When should I start seeing a gynecologist?

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends that girls should have their first visit with a gynecologist between the ages of 13 and 15 years for health screening and education. Topics of discussion may include: menstrual cramps, menstrual irregularities, eating disorders, tobacco or alcohol use, or early sexual activity. Most adolescents will not require a pelvic exam at their first visit.
