During a normal annual physical, will a primary care doctor do a pelvic exam and/or a breast exam on a 19 year old female?

    When I go in for my yearly check up my doctor simply checks whether I'm alive or not. Puts the stethascope on me, feels my pulse, checks my blood work. As she says I am boringly healthy, in fact healthier than most.

    Yes, for an annual physical a pelvic exam and breast are done. Don't get hung up on your age. If you start your period a day or two of the appt. you'll need to call the office and tell the receptionist. Some doctors don't mind and others do.

    In the US that's generally a separate exam than the general physical, although they can be performed at the same appointment. If you want it, you can certainly use your words and request it.
