Birth Control Initial Appointment

Question: Hi…I was wondering what an appointment is like if someone wants to start birth control. I know a pap test isn’t mandatory if you’re not 21…but is a full physical needed?

Answer: You are correct, a pap test is no longer required for someone to start birth control.  The patient will remove their clothing and wear a gown, and the nurse will check the heart and lungs, and will do a visual check to make sure there are no abnormal symptoms.
