WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO TAKE MY DAUGHTER TO THE GYNECOLOGIST?

“Many factors come into play when it comes to my 13-year-gynecological old’s needs. Is there an ideal age at which to make this move?”

According to the ACOG or American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, females should initially see a gynecologist when they are already at the ages of 13 and 15 to discuss their reproductive health. A pelvic exam isn’t necessary for most first-time patients. Many gynecologists will just conduct a wellness check and talk to a young girl about her development during a routine examination.

When your daughter visits her gynecologist, this is an excellent opportunity for her to build a trusting connection with her doctor.

Girls who have been sexually active (or are going to become sexually active), as well as those who have problems with their menstruation, should contact a gynecologist.
