Women who have normal results may skip a year between Pap tests starting at age 30. Pelvic exams also check for signs of infection or conditions related to sexual activity or other health issues.

Some women experience breast pain, lumps or discomfort. These conditions may be related to natural changes hormonal levels each month. Or, they may indicate another condition. During your exam, your doctor will check your breasts for abnormal lumps, bumps or discharge.
