What is the recommendation for a 28 yr old virgin regarding pelvic exams? Do I need to do them? Thanks.

Standards. The common standard for this exam is starting within 6 months of initial sexual activity or age 21. There are ways to modify the exam on virginal patients, using ultrasound and special speculums. Verifying the presence and size of uterine and ovarian structures is important.There are risks of having the equipment whether you are sexually active or not.
