What is the right age to take this step? The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommends that girls first see a gynecologist when they’re between the ages of 13 and 15. Most girls will not need a pelvic exam during this first visit, though. Preadolescence is a great time to discuss the body, menstrual cycle, hormones, sexual health and psychosocial stressors (peer pressure, goals etc).
