Gynecology as part of Adolescent Care

Published August 1, 2019


Between the ages of 13 and 15, it's recommended that teens have their first visit to the gynecologist.

The visit helps to establish a good patient-physician relationship, discuss healthy behaviors and address any concerns that may be common at that age, such as painful or irregular periods.
