Pediatric And Adolescent Gynecology

First GYN visit should be between the ages 13 and 15

Pediatric And Adolescent Gynecology

Childhood and adolescence are marked by many developmental milestones, both physically and cognitively. Adolescent girls are confronted with numerous challenges and the decisions they make can have consequences on their overall health and well-being.

We encourage girls to have their first gynecologic visit between the ages of 13 and 15 in order to facilitate a healthy transition into adulthood.

The first visit may be just a conversation with the doctor to address health concerns. Usually, a pelvic exam is not necessary during the first visit unless problems such as abnormal bleeding, discharge or pain occur.
