The first visit to a gynecologist is an important step in a woman’s life. It’s usually recommended that a woman has her first visit by the age of 21 or as soon as she becomes sexually active. It may be valuable to begin visiting a gynecologist at an earlier age if there are any concerns about reproductive health such as missed periods or stomach pain.
A gynecological visit is also an ideal way to learn more about pregnancy prevention, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and other topics pertaining to a woman’s reproductive system.
At A Woman’s Place, we take pride in the number of women who choose us for their first gynecological exam, many of whom come back year after year for their annual exams and pregnancies.
