When should I start going to a Gynecologist?

Most people start to see a gynecologist between 13 and 15 years of age. A gynecologist, (or an obstetrician-gynecologist/ob-gyn), is a doctor who cares for women*. You do not need to have a period or be sexually active to see a gynecologist. As you develop into adulthood, it is important to understand the changes in your body and have a safe space to ask questions about your health.


*We use women here to mean people who identify as a woman, as well as those who have female organs such as a uterus, ovary or cervix.
