Many females are familiar with the routine yearly visit to their gynecologist, but for most, the annual exam did not begin until their mid-twenties. There are numerous reasons for encouraging women to keep their yearly gynecological exam, but these do not just apply to older women. The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends that female teens and young adults who have not yet reached their 21st birthday should follow a routine exam schedule as there are plenty of benefits from early attention to gynecological health. For mothers of teenage girls, it is helpful to know why these visits are necessary.
I know going to the gynecologist for the first time is definitely not going to the make the list of the top 100 things you want to do in your life. Unfortunately, it’s something that you have to do to keep yourself healthy.
