Early teens are the best time to make your daughter’s first gynecological appointment
The best time for your daughter to start seeing her Novant Health gynecologist is between age 13 and age 15. This age is recommended by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, even if your daughter is not sexually active, because it gives her the opportunity to establish a strong, trusting relationship with her gynecologist.
Your daughter may experience symptoms such as pelvic pain, irregular periods or excessive bleeding, or have questions about contraception, birth control and sexually-transmitted diseases. By keeping her gynecologist informed about these issues or questions as they arise, she is protecting her future reproductive health.
We offer many gynecologist’s offices that are conveniently located near your home, school and work. Some even have a special focus on adolescent gynecology.
Contact a Novant Health gynecologist to make your daughter’s first appointment.
