In brief: Depends on your age
Typically, no pelvic or breast exam is needed for a teen.
Birth control can be safely prescribed. Blood pressure is routinely checked, however. A vaginal infection will, however, require a minimal exam. In the early 20's on up, a breast and pelvic exam, with pap test is standard. There has recently been some adjustments as to the frequency of pap tests, as well as starting and stopping ages.
