Dear BeingGirl Experts,

When should I first see the gynecologist? I am 14 years old and just got my period. Should I go yet?

 

Thanks,

Erica

Dear Erica,

Unless you have specific problems that need to be treated sooner, your first visit with your gynecologist (a doctor who specializes in female body parts and how they work) should happen sometime between the ages of 13 and 15 or when you become sexually active, based on which comes first.

 

Hope this is helpful,

Your BeingGirl Experts
