The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommends that teenage girls first visit an OB/GYN between the ages of 13 and 15. Establishing a relationship with an OB/GYN ensures that a young woman knows where to turn for information and care relating to pelvic pain, irregular periods, sexually transmitted diseases, contraception and other issues.

What Happens at the First OB/GYN Visit?

The first visit usually involves getting to know each other. We discuss things like lifestyle and health habits. These things may include nutrition, exercise, social activities, smoking, medications, and use of other substances. We also take the time to discuss menstrual, reproductive and family history. Family history is very important, since there are some medical conditions that are genetically based, such as endometriosis and breast and ovarian cancer. We are here to educate teens on how to try and avoid these conditions and improve their long-term health.

What to Expect

Depending on your age, if you have had sex, or if you have any problems, you may have certain exams. These tests may include a general physical exam, breast exam, pelvic exam, Pap test, or further tests.

There is no need to feel scared or embarrassed. This is a good time to ask your doctor any questions you might have. This is a chance to find answers.
