Do you have to go to the gynecologist once you get your period?

 

 
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends a visit to the gynecologist when you’re between the ages of 13 and 15.


However, seeing a gyno doesn’t necessarily mean you need to undergo a pelvic exam. Instead, you can ask your new doc all those teen health-related questions. If you’re not comfortable talking this stuff over with your mom, ask your doctor. Your conversation will be private and confidential.

And, remember, if you’re having problems with missed or skipped periods, bad cramping, or heavy or prolonged bleeding, you definitely need to see a doctor, whether it be your family practitioner or a gyno! We know, we know—we already said that.
