What Teens Can Expect From Their First Appointment With The Gynecologist

 Going to the gynecologist for the first time can sometimes feel stressful for teens. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends girls begin seeing the gynecologist between the ages of thirteen and fifteen.
