Benefits of pelvic exams?

I'm going in for a general physical exam this Tuesday, and while the doctor agreed that I didn't need a pap (I've never been sexually active), she did suggest a manual exam. My period's a bit messed up, but it's been a bit messed up for years, and I'm not having any other symptoms.

I've heard people here say that pelvics aren't useful - does anyone have any reputable sources for this? I don't find being touched down there traumatic or bothersome, but I'd rather not go through a procedure with little to no benefit.
