Teenagers should visit a gynecologist when it seems they may be deciding to become sexually active, preferably before. If the teen is not yet contemplating sexual activity, an appropriate first visit would be during her junior or senior year in high school.

Other reasons for a teen visit would be evaluation of gynecological problems, such as menstrual irregularities, severe menstrual pain, or vaginal irritations.

The first visit may or may not include a complete physical exam depending on the reason for the visit. Informational brochures and handouts are provided that are age appropriate such as Birth Control Options, Menstruation, How to Prevent Sexually Transmitted Infections, and Your First Visit.
