They've never checked my urine during an annual physical..... just if I thought I had a UTI... I'd have to bring it in.

Re: What do doctors usually test your urine for during an annual physical

I have always had my urine check during my annual gyn exam. The reason being is they are checking for any signs of diabetes or any type of infection. It is also good that you have emptied your bladder before you have your exam because it can be uncomfortable to have an exam with a full bladder.
Sometimes a womens ob/gyn is there primary care, so often this is the only time that a complete exam is done and testing the urine for any disorders is common practice.
