The first visit is to fill out paperwork and draw labs, and the second visit will be to see your OB, you may need to have an STD test. It depends on if they do that with bloodwork or if they do a pap for it, but they'll want to do it again. The military is cheap and does the pap. She will probably want to palpate your uterus as well just to see if everything feels OK.
