What type of an appointment is it?  A full physical is usually longer than a typical appointment.

@Nic01:  20 minutes is probably just a meet and great.

Get whatever family history you have, along with your own medical history.  You’ll probably just be talking to the doctor.

Yes, since it’s been 5 years you should probably have a physical.  Here, a pap smear is typically done along with a physical, not as something separate.  Blood work is usually done, cholesterol, blood sugar, etc.  Doctors here usually encourage people to get one done once a year, although people can be bad with making the appointment.  New doctors also sometimes want to do a physical while skipping some of the tests since they can get the results.

Hard to say though as every country is different!
