• When Should Your Daughter See A Gynecologist?

    on Nov 30th, 2016

Gynecological care doesn’t begin when you need birth control or are ready to start having kids. In general, it is recommended that a first visit to the gynecologist for your daughter be scheduled once her menstrual cycle begins, or between the ages of 13 and 15. If you would like for your daughter to receive the HPV vaccine, an earlier visit may be necessary. 

 

There may not be a sense of urgency in getting your daughter to a gynecologist if she is not experiencing any problems. However, there are certain situations that warrant a prompt visit.

 

At North Pointe OB/GYN, we want to see your teen or pre-teen if she is experiencing any of the following:

 

 

When we see a teenage girl for her first exam, you can trust that we will work hard to make her comfortable and earn her trust. It may or may not be necessary to perform a pelvic exam on the very first visit. It will be important that we discuss her overall health as a woman and talk about any sexual activity. As her parent, it is wise to inform your daughter of what will be discussed so that she can be better prepared and feel more relaxed.

 

Our physicians at North Pointe OB/GYN understand what it takes to make patients feel confident and supported in their gynecological care – this is important for a young girl’s physical and emotional health as they develop and grow.
