginal Cultures - what to expect?

Ok, so earlier today I had a routine check up at my gynecologist's office. During the pap smear (which she still does, even though I have had the vaccine) I experienced some bleeding from my cervix. It was the first pelvic exam I ever had that was a little bit painful and uncomfortable. Usually I have no problems.
My doc wants me to go for some vaginal cultures. I read online what the test is to identify the cause of the vaginitis, but no real explanation about the exam itself.
Can anyone tell me what to expect from the exam? Will it be just like any other pelvic exam? or more?
Any info will help, thanks!
