In brief: Depends

Almost universally they will take a thorough history, including past medical history (hx) including info about periods, family hx, social hx (including ?S about sex, drugs & alcohol), medications, allergies.
If you've been seen there before they'll already have some of that. Then they will do a detailed exam. That could even include a breast exam and (but not usually at 18) a pelvic exam.
