Visiting the Gynecologist in your teens: 15 Reasons to Go

Visiting the gynecologist isn't always the first thing you need to do when you get your period. Read on to see if you should go.

Visiting the gynecologist will come eventually for every girl, and when it does, you'll see that it’s not so bad, but actually makes you feel healthy and confident in your changes! The good news: you don’t necessarily need to see your doctor the second you get your period. Unless you feel like there's something wrong, you most likely don’t have to visit your gynecologist for a couple of years.

This visit may be just a talk to get to know each other, ask questions and find out what to expect at future visits.

You also shouldn't hesitate to see your doctor if:

  1. You’re 14 and haven't noticed any changes from puberty

  2. You’re 16 and haven't had a period

  3. You’re having severe menstrual cramps or any other pelvic pains

  4. Your period is extra heavy, unusual or lasts more than a week

  5. You have vaginal itching, redness, sores, swelling, unusual odor, or discharge

  6. You might be pregnant

  7. You need to discuss safe sex

  8. You’ve been having periods for more than a year and have irregular periods

  9. You’ve missed more than three periods (You can wait three months if you are certain that you are not pregnant, but if there is a chance that you may be pregnant, you should see your doctor right away.)

  10. You experience a burning sensation while urinating

  11. You experience frequent urination

  12. You've injured your pelvic area

  13. You’ve had non-consensual sex

  14. You believe that you’ve been exposed to a sexually transmitted disease

  15. You notice a change in the regularity of your periods
