What is a gynecologist, or whatever it's called?

-Smart ‘n’ Sassy

A gynecologist is a doctor who specializes in women’s health and hygiene. Your gynecologist can be a man or a woman and it doesn’t matter, as long as he/she makes you feel comfortable.

All women should visit a gynecologist at least once a year to check their reproductive health. It is also a good idea for teen girls to visit a gynecologist once you begin to have regular periods.

If you experience really bad cramps every month or if your period is very irregular, you should definitely visit a gynecologist. Ask your mom or another trusted adult if you have any questions or concerns.

Lots of love,
