Tests, exams needed for yearly exam

I am turning 48 this year and wondering what tests and exams I should expect to have.

Still have normal periods, but having frequent hot flashes. Feeling more sluggish than usual and having a difficult time losing weight. When I called to schedule my exam I was told I wouldn't need a pap smear, the new recommendation is every two years???

I see a gyn for pap each year and an internal medicine specialist for everything else.

Should I ask for my hormone levels to be checked? Thyroid? What else should I anticipate?

Thanks so much,
Kelley
