Dear Carol

So....what's the deal with going to the gyno, exactly?

 

Dear Carol,
Exactly what is a gynecologist? When do you go to one? I am too afraid to ask my mom.

—Wants To Know

Dear Wants To Know,
A gynecologist is a doctor who specializes in the female body and knows about everything from menstruation to birth control to having babies. He or she has no male patients. Whereas pediatricians are experts on babies and kids, gynecologists know about women, young, old and in between. You can start seeing a gynecologist now or during your teens, and especially if you have lots of questions about puberty or sex. Then again, if you adore your pediatrician and he or she treats adolescents, there’s no hurry to switch.
