The American Association of Gynecology recommends girls have their first gynecologic visit between the ages of 13 and 15 years old. Trust the professionals at CHMG to put young women at ease, offer preventive health services, and address a wide range of questions or concerns (for example, puberty, PCOS and painful periods).
Teens are encouraged to bring a parent to appointments. We also recommend parents allow time for a young woman to talk with her provider one-on-one during the visit.
Girls younger than 12 years old need a physician’s referral for care.
