Dr. David Kurss
Obstetrics & Gynecology
In brief: Depends on your age
Mostly just talking.
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.
