When should you go to the gynecologist for the first time?
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).
