In brief: Gyn visit

First pelvic exam and Pap smear with cultures for sexually transmitted diseases, if you are sexually active, begin at age 21.
A health history, full physical exam including a breast exam, as well as a visual exam of the vulva(outside), the vagina, and the cervix. The uterus as well as ovaries and tubes are checked by feel between the fingers of both hands, one in the vagina, one on your belly.

In brief: Relax

Although it is the first visit for your, it is not for your provider. Try as best to consider it like any other exam. Be calm and make sure all your concerns are addressed.
