Your First Pelvic Exam




Why Do I Need a Pelvic Exam?


Growing up is a wonderful thing! You have more freedom and are able to do more exciting things. With that freedom comes more responsibility and that includes taking care of your body.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends that a girl make her first visit to a gynecologist when she is between the ages of 13 and 15. Not all girls will need a pelvic exam during this initial visit, though. Many gynecologists will just do a regular health exam and talk to the girl about her development. Certainly by the time you're 18 you should have a pelvic exam. You should also get one when you become sexually active.
You may be worried about your first pelvic exam. It's very normal to be anxious about something when you don't know what to expect. Hopefully after reading this information, you will be reassured that it is simple, isn't painful and takes only about 5 minutes. It is also normal to feel embarrassed or uneasy about your first exam. However, if you know what to expect, it may help you relax. Your health care provider understands how you feel and will be sensitive and gentle, and answer any questions you have.
