Okay, So I called my doctor's office today because I wanted to book a physical and get STD/STI check, and apparently my last physical was in May so I have to wait until then to get one.

Umm isn't that a little silly? Shouldn't I be able to have a physical whenever I want really?
Espcially when it's only 2 months difference??

Are you using insurance? Most of the time, insurance companies have certain requirements for the times between exams. So, for example, when I was using my parent's insurance, they would only pay for my regular PAP's once every 366 days. If I needed a PAP because of other concerns (which is something they would know because of the way the physician codes the visit) they might cover those, but the routine stuff only got covered once a year.
