At what age should women begin seeing a gynecologist?

According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), it’s a good idea for girls to begin seeing a gynecologist between the ages of 13 and 15. When you build a relationship with your doctor from a young age, you typically feel more comfortable discussing sexual health, reproductive issues, and other gynecology concerns as you get older. At your first gynecology appointment, you may simply ask questions and speak to your doctor about general health concerns and lifestyle.

In many cases, your doctor doesn’t conduct a pelvic exam at your first appointment, unless you’re having problems with your period or you’re sexually active. You can expect a general physical exam and an external genital exam, along with height and weight measurements and a blood pressure check. At subsequent appointments, your doctor may conduct a pelvic exam, including a Pap test, and routine vaccinations and testing.

The caring gynecology team at Womens Health Care, PC, welcomes women of all ages and ethnicities to their integrative practice and offers compassionate care at every stage of life.
